Richard Hart, the president of the Loma Linda University Health [LLUH] made some surprising claims and comments at the 2019 Autumn Council regarding the abortion issue. One of those claims was that no elective abortion have ever taken place at LLUH and that killing the unborn is justified if the physician believes that the baby will eventually die. Is this factual and Biblical?

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.

    Dr. Hart plays word games with “elective”. In fact, when LLU elects to abort the baby of a 9 year old ( alleged) rape victm they don’t call it “elective”. Nor when they recommend and then elect to abort babies with ”possible” birth anomolies they don’t call it ”elective” even if the baby would have been born normal. And notice that Dr. Hart openly admits that his elective definition does not include killing babies diagonosed with Down’s Syndrome!! Like all pro-choicers LLU has it’s own dictionary which often differs in meaning from the actual use of the English language. Dr. Hart is either ignorant of real LLU practices or he’s intentionally trying to pull the wool over the eyes of the willingly ignorant.

      He is not ignorant! The evidence seems to suggest that his objective is to deceive the Adventist believers into the erroneous idea that our Adventist Church is prolife, which is not true.

      He and others succeeded in convincing those who voted for the new Statement on Abortion that was approved on October 16, 2019. What troubles me the most is the fact that Mark Finley became the victim of this deception.
