Pretty sure transfusions are medically indicated.
I agree. A transfusion is often a lifesaver. But sometimes people decide they don't want to be saved, for a variety of reasons, and it's their right to refuse treatment.

But to go back to your earlier point about my choice of words. Believe me, I do choose carefully.
For a patient to "Comply" is to simply be treated for their ailments, and out the door.
Patients who refuse to comply put not just themselves, but others at risk.
Hospital staff just want to do their job and go home to their families.
No disagreement here, except for the weird choice of "comply" as a description of a person choosing to accept medical care.

Time to hit back.
I want to ask, why do you not adopt the old text to modern medicine?
Was this directed at me? How is this "hitting back"?

She wants the transfusion, only "the friend" is pressuring the couple to not do it. I find it (him) highly malicious.
While I do understand that religious groups have their practices. I would think that preserving a mother's life would be the cornerstone of each.
It is the cornerstone of mine.
Starting with Joseph.

And if JC walked around a hospital these days? He'd be all about it. Giving hugs to the staff and thanking them. Sitting with patients for a few minutes to counsel them. Supporting the efforts to heal and serve the community.

Well, that is my belief. We are all entitled to our own.
I do not mock or disparage anyone's beliefs. They are yours.
But now you know my beliefs you can perhaps understand my consternation.

I am Jibbeldy AF over this.

However, i do respect the dialogue we have had so far, and appreciate how cordial it has been. So thank you.
Truly.

You guys are alright, even if i'm out of shape over this.

Dammit, I can't find the right piece of software to edit in some text over a cut and paste picture in Word. Just need to figure out how to arc text (Word Art I'm sure somehow) and then get it into the pic as I need it to be. Has to be 15 years since I tried to do something like this. Software manipulation is such a perishable skill. :(

Shit my sister had two duis and the attendant suspensions. One time she got pulled over while suspended AND dui but for whatever reason they didn't test her so she got away with it. But the kicker was that she had some coke in her pocket (miami kind not Atlanta kind) and somehow while cuffed got it out and hidden in the backseat. Anyway lots of times where her life could be ruined by the state instead of just by her.
DUH!

Ohhhhh. This is a totally different scenario. Yeah, the "friend" needs to respect the patient's personal wishes. Yikes.

Yeah, if a person were receiving pressure from anyone about what to do with his or her healthcare, that would bother me as well.

John Lennon's "Imagine" is super relevant here...

He actually sounds like he’s quoting “Lightning Crashes” by Live in the post above yours
My exact thought.

Certain member of my wife’s family do not watch sports except for playoffs, yet love to proclaim their opinions (criticisms) whenever they’re watching. It’s the most ignorant shit too
