interesting confirmation

In this post I made the claim that we are morally obligated to treat Jehovah’s Witnesses against their will because of the special nature of their religious prohibition.

In this article, the scenario I described as optimal took place. In other words, a family refused to allow their child to be saved with a blood transfusion, but would allow the surgery if the judge ordered the medical team to do it anyway. That’s what happened. The judge ordered the surgery and the parents said they had a clean conscience and that the judge and the medical team would have to answer for their wrongdoing (performing a blood transfusion). But since the doctor who performed the surgery was Hindu, he probably wasn’t that worried about the Jehovah’s Witness view of what constituted damnation.
