Jehovah’s Witness ‘within rights’ to refuse blood transfusion

Jehovah’s Witness ‘within rights’ to refuse blood transfusion

Eloise Dupuis, 27, died in Quebec in 2016 of multiple organ failure following complications from a Caesarean section.

As a Jehovah’s Witness, she repeatedly told hospital staff she did not want to receive a blood transfusion.

She refused treatment even as doctors warned she would die without it. She died nearly a week after giving birth.
