“The World Health Organization and the Seventh-day Adventist Church are kicking off an unprecedented global partnership aimed at reducing infant and maternal mortality rates.
This is the first time that the WHO, the public health agency of the United Nations, has partnered with a faith-based organization on a global scale …”
“3ABN’s board of directors elected Shelton as president and CEO last week, filling a role vacated by evangelist Jim Gilley, 74, who announced his retirement on July 20. Gilley nominated Shelton as his replacement, and the board unanimously agreed. …
Shelton, a gospel-singing carpenter, founded 3ABN in 1984 after growing frustrated with unbiblical teachings popularized on evangelical television shows. 3ABN has since grown to broadcast 24 hours a day through a television and radio satellite network that circles the globe and includes production centers in Australia, New Guinea, the Philippines, Russia, and the United States.
“Someone may ask: “Why have you replaced SDA Forum and Let’s Focus on Life with Advent Life and Advent Life News? The reason is more than one. Technology is constantly advancing, and what seemed great a decade ago may not be as attractive and useful as what is available today. Since we are giving our web presence a new face, we might as well update and sharpen our mission as well.
As the name suggests, the emphasis of our now old site was human life; the focus of the new web page is the glory of God, the creator of heaven and earth and of human life. We believe that, in spite of the moral fall of humanity, the glory of God is still revealed in the things he created: …”
“But how does the abortion business obtain the body parts of aborted babies to sell to biotech firms who eventually sell them to research firms and universities?
It turns out that Planned Parenthood shoots unborn babies with through the heart with poison to kill them — preserving their bodies enough to use the body for research down the road. The abortion giant does this by altering the now-banned partial-birth abortion technique. …”
“The Center For Medical Progress has released a fourth undercover video showing Planned Parenthood Vice President of the Rocky Mountains and Medical Director Dr. Savita Ginde discussing how babies that are “delivered before procedure,” aka born alive, are used to harvest “intact” organs. …”
My Comment: This is infanticide; the murder of babies that are born alive whose vital organs are harvested and sold to the highest bidder.
“The three broadcast networks, ABC, NBC and CBS censored the third video released Tuesday by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) exposing Planned Parenthood’s practice of harvesting aborted baby parts — censored it at Planned Parenthood’s urging. But the news shows did find more than 14 minutes for a more important story: the “outrage” over the shooting of Cecil, a famed African lion, by an American dentist. …”
“Believe it or not, but some Adventist leaders are beginning to break the silence on abortion, a silence that began some years following the adoption of a document entitled “Guidelines on Abortion” that sanctioned the killing of innocent unborn children in our Adventist hospitals under a variety of circumstances including when the unwanted pregnancy was the result of rape, incest, when there was evidence of malformation in the developing child, and even when pregnancy affected the mental health of the pregnant woman.
Between 1971 and 1996 I counted 95 Readers’ comments and articles dealing with abortion in the pages of our “Ministry” magazine. The readers’ interest in this controversial issue was so great that on July 1988 David Newman wrote the following: …”
“I discovered a long time ago that some church employees believe that their most sacred duty is to protect the good name of the church regardless of what the truth is. There are exceptions to this rule, especially when we are dealing with minor issues like diet, for example.
I was able to verify this the other day as I studied the Sabbath School Lesson online. The topic was the amazing example of fidelity exhibited by Daniel the prophet. He was tested over and over again on what seemed minor issues like partaking of the food provided for him and his companions by the King of Babylon, or praying with his windows opened towards the City of Jerusalem. …”
“The body parts of dead people are harvested every day, but abortion victims are methodically slaughtered like human livestock. Decent human beings instinctively notice that everything about abortion is demonic. It didn’t take an abortion provider to become a commercial body parts farm to figure this out.
On the other hand, what is evil about allowing ordinary people to sell their own organs? …”
“The latest video released by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) shows a Planned Parenthood technician sorting through “tissue” collected after a first trimester abortion. As LifeNews previously reported, this is CMP’s third undercover video showing the abortion company negotiating the sale of aborted babies’ body parts with actors posing as buyers from a human biologics company. …”

“I received an encouraging email communication from a highly motivated Adventist po-lifer who suggested that we need a grassroots effort in order to convince our SDA leadership to take our medical institutions out of the abortion business. Here is a portion of my response:
I agree with you that we need to start at the grassroots level, and we need the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. If the Lord does not bless our efforts, we will be working in vain. I did notice this illustrated in my own backyard. Our city has restricted the watering of our lawn to two days a week, and my backyard was turning brown, but when it rained, the grass revived. …”
“Forty percent of campers come from non-Adventist backgrounds, which Yeagley said gives the camp tremendous outreach potential. …
One of the children, a young girl with a Taoist background, heard about Jesus for the very first time a few days ago. She was amazed to learn about a God that loved her personally. …
“Will God be angry with me because I am a Taoist?” she asked her camp counselor. …”
Sunset Lake Camp, acquired by the Adventist Church in 1957, is situated on 385 acres (156 hectares) of forested land with trails for horseback riding and nature study and has a 10.5-acre (4-hectare) lake for water sports. …”
“As a child growing up in North Korea, Hyeonseo Lee believed that her country was the best on the planet.
She believed that Americans were evil, South Koreans were starving to death and North Koreans were better off than everybody else. Every North Korean believes this.
She discusses this at length in her new novel, “The Girl With Seven Names: A North Korean Defector’s Story,” and spoke with The Daily Signal about her experiences as well. …”
I want to share with you my response to a list of pro-life questions I received from a motivated Adventist pro-lifer that is eager to share this information with others. I will skip the queries and go directly to my answers:
There is a chance that ParkRidge does not offer elective abortions to their patients. Not all Adventist hospitals participated in the offering of abortion services. Here is a list of institutions that
“Castle Medical Center, Hadley Memorial Hospital, Hanford Community Hospital, Loma Linda University Medical Center, Porter Memorial Hospital, Portland Adventist Medical Center, Shady Grove Adventist Hospital, Shawnee Mission Medical Center, Sierra Vista Hospital, Walla Walla GeneralHospital, Washington Adventist Hospital, and White Memorial Medical Center.”
