Pregnant Woman Reportedly Dies After Her Jehovah Witness Husband Rejects Doctor’s Recommendation

(This is not the woman’s picture) A pregnant Jehovah Witness member who has been in labor for days has reportedly died.

According to a Facebook user who shared the story, the woman died as a result of her husband’s refusal for her to take in blood because of her blood shortage.

Her husband, who is also a member of Jehovah Witness Church said it is against the doctrine of the church. The doctor who wanted to go ahead by force had to stop because the husband threatened to take it up with him in court.

Some minutes later, the doctors asked him to take his wife to Lagos State Teaching Hospital, LUTH, for better health care facilities that could condole non blood transfusion. He was requested to get an ambulance for transportation.

DOC: Your wife is short of blood. She needs an immediate blood transfusion.

Husband: Same thing they said from the hospital she has been in the last 3 days of labour. We are Jehovah witness, we don’t accept unknown blood.

DOC: This is highly important to save your wife’s life and the unborn baby.

Husband: We have worked for the lord with all our strength, he can’t fail us, she can’t die.

DOC: I may need to proceed forcefully if you don’t accept.

Husband: Then be ready to face the law in court.

So the doctor went back to the theater, asked the woman if she has another relative close by who can sign to receive blood while she was wheeled out of the theater.

The woman cried with her pale eyes and begged the husband to allow the doctors transfuse but he refused bluntly. I was so angry and I walked up to him. Tried convincing but he was so adamant and stubborn.

Some minutes later, the doctors asked him to take his wife to LUTH, for better health care facilities that could condole non blood transfusion. He was requested to get an ambulance for transportation. To my surprise, this nigga got a Volvo stretcher ambulance meant for dead people. Gosh, so angry at this point.

Called a couple of people around and I aided a quick release of a proper life saving ambulance. While wheeling this woman to the ambulance after wasting about 4hours, she gave up in tears and was later confirmed that the unborn baby also died.

Wow! What a wicked world in the name of a borrowed religion. Then the husband bursted into tears. I didn’t do much, I moved close, looked straight into his eyes, slapped and gave him a couple kicks which later threw the whole general hospital into chaos.

I later reminisced over it the following day and asked myself this questions; why would I allow my loved one die in the name of a religion? Should the religion save lives or kill?”

  • So I will die because my husband refuses me to take blood all in the name of religion. I think they should start arresting men who won’t allow their spouses take blood because of one rubbish religious doctrine. Why didn’t the woman tell the doctor to go ahead? She doesn’t want to disobey her husband because she wants to remain a Mrs after giving birth. These Jehovah’s witnesses and their crazy doctrines smh. May her soul rest in peace.
