    Well the Jehovah's Witness religion prohibits members receiving blood transfusions (something to do with the Bible stating that they cannot consume blood) so I assume they don't donate either.

    Yes, Wry is right. The Jehovah's Witness are forbidden from either donating or receiving blood through a transfusion.

    yeah wry and Jthomp are right.. according to Jehovah's Witnesses believe that Christians should not accept blood transfusions or donate or store their own blood for transfusion.
    Prohibited products:
    The following medical procedures are prohibited:
    1. Transfusion of allogeneic whole blood, or of its constituents of red cells, white cells, platelets or plasma.
    2. Transfusions of pre-operative self-donated (autologous) blood.

    I'm not sure, but I think the Christian Scientist's may have something against it as well. I know they don't accept blood donations either. You might want to check into this though, as I am not positive.
