Because they veiw transfusions as against the edicts in the Bible. This is merely the interpretational extreme that they have gone to.

Assuming the best, that they did not want to see their children dead, I have to admit that their devotion to their faith is astounding. Likewise with their stupidity.

Why continue? Because we must. Because we have the call. Because it is nobler to fight for rationality without winning than to give up in the face of continued defeats. Because whatever true progress humanity makes is through the rationality of the occasional individual and because any one individual we may win for the cause may do more for humanity than a hundred thousand who hug their superstitions to their breast.

JWs cannot accept any blood or blood products as part of their belief. This isn't the first or last case of it affecting the life of their children.
