Abortion 6

Is killing the child of a rapist right or wrong?

The Adventist Church teaches that this is morally justifiable due to one of the special circumstances faced by women:

“Women, at times however, may face exceptional circumstances that present serious moral or medical dilemmas, such as significant threats to the pregnant woman’s life, serious jeopardy to her health, severe congenital defects carefully diagnosed in the fetus, and pregnancy resulting from rape or incest …” [Emphasis supplied]

Ref.: https://www.adventist.org/en/information/official-statements/guidelines/article/go/-/abortion/

Does the Bible agree? Not so! Look at what Scripture teaches:

“The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin.” [Emphasis supplied]

Ref.: Deuteronomy 24:16.

The question is: Why is our church teaching what the Bible condemns? Because back in 1970 the church decided to profit from the killing of innocent unborn children and created a set of guidelines on abortion in opposition to God’s Word. This moral anomaly resulted in the deaths of thousands of innocent unborn children in our medical facilities.

Will our Adventist Church undo this terrible moral detour? We will soon find out! President Ted Wilson publicly stated that a specially created study group would do what is needed to align our guidelines with the Bible.

The work of this study group will be submitted to the October 10-16 General Conference Executive Committee, which if approved, will in turn be voted by the 2020 GC Worldwide Session. Let’s pray for the Holy Spirit to guide the minds and hearts of those in charge of such a monumental task.

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%
