    Article - En anglais

    A patient's automony and right to determine his or her treatment is widely recognized in current ethnical theory and medical practice.

    However, conflicts between the desire to respect a competent patient's religious conviction not to be violated and society's interest in preserving life do arise.

    This paper examines two cases involving Jehovah's Withnesses who signed cards refusing blood transfusions and who were subsequently tranfused.
