Jehovah dad ‘died’ in hospital

The horrifically-injured Jehovah’s Witness being denied a life-saving blood transfusion technically died in hospital, it was revealed last night.

John Edwards, 57, had to be resuscitated by medics when his heart stopped after he was mown down at 60mph by a suspected drunk driver.

Would You Trust The WatchTower Society?
While the Watchtower Society (the organization behind Jehovah’s Witnesses) claims to represent God, its leaders can not make up their minds about what He says.
They have come up with their own version of the Bible (necessary to support the organization’s unbiblical teachings), constantly go back and forth on a wide variety of issues, and keep getting their prophecies about the end of the world wrong. See these quotes — from their own publications — for documentation.
Here is the Watchtower’s history on the issue of blood. Many Jehovah’s Witnesses (or their kids) have died as a result of that nonsense. Would you trust your life — and that of your loved ones — to these quacks?
Theologically, Jehovah’s Witnesses is a cult of Christianity.
Sociologically, the movement has cult-like elements as well.

But his wife Sheila, who is also a Witness, was last night STILL refusing to allow doctors to give him blood because it is banned by their faith.

The Sun told yesterday how the family is in turmoil, because the couple’s two sons do not share their beliefs.

Sources revealed yesterday that John, of Southall, West London, lost half his blood and may lose his mangled left arm — if he survives at all.

He has internal injuries but surgeons cannot operate because he would need replacement blood.

Sons Jonathan, 36, and Tom, 29, are respecting their mother’s wishes.

They joined her in a heartbreaking vigil at council worker John’s bedside at Ealing Hospital, West London.

Tom told The Sun: “My dad has always made his own decisions. Hopefully he will be able to speak for himself soon.”

Sheila, 61, told medics John signed a form refusing to have a transfusion — but she cannot find it.

A family source said: “It’s torture for Tom and Jonathan to watch their father suffer when blood could save him.”
