Adventist Health
I received the following message this morning from a motivated pro-life Adventist who shares my concern about the way our church did compromise with evil on the issue of abortion. Here is what he said, followed by my response to his email:

“I am aware that another General Conference session is coming up … It has occurred to me that if a delegate would make a motion to change some of the wording in the Guidelines on Abortion, it might well pass. Even a small change like adding the word “physical” before the women’s health exception or eliminating that exception entirely might well tighten the screws on the loose abortion policy in some of our medical institutions. Honestly, I would like the Guidelines on Abortion to be completely re-written, but if the church isn’t ready to do that, they may be willing to at least reconsider the women’s health exception, which I think is the biggest loophole in the document. What do you think? Am I off base or on target with my suggestion? And could a delegate be persuaded to follow through with this?



About adventlife

I am a second generation Adventist who joined the church by baptism almost seven decades ago when the Adventist Church was still pro-life. I have a Ph. D. Degree in religion, and my dissertation was entitled "From Pro-life to Pro-choice: The Dramatic Shift in Seventh-day Adventists' Attitudes Toward Abortion." I recently published a book with said title which is available at You need to type my name in the Search blank space to access it. I believe that the Adventist Church should get out of the abortion business, especially out of the elective type of abortions. The church did compromise on this moral issue back in 1970 and many of its hospitals were allowed to profit from the killing of innocent unborn babies with impunity. The church needs to repent of this great moral sin and publicly admit that it was wrong for the "Remnant," Church which keeps God's Commandments, to profit from what the Bible and our Adventist pioneers labeled as murder. The Lord is merciful and forgiving, but public sins must be publicly repented of in order to secure God's forgiveness. P.S.: I recently published my second book dealing with abortion and the Adventist Church.

    As to getting a wording change through at the SDAGC I would pray for that. I believe it would start a firestorm but it really needs to happen.
