All the prohibitions on blood in the Bible referred to eating blood.
The technology to do transfusions was not available when the Bible was written.
Jehovah's Witnesses are aware of this. However they believe there is no difference between eating blood and having a blood transfusion.
Jehovah's Witnesses ask this question. If your doctor told you to stop drinking alcohol, would you inject it directly into your veins?
That's why zealous Jehovah's Witnesses will resist having a blood transfusion. They think injecting blood into their veins is the same thing as eating it.
Jehovah's Witnesses don't want to die but are willing to accept the consequences. When faced with a life and death situation a faithful Jehovah's Witness will seek medical attention and if available they would accept alternatives to blood transfusions.
Jehovah's Witnesses believe that if they break God's law to save their life, they might live, but eventually they will die. By breaking God's law on blood, they risk losing out on everlasting life. Thus Jehovah's Witnesses believe it is wise to avoid blood transfusions. If they die, they believe will be resurrected to life and live forever because they kept Jehovah's law. Jesus said, 'For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it.' Luke 9:24
