“In 2008, Stevens published a book entitled “The Abortion Controversy” which provided an extensively researched apologetic for legal abortion. Although the book itself was controversial, it sparked much discussion as one of the first books that addressed the controversial issue openly from the perspective of a pro-choice Seventh-day Adventist. Stevens believed that the religious right could ultimately take advantage of anti-abortion legislation to threaten personal freedoms, and argued against the personhood of an unborn fetus. …”

My Comments: Stevens believed that the unborn child has no right to life until the moment of birth. He was influential in the adoption of abortion by the Adventist Church and the eventual drafting of the church’s “Guidelines on Abortion,” a document created by fallible humans with the express purpose to redefine the Sixth Commandment designed written on tablets of stone to protect human life.


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. The title is: “Murder in Paradise: A Serious Warning to the United States & the Adventist Church” Paperback: List Price: $22.49 $9.00 You Save: 60%
