The True Nature of Therapeutic abortions, by Nic Smojluk

Abortion is not healing
A friend of mine recently contacted the General Conference and was informed that, according to Dan Jackson, the president of the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists, “For AHS and Maryland out of perhaps 47,000 births only 100 abortions were done and none elective,” which meant that those 100 abortions were of the therapeutic kind. This prompted me to look for the definition of the word “therapeutic” and this is what I discovered:

“Treatment intended to cure or alleviate an illness or injury …”medical treatment of disease,” from Modern Latin therapia, from Greek therapeia “curing, healing,” from therapeuein “to cure,” [http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/therapy]

My problem: I do not find the term killing in said definition and abortion is not a disease. How can we equate the destruction of human life with therapy and healing? I conclude that the so called “therapeutic abortion” is a terrible misnomer; it is definitely deceptive; and should not be used by a church dedicated to the proclamation of truth. The Bible says: “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.” [Is.5:20]

Three Sisters Escaping Danger

Three sisters
“The young sisters, already having suffered through neglect and abuse, now have a loving and heroic Aunt who has sacrificed her career to raise them into adulthood. But they still need our help right now.

The attached photo shows the three sisters experiencing an ocean and a beach for the very first time in their lives. With the help of many people from around the world, we were able to remove them from the dangers they faced in Nebraska. …”

Study Proves Abortion is More Dangerous Than Childbirth

abortiondangerous
“Pro-abortion activists have long tried to claim that abortion is safer than childbirth. For years they’ve touted manipulated numbers, trying in vain to bolster this myth. We’ve always known those statistics were bogus, and a study by Dr. Priscilla Coleman and Dr. David Reardon reveals abortion is much more dangerous to women than giving birth. And the results are sadly even more devastating to women’s health than even I had anticipated. …”

Remembering William A. Loveless

Bill Loveless
“Success is never final, failure is rarely fatal, and courage is always necessary.” Those are three lessons that I learned from a William Loveless’ sermon that he preached at the Loma Linda University Church in the 1980s. Twenty years before that, he was preaching memorable sermons at Sligo SDA Church, my home church as a teenager. I still remember his series there on the Biblical character David. He had a compelling way of combining Biblical truth with contemporary life. …”

My comment: I will miss his saxophone performances!

Walter Rea Dies: Famous for Research on Ellen White

Walter Rea
“Pastor Walter Rea passed away Sabbath morning, August 30, at the age of 92. The memorial service was held Sabbath, September 13, in Patterson, California, a small town near Modesto in the Central Valley farming region where he spent the last years of his life as a grower of cherries, apricots, walnuts and almonds.

Rea is well known for a book he wrote in which he accused Ellen G. White of plagiarism despite her historic role as one of the cofounders of the Adventist movement believed by most of her cohort of early Adventists to exercise the spiritual gift of prophet. His study launched significant research which has changed the understanding of White’s writings among Adventists. …”

Losing the Abortion Debate, Planned Parenthood Abandons the Term “Pro-Choice”

prochoice2
“And a recent shift in rhetoric hints that abortion advocates may be moving in this direction. Writing in The New York Times, Jackie Calmes writes that the days of “pro-choice,” as a label, are numbered, because “the term pro-choice. . . does not reflect the range of women’s health and economic issues now being debated. Nor…does it speak to a new generation of women.” …

It turns out that the “pro-life” label, which focuses attention on the humanity of the unborn, has convinced a majority of Americans to identify themselves as pro-life. … And the nation’s number one provider of abortions, Planned Parenthood, is leading this retrenchment. …”
