Yes, Seventh-day Adventists do believe in blood transfusions. You may be confusing Seventh-day Adventists with Jehovah's Witnesses, who are an entirely separate denomination.

Christians views on blood transfusions are that the bible does not say whether its right or not but they believe that if there are 4 blood types then maybe its suggesting that God would want us to give and receive blood to those who need it.

approximately 5,000,000 blood transfusions happen a year in the US. If you average it out that is 13,968 blood transfusions a day!

The group is know as "Jehovah's Witnesses". They believe that receiving blood transfusions are the same as drinking blood, which is stickily forbidden in the old testament law and repeated in the new testament book of Acts where Gentile believers were to "they keep themselves from things offered to idols, and from blood, and from strangled, and from fornication." The problem comes down to whither or not transfusions are drinking blood or not.

Many religions oppose abortions, because they believe it is murder. The Jehovah's Witnesses oppose blood transfusions because they believe that God prohibits the eating of blood. Catholics oppose euthanasia, because they believe it is murder. Catholics also oppose in vitro fertilization, sterilization, most forms of birth control, and artificial insemination. Christian Scientists oppose many medical practices. Scientologists oppose pharmaceutical psychiatry.

In medicine, women prefer to have a woman overseeing their medical care, and men prefer male doctors. There are no religious objections to blood transfusions, however Hindu people believe in reincarnation with a cause and effect relationship.

There are no special benefits to having one particular blood type. The only possible advantage to having a specific blood type is the fact that it may be more common, so, transfusions and such will be much easier to come by.

I believe so. I once heard of blood transfusions from pigs. If this is true, than pigs must also have blood types.

Blood transfusions are given to restore lost blood, to improve clotting time, and to improve the ability of the blood to deliver oxygen to the body's tissues.
