Promoting Life the Adventist Way, by Nic Samojluk

The SG meets with Secretary-General meeting with Elder Ted N.C. Wilson (President, Seventh-Day Adventist Church) and delegation (Including Ambassador Joseph Vernon Reed)
.
As I was reviewing the latest Adventist Review news, the following title caught my attention because as far as I remember our church has never shown interest in participating in ecumenical activities:

“Why Adventists Participate in UN and Ecumenical Meetings” [1]

I had barely finished reading the third paragraph and immersing myself in the fourth one when another big surprise hit me really hard:

“It is legitimate for all people of goodwill to unite to save lives, to protect lives, and to affirm the importance and sacredness of life. It is even urgent for all people to partner to make this world a better place for all human beings, contributing to better health, education, and humanitarian work in all dignity, freedom, justice, peace, and fraternity.

All the services and activities of the Seventh-day Adventist Church seek to promote life — and life in abundance. In the fulfillment of the church’s mission …”

I had to read the following statement several times to make sure I was not dreaming—it said:

“All the services and activities of the Seventh-day Adventist Church seek to promote life” —

My Question: Does this statement agree with the facts? Do all our services and activities seek to promote life? Do our pro-choice services and activities promote life?

Back in 1970 our church allowed our hospitals to offer elective abortions to their patients, and several of our hospitals took advantage of this opportunity to profit from the killing of innocent unborn children. [2] Did these services and activities promote life? How can killing promote life? In most cases, murder tends to incite additional killings.

Do our “Guidelines on Abortion” [3] promote life? They justify the killing of innocent unborn children under a variety of circumstances including when a perfectly formed unborn baby was fathered by a rapist, and when the pregnant woman’s mental health is affected by the unwanted pregnancy.

How can we claim then that “All the services and activities of the Seventh-day Adventist Church seek to promote life” In the best of cases, the editor who authored this article for the Adventist Review was asleep at his desk; and in the worse scenario, he was attempting to deceive his readers. Either way, it looks bad!
