Jehovah’s Witness baby in critical but stable condition

Baby Ammon, who was made a ward of the State after his Jehovah’s Witness parents objected to a surgical procedure two weeks ago, was given a blood transfusion and remains in a critical but stable condition at the Port of Spain General Hospital.

Speaking with reporters at the Mt Hope Women’s Hospital on Wednesday, Health Minister John Rahael confirmed the infant’s condition but declined further comment on the matter.

Head of the Neonatal Unit at the hospital, Dr Petronella Manning-Alleyne, sought legal help to allow her to treat the infant born to Winston and Joanne Ammon, as the baby needed a blood transfusion which the parents objected to based on religious beliefs.

Jehovah’s Witnesses

Theologically, Jehovah’s Witnesses are a cult of Christianity. The oppressive organization does not represent historical, Biblical Christianity in any way.

Sociologically, it is a destructive cult whose false teachings frequently result in spiritual and psychological abuse, as well as needless deaths.

In order to be able to support its unbiblical doctrines, the Jehovah’s Witnesses organization has created it’s own version of the Bible. The so-called “New World Translation” is rejected by all Christian denominations.

The infant was made a ward of the state and the situation remains unchanged.

On the issue concerning the outbreak of tuberculosis at the Ministry of Health’s head office at Park and Edward Streets, Port of Spain, Rahael said: “I am still working in the Ministry of Health,” but quickly added that “everyone on the second floor was tested and we are waiting on the results”.

He denied that vaccinations were continuing, adding that two people had been referred to Caura Hospital for further testing.
