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]

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 http://lulu.com. 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. The title is: “Murder in Paradise: A Serious Warning to the United States & the Adventist Church” http://www.lulu.com/shop/search.ep?type=Print+Products&keyWords=Samojluk+murder+in+paradise&x=5&y=10&sitesearch=lulu.com&q= Paperback: List Price: $22.49 $9.00 You Save: 60%

  2. Doug Yowell says:

    I agree. Was anyone about to die before deciding to kill the baby?
