“Most Adventists are comfortably unaware of the brewing abortion debate within the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Most are unaware that the church has been silently pro-abortion since the 1970s and made that position official in a policy statement voted by the General Conference Executive Committee in 1992 (the “Policy”). …

Since the policy only provides justifications to kill the unborn, and never suggests that a mother may have a duty to sacrifice herself in any way for her unborn child, one has to assume that it is the unborn who are being called to sacrifice themselves in devotion to God. In the same way, we have to conclude that the “weak, defenseless, and the oppressed” God especially cares about are not the unborn, but rather, pregnant women. …

The Policy does the same thing. It repeatedly talks about grace, freedom and personal accountability, not as calls to faithfulness, but as calls for exemption from God’s law. We are told that to condone sin is merciful, whereas to uphold God’s law is an infringement of personal freedom. …”


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 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, that claims to keep 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%
