Doctors were forced to let a pregnant woman and her unborn child die in a hospital after the mother refused a blood transfusion because she was a Jehovah’s Witness.

According to reports by Daily Star, Experts say the 28-year-old expectant mother had an 80 per cent chance of surviving if she had gone ahead with the treatment.

Shortly after turning down the transfusion, she and the unborn baby tragically died.

Staff at the Royal Hospital for Women and Prince of Wales Hospital in Sydney – who were put in a difficult compromising situation – claim the deaths could have been avoided because the majority of sufferers go into remission.

Obstetricians at the hospital were unable to perform a caesarean because the woman "most likely would have bled to death", the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

The baby died and the mum suffered a stroke and multi-organ failure shortly afterwards.

Jehovah's Witnesses follow the Bible very strictly and the sacred script prohibits ingesting blood
