This is about a pregnant women's rights about denying blood transfusion. Can she do it?

A) She cannot refuse the transfusion if it is necessary to preserve the life of fetus

B) Courts have held that a pregnant woman has the right to refuse care like blood transfusion even if it places her unborn child at risk.

Can somebody throw some light on this issue? Thanks in advance
