As shocked and appalled as we may be at seeing Muslim children and youths being martyred for Allah we should be even more so at Jehovah’s Witnesses who claim to be Christian sacrificing their own children in the name of Jehovah of the Watchtower. Jehovah’s Witnesses claim that abortion is murder and denounce it yet at the same time are willing to allow their own children to die needlessly by refusing life saving blood transfusions. This kind of martyrdom has been going on in North America and around the world for decades with untold thousands of victims. One such victim was Bethany Hughes.
Bethany Hughes was martyred for Jehovah of The Watchtower at the tender age of 17 in 2002. Since that time, her father Lawrence Hughes has been battling the Watchtower in Canadian courts. Did Bethany really have to die? Do any Jehovah’s Witnesses really have to die for refusing blood transfusions? Well Lawrence Hughes doesn’t think so and neither do many who have lost loved ones in this manner. His fight continues to this day. He is currently in a position to appeal a court decision that sided with the Watchtower and is seeking your help. The following message is from an email he sent me dated September 5th, 2008.
EMERGENCY MESSAGE FROM LAWRENCE HUGHES
1) Legal experts say that I will win the Appeal. Refer to Conflicting Interests, Conflicting Judgments and the Ethical Obligations of Lawyers and Judges
2) Please view my youtube video entitled “INSTITUTIONAL MURDER”. I plan on creating other videos and I would appreciate your feedback and ideas on other videos.
I plan on creating other videos and I would appreciate your feedback and ideas on other videos.
3) Please visit Bethany’s Website.
As pointed out by Kerry Louderback-Wood and others, the Watchtower Society over Jehovah’s Witnesses has taken out of context or misapplied quotes from secular authorities. It keeps giving out dated and/or vague information concerning medical treatments. The Canadian Red Cross states that 50% of Canadians will need blood in some form. Most don’t get the needed blood and afterwards many die! The ratio may be far worse for many still developing nations. The Watchtower can deny this and similar estimations all they want, but let the record also note that they are ignoring the fact that even one sacrificed human is one too many! How many hundreds of thousands must die to draw due attention from media and officials worldwide?!! (See QUESTIONS FOR JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES by William I. and Joan Cetnar, 1982 edition; p. 26 of 1996 edition by Prometheus Books of David A. Reed’s book Blood On The Altar: Confessions Of A Jehovah’s Witness Minister)
Surely you too are sickened by even the thought of senseless Institutional deaths or murder!
Yes, in almost every hospital in the world, Jehovah’s Witnesses are dying……………. refusing life saving whole blood transfusions.
Millions of Jehovah’s Witnesses are in danger of dying unless something is done to prevent it.
These victims are being coerced under duress of severe loss of normal ties including with family members, brain-washed and misled.
The Watchtower Society practices amount to senseless wrongful Martyrdom and on a regular basis they honor the deaths of Jehovah’s Witnesses who die refusing a blood transfusion.
Yes, the cover of the May 22, 1994 Awake! magazine published by the Watchtower Society shows pictures of twenty six beautiful children with their faces gleaming and smiling. Many of them died refusing a blood transfusion. It is for honoring their deaths.
The title of the magazine brags, “Youths Who Put God First.”
The preamble on the second page reads, “In former times thousands of youths died for putting God first. They are still doing it, only today the drama is played out in hospitals and courtrooms, with blood transfusions the issue.”
The first story is about Adrian, a fourteen year old boy who died refusing a blood transfusion. The title of his story reads, “He remembered his Creator in the Days of his Youth.”
This is one of many stories in this magazine telling how Jehovah’s Witness children were Martyred.
My sixteen year old daughter Bethany told me that her lawyer from headquarters, David Gnam, promised her that she would be featured in the “Awake!” magazine, if she died refusing a blood transfusion.
Watchtower officials convinced my young daughter that arsenic would cure her skin cancer, took her into hiding and arranged for her to receive the arsenic. The arsenic given instead of standard blood transfusions killed her.
Bethany had received treatments for leukemia and her disease was in remission. In an affidavit prepared by the Watchtower lawyers, Bethany stated that she was afraid that if the disease did return, that Child Welfare would seek an Apprehension and Treatment Order and force her to receive blood transfusions.
I sent all the medical records to three experts, one being the World Expert of Pediatric Oncology. The experts agree that Bethany had a 50% chance of living if she had received standard medical care. The experts also agree that arsenic is not a cure for skin cancer or AML leukemia which was the disease Bethany had.
Bethany could be alive today if they had not convinced her about the arsenic. Bethany had a fighting chance to live, and they took that away from her..
Will you help me to put an end to the needless deaths of Jehovah’s Witnesses? Will you help me put an end to the Watchtower Society’s “Blood Policy”? I have two other daughters to worry about. Others have also lost loved ones and may lose still more.
I have filed a “Wrongful Death Lawsuit” against the Watchtower Society. Please help save the lives of Jehovah’s Witnesses. Please help me to put an end to the needless deaths of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
Further, please also email information about loved ones who were Jehovah’s Witnesses and who died refusing a blood transfusion, along with their photos if possible. The plan is to have a Memorial of those victims who died for the Watchtower Blood Policy. A video is being considered for that too.
In conclusion, if you have any questions then please send them in now to firstname.lastname@example.org. The clock is ticking and your support is needed!
