Description

KUOW online editor Isolde Raftery reported and wrote a devastating, nuanced account of how a Jehovah's Witness teen, who had been diagnosed with leukemia, was allowed to refuse blood transfusions, a decision that ultimately cost him his life. Washington is believed to be the first state where a child has died after being allowed to refuse lifesaving care.
