Blood transfusions are not taboo in the Catholic church. =Answer= The above poster is correct and you are thinking of Jehovah Witness.
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.
The Dominicans are a Catholic religious order. The Catholic church takes no position against Blood transfusions as a normal medical practice. The Jehovah"s Witnesses and Christian Science ( two separate faiths) are OPPOSED to blood transfusions- and a good deal else! I have never even seen questions about Blood Transfusions in any Catholic religious q and a columns- including those on the internet such as Catholic Answers. no red light.
