Footnotes / References
There doesn't seem to be a footnote / reference system like on Wikipedia. Am I missing it or does it not exist?

- I happened to notice your question, so I'll respond: No, we don't have a "ref" system on this wiki. That requires a special package that has not been installed here. I believe Sans Deity and probably Kazim could do the upgrade, but they haven't gotten around to it (they have been pestered about it already). - dcljr 17:53, 20 October 2008 (CDT)
"Are you sure? Postoperative re-transfusion of blood extracted before an operation was not a "matter of conscience" last I checked. It was disallowed outright, just like a regular whole blood transfusions.
If it's kosher now, boy, things change so easily. You'd think they were just making them up as they go ;)

If you have something printed by the Watchtower Society that outright forbids it, by all means change it. When I was studying ~5 years ago, the elders told me that it wasn't forbidden, but that it was strongly discouraged because they felt that the blood was unsafe if stored. They had some kind of conspiracy theory that the doctors would swap it with someone else's so as to force you t sin. The Watchtower allows elders to disfellowship without disclosing the reasons, so they pretty much will vary from Kingdom Hall to Kingdom Hall. They use the magazines and a centralized system to claim homogeneity throughout, but the local elders definitely reign supreme (so long as they obey the big bosses).
