Unborn 12

Spectrum Magazine has just published an article authored by a leading Adventist scholar in which he argued that we should not rush to modify our Guidelines on Abortion because the number of abortion is decreasing and “things are already moving in a positive direction.” I am including below the title of the article and a couple of statement from it.

“Abortion Rates and Ratios Continue Dropping in the United States”

“Abortion rates and ratios continue to decline in the United States. This is so despite the increased liberties the United States Supreme Court gave to doctors and women [in this order] in its 1973 ruling Roe v. Wade. …

We Seventh-day Adventists need not rush in revising our abortion guidelines because things are already moving in a positive direction. We can take all the time we need to do this well. Haste makes waste here, too. …”

This is like saying: “The incidence of rape and sexual abuse of children is going down. There is no need to do away with the number of exceptions under special circumstances that allow for rape and sexual abuse of children,” or “The number of car theft is diminishing; there is no need to worry about those few exception that allow for the stealing of vehicles.”

This type of faulty reasoning is coming out of our flagship Adventist universities and from highly respected writers, evangelists, and scholars. Unfortunately, I am prevented from saying a single word in defense of those who cannot speak on their own behalf. Because of my previous comments against abortion, I have been banned for life by Spectrum Magazine and some other Adventist venues.

This is why I am appealing to you. You can do what I am not allowed to accomplish. Please, share these concerns of mine with those on your mailing list, and post a comment or two on the pages of Spectrum Magazine on behalf of the unborn. The Lord will bless you for doing this!

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 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, 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” 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%
