“On October 23, New York Times Magazine posed the following question to its audience on Twitter: “If you could go back and kill Hitler as a baby, would you do it?”

The publication then urged users to respond to the question, accompanying the tweet with an infographic showing that 43 percent of its readers would kill baby Hitler, 30 percent would not, and 28 percent were unsure.

Republican presidential hopeful, Jeb Bush, gained media attention when he responded to the question with a resounding: “Hell yeah! I would.” Many, however, would agree with Bush, who considers himself to be “the most pro-life governor in modern times.” …”

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%

    The question itself is just plain stupid. It requires very little thought to answer in an intelligent and revealing ( of the shallowness of the question) way. If I were asked that question in public by a reporter I would ask them if they would speak to me privately without their recorder on. I would explain that I didn’t want to show up the questioner and make them look foolish in front of the rest of the onlooking world. The candidates who answered the question did so without thinking because they were focused on the wrong premise and in doing so gave the question validity regarding abortion. Starting with the premise “: “If you could go back…” the question could be answered in a number of varying ways that revealed the nature of it’s thoughtlessness. Here’s one simple answer; “If I could go back why would I have to stop at Hitler’s childhood, why not simply tie his mother’s tubes?” There are a billion answers that belie the typical and myopic mindset that created the question in the first place. But then it reveals the depth of the “progressive” mindset.
