detour
“While Evangelical and Catholic voters strove with unusual energy to mobilize pro-life conservatives to exercise their civic duty, most Adventist voters used their energies to occupy their time with minor issues like women’s ordination, forgetting that the life of millions of unborn children hung on the balance. How can we explain this Adventist apathy towards the plight of the unborn? The answer lies in what took place in 1970— three years before the legalization of abortion in the U.S. mainland. That year, our Adventist leadership allowed our Adventist hospitals to profit from abortions on demand.

When faced with the potential loss of revenue, when the State of Hawaii legalized the practice of abortion, our North American Division president publicly announced that our church was leaning toward abortion because “we realize we are confronted by big problems of hunger and overpopulation. …”

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%
