Re discussion of death rates among believers. Actually, there are some statistics in one very important area.
Jehovah's witnesses refuse blood transfusions. This has had a disastrous effect on women giving birth. Here's some stats:
â€œIn the CEMD the very high risk of mortality in women who refuse blood transfusion was highlighted. The death rate in this group was 1 per 1,000 maternities compared with an expected incidence of less than 1 per 100, 000 maternities.â€
