A member of the Jehovah's Witness recently let his wife die as he would not permit the hospital to give a blood transfusion Right or wrong?

This happened recently and brought up all sorts of ethical and legal questions. How do you feel? Should this be allowed to happen? How could we justify a child dying because of religious beliefs?
