I ask this question at least 5 times a day at work. (I work at a Pediatrician's office.)
Other then JW's not accepting blood transfusions what other considerations are there?? Do you personally have any?
We NEVER have anyone say yes around here.

Absolutely. Our culture has a basic belief of trusting all decisions made by doctors. You should have seen the fuss I caused when I had my daughter and when my sister had her baby. I made sure to research basic procedures (giving pitocin, episiotomy, best positions, etc) so that I could request more natural remedies. Like giving my sister more time to dilate instead of giving her pitocin. Or using antibiotics instead of pitocin because my sisters water had been broken for 12 hours. I think most hospitals expect women in labor to come in, lay down, and do what the doctor says.
When my daughter was supposed to be vaccinated, I asked so many questions that her pediatrician could not answer. I told him we would vaccinate when we knew the answers.
I also disagree with life support, chemo, and many other man made chemical treatments.
