A Nigerian father residing in Sapele, Delta state, has refused medical assistance for his ailing daughter, Precious, just because his church, Jehovah’s Witness, is against blood transfusion.
According to reports, the child suffers from Hydrocephalus and might need blood transfusion if a surgery is carried out on her.
During a chat with an activist, Harrison, the father of the child said he is not opposed to medical help for his daughter but what he will never allow is for a blood transfusion to be done on his 1 year and 7 months old daughter.
In his words 👇
”We in Jehovah’s witnesses, we don’t take blood. I would not want to transfuse blood into the child. We will not accept blood transfusion. If in the course of surgery they would transfuse blood in the child, we would not want that. I don’t want my baby to die but that is our faith”
