Blood Transfusion or not?

A Southall resident is critically injured in a hit-and-run car accident.

He needs a blood transfusion.

He cannot speak for himself but his wife insists that he would not want one because it is against Jehovah's Witnesses beliefs.

His sons do not share their beliefs.

Is it a "barbaric and senseless belief"?

Or is the true meaning lost in the literal interpretation?

Should the wife be prosecuted for upholding her husband's wishes?

Why do we want all others to understand our beliefs and rejects theirs?
