What is the importance of having a negative blood group?

What is the importance of having a negative blood group?

Transfusions: The major importance of being Rh negative (Rh-) is that you could have a severe, potentially life-threatening or even fatal reaction if you received blood from an Rh positive (Rh+) individual.
