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.
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.

I know that some Christians (Jehovah's Witness) do not allow blood transfusion and they claim it is based on religious reason. Does it mean that others are sinners for disobeying God's instruction?
