By Steve Doughty for the Daily Mail. A teenage Jehovah's Witness must have a blood transfusion to save her life despite her religious objections, a senior judge ruled today. The High Court heard doctors must go ahead with the procedure because, although the year-old is intelligent and able to make her own decisions, she should not be allowed to die.
