Watchtower Victims Memorial Day

Tens of thousands of former and current Jehovah’s Witnesses have lost their lives or have sacrificed their family, their health, and their emotional well-being due to the harmful policies of this religion. Some have refused lifesaving medical treatment including blood transfusions and organ transplants, while others are completely shunned by their family for simply leaving the religion, including young ones.

Still others must endure horrific violence on a daily basis, as women are encouraged to stay with abusive men in the hopes of converting them, and child sex assault victims must produce a second witness to their attack before their accusations are heard. Rape victims may face severe shunning for “fornication,” and child abuse in the form of extreme discipline is often encouraged.

July 26, 2014, marked our inaugural Watchtower Victims Memorial Day. On this day, people from around the world left flowers and cards or other small memorials in honor of these victims at local Kingdom Halls of Jehovah’s Witnesses, and at public parks and other locations. These ones shared their pictures with us on Facebook and poured out their hearts about losing their families and loved ones to this harmful, hateful religion.
