Well, that's nice Mr. Rabbi.
BTW, have you checked with your local hospitals to ask whether or not they can verify what race, gender, and religion the source of every bag of blood they keep in storage is?
Didn't think so. Otherwise, you would know that THEY DON'T KNOW.
'Cause people who are DYING and need a blood transfusion typically don't nitpick such stupid things.
So! You can either kill yourself and kill your children by refusing all blood like the JW's do because you don't know the source, or you can make up some ritual to "purify" that "tainted" blood that someone very kindly took time out of their day to volunteer to give so your selfish and elitist life can continue.

"It is such a beautiful thought that we are the heirs of 4 billion years of evolution and we are cousins of all living things. When you put that against the measly, piddling ideas that are in Genesis, there is just no comparison." ~ Richard Dawkins
