“The so-called “abortion” statement was circulated and discussed early in the session but finally voted on during Wednesday’s agenda, the final day. Adventist hospitals and their corresponding ethics committees have been seeking to follow church guidelines accepted in 1992. While the new statement is meant to represent a biblically foundational stance of the church regarding the sanctity of life, it is not yet designed to specifically inform Adventist health care professionals and institutions. What those “extremes” are will be further determined by additional study and consultation with Adventist pastors, women and health care leaders. Current figures from Adventist health systems show that life is indeed valued there and, contrary to what some members have feared, abortions are exceedingly rare.”

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%
