Editor’s note: This article has been updated. It originally stated that Jehovah’s Witnesses are not allowed to drink, which is incorrect.

There has been some discussion in the press about a coronial enquiry into the death of a Jehovah’s Witness who refused a blood transfusion and lost a litre of blood after a hysterectomy.
