Prince Needs Hips Replaced, But His Religion Forbids It


Prince walks around with a cane, but he may end up in a wheelchair, if he doesn't undergo the surgical procedure to get both hips replaced.

But that may not happen because Prince is a devout Jehovah’s Witness and followers of that faith don't believe in blood transfusions, which he may need during the surgery.

“He’s in a lot of pain. He’s popping pain killers and hoping it will all go away," a source told The Hollywood Reporter.

According to that report, Prince has been plagued with this pain since 2005 and was advised to get one hip replaced back then. But he declined the surgery. In 2007 and 2008, however, after the situation worsened, he agreed to a “secret surgery," but he never followed through.

Now he's is walking with a diamond-studded cane to keep him upright.

His religion is OK with him walking around looking like a woman (only more feminine), but now with him getting surgery that he needs to be healthy???

He must not be too devout {not devout at all if this is what he is claiming} because if he was he would know that he can have any surgery without having a blood transfusion. There are thousands of doctors in this world that perform surgeries without an ounce of blood given. If all Jehovah's Witnesses in this world refused a surgery because of their religion, they would all be dead, and not 3 million and counting. Besides, no doctor can promise you will live with a blood transfusion or live without it. The fact that it is being reported that it is the religion to blame for him not having a surgery is so untrue. People make their own decisions and obviously he doesnt want the surgery for whatever reason. Blame Prince for not wanting the surgery, he is a grown man. Thats all that should be said.

Several Jehovah Witnesses have surgery without blood, even heart surgery. Let's get all the facts about Jehovah Witnesses before we judge. It was his decisions.
