The Friendly Atheist website [served by Patheos.com] reports that a judge in Montreal, Quebec, Canada may have saved a fourteen-year-old girl’s life. In his decision, Judge Granosik gave the doctors permission to overrule the young girl’s own decision to choose not to accept a potentially life-saving blood transfusion.
The evidence is clear (thanks to the extensive work and research of the Australian Royal Commission) that Jehovah’s Witnesses have not only failed to protect the children in their midst – but have also shrugged their responsibilities and resisted any efforts to make needed changes in their policies.
Europa Press reports that AbusosTJ (JW Abuses), an activist group in Spain, plans to file a legal complaint against the Watchtower offices in Spain. This action is due to their refusing to release internal documents, files and other evidence involving dozens of child abuse cases within the Jehovah’s Witness religion.
