Today’s quote ( British prime minister David Cameron ) | JWnews

“I just hope there will be a rapid outbreak of common sense so that the family can be reunited with this young boy and the best treatment can be given him either in the United Kingdom or elsewhere,“ he told a British radio station.

Why call for common sense now when cases involving Jehovah’s Witness children have always been handled in a “high-handed” way by various judicial systems worldwide ?

200,000 signatures is why !

Proton therapy significantly reduces radiation to the lungs and eliminates radiation to other organs.

There are numerous advantages of proton radiotherapy in medulloblastoma, unfortunately, however, there are only four centers in the country that currently provide the complex treatment setup for craniospinal proton treatment.

RUSSIA: “We still cry when we remember the burned books” | JWnews

Four Jehovah’s Witness brochures – “How to Achieve Happiness in Life”, “What Can People Hope For?”, “How to Develop a Close Relationship With God” and “What You Need to Know About God and His Meaning” – have been ruled “extremist” by two courts within a week of each other.

The discovery of banned materials by law enforcement agents may also be taken as evidence of wider “extremist” activity. In addition to individual criminal charges, as in Naberezhnyye Chelny, it can also lead to the enforced dissolution of a religious organisation, as will happen to the Jehovah’s Witness community in Samara if a June court ban is upheld by the Supreme Court in Moscow

Jehovah’s Witnesses themselves pointed out that they had not been invited to defend the texts in the initial City Court proceedings, and that the decision violated their freedom of religion and expression.
