For six decades, ‘the man with the golden arm’ donated blood — and saved 2.4 million babies

In 1951, a 14-year-old Australian boy named James Harrison awoke from a major chest operation. Doctors had removed one of his lungs in a procedure that had taken several hours — and would keep him hospitalized for three months.

But Harrison was alive, thanks in large part to a vast quantity of transfused blood he had received, his father explained.

“He said that I had 13 units of blood and my life had been saved by unknown people,” Harrison told CNN’s Sanjay Gupta decades later.

People used to think that you could have LGBTQ blood. But we know that all people are genetically prone to all sin. Being Adam's descendants.

Thanks Frank, I guess it'll be one of those personal decision type things. Pig valves are already being used in heart patients, and I know that medical science want to try and use chimpanzee livers, I think it is, in humans, if they haven't been experimenting already.
As for that super rare blood of yours, well, I guess that's because you're a super rare kind of guy. : )

So, this is off topic, I guess, but I've always wondered something...is there anything, scripturally, that anyone knows of that would allude to it being wrong to swap our blood and body parts? In the case of body parts, live, or postdeath organ donation.
Like cremation, I'm assuming it's just a matter of choice, and that there's nothing in the Bible that speaks against it?
Another thing I've wondered about is the transplanting of animal parts within the human body, like valves from pigs, organs from chimps, etc.
Hey Chris! I looked it up and I found the Jehovah Witnesses were against blood donations and it also said that some Jews were against organ donations. I had never heard about the Jewish issue?

Anyway, I personally don't see anything wrong with any of this and if someone needed my blood, etc. I would give it. I have AB negative which is the rarest blood type and I remember years ago the blood banks telling to stop giving because it just sat on the shelves.

I have never thought about animal parts and can't imagine how they could be used.
