SAD: Jehovah Witness Woman Dies After Refusal of Blood Transfer

Jehovah's Witnesses are defending their ban on blood transfusions after the death of a new mom in Quebec, Canada this month. Family members of Eloise Dupuis, 27, say she was influenced to decline a potentially lifesaving blood transfusion after a bedside visit by a "hospital liaison committee" of Jehovah's Witnesses, the CBC reports.
Dupuis, a practicing member of the church, died Oct. 12 after suffering a hemorrhage six days after giving birth by C-section. (Her baby is doing fine.) A Quebec coroner opened an inquest, but Health Minister Gaetan Barrette said Dupuis made the choice on her own.
"She knew, and she made it clear, that if something was to happen, because of her religion she didn't want any transfusion," he told the CBC.
