Do you have hard facts about SDA hospitals performing abortions? I would love to see them. By the way, if you want to be heard, you may have to post your interactions and efforts on social media sites because the choir apparently could care less. I understand that some women may have no other recourse but to terminate their pregnancies. However, the thought of doctors at religious hospitals performing abortions is incredible. Nic, you may have to change your strategies and include the general public in this absurdity by sharing facts about this matter with millions of people on social media sites.
Your sister in Christ, Yollie
Thanks for your suggestions. There is no lack of pro-life activity on the social media. There are hundreds of web sites targeting the general public with this issue, and I don’t need to compete with them. My goal is to reach the Adventist membership.
In the last two decades, I succeeded in getting two articles published by Adventists publishers: one by Adventist Today and the other by Advindicate. The Adventist Review accepted one of my articles for publication and paid me $ 50 for it; that was about a decade ago, and I am still waiting for them to publish it!
Regarding your question, I suggest that you hear it from the horse’s mouth. Recently the Adventist Health System was competing against Catholics for the construction of a new hospital in Maryland, and the Adventist argument was that we offer full services to women—including abortion—which Catholic hospitals do not do for religious reasons. Here is the evidence. This was in the news in many news organizations:

BTW, I have three web sites on Facebook, and I am participating in other social Adventist venues. Off and on I have been very active on The Adventist Club, The Adventist Today, and the Spectrum blogs, but they want me to keep my mouth shut.
You may be aware of this: Ellen White warned Adventists that we were in danger of becoming “a sister to Babylon.” She said this a century ago when the Adventist was still pro-life. Can you imagine what she would say today knowing that we have been offering abortions on demand since 1970? In one Adventist hospital room a fortune is spent to save the life of one baby, and in another babies are routinely killed to protect the lifestyle of the mother of the unborn baby.
The wife of a well known Adventist leader and author of many books told me that, when she was the secretary of a LLUMC physician, the doctor was performing abortion from morning till evening. Sorry to share with you these bad news, but I am praying for a revival and reformation regarding the respect for human life.
