“The abortion company has also been exposed for selling the body parts of aborted children. The expose’ videos catching Planned Parenthood officials selling the body parts of aborted babies have shocked the nation. Here is a list of all 14:

  • In the first video: Dr. Deborah Nucatola of Planned Parenthood commented on baby-crushing: “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”
  • In the second video: Planned Parenthood’s Dr. Mary Gatter joked, “I want a Lamborghini” as she negotiated the best price for baby parts.
  • In the third video: Holly O’Donnell, a former Stem Express employee who worked inside a Planned Parenthood clinic, detailed first-hand the unspeakable atrocities and how she fainted in horror over handling baby legs.
  • In the fourth video: Planned Parenthood’s Dr. Savita Ginde stated, “We don’t want to do just a flat-fee (per baby) of like, $200. A per-item thing works a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it.” She also laughed while looking at a plate of fetal kidneys that were “good to go.”
  • In the fifth video: Melissa Farrell of Planned Parenthood-Gulf Coast in Houston boasted of Planned Parenthood’s skill in obtaining “intact fetal cadavers” and how her “research” department “contributes so much to the bottom line of our organization here, you know we’re one of the largest affiliates, our Research Department is the largest in the United States.”
  • In the sixth video: Holly O’Donnell described technicians taking fetal parts without patient consent: “There were times when they would just take what they wanted. And these mothers don’t know. And there’s no way they would know.”
  • In the seventh and perhaps most disturbing video: Holly O’Donnell described the harvesting, or “procurement,” of organs from a nearly intact late-term fetus aborted at Planned Parenthood Mar Monte’s Alameda clinic in San Jose, CA. “‘You want to see something kind of cool,’” O’Donnell says her supervisor asked her. “And she just taps the heart, and it starts beating. And I’m sitting here and I’m looking at this fetus, and its heart is beating, and I don’t know what to think.”
  • In the eighth video: StemExpress CEO Cate Dyer admits Planned Parenthood sells “a lot of” fully intact aborted babies.
  • The ninth video: catches a Planned Parenthood medical director discussing how the abortion company sells fully intact aborted babies — including one who “just fell out” of the womb.
  • The 10th video: catches the nation’s biggest abortion business selling specific body parts — including the heart, eyes and “gonads” of unborn babies. The video also shows the shocking ways in which Planned Parenthood officials admit that they are breaking federal law by selling aborted baby body parts for profit.
  • Unreleased Videos: Unreleased videos from CMP show Deb Vanderhei of Planned Parenthood caught on tape talking about how Planned Parenthood abortion business affiliates may “want to increase revenue [from selling baby parts] but we can’t stop them…” Another video has a woman talking about the “financial incentives” of selling aborted baby body parts.
  • The 11th video: catches a Texas Planned Parenthood abortionist planning to sell the intact heads of aborted babies for research. Amna Dermish is caught on tape describing an illegal partial-birth abortion procedure to terminate living, late-term unborn babies which she hopes will yield intact fetal heads for brain harvesting.
  • The 12th video in the series shows new footage of Jennefer Russo, medical director at Planned Parenthood in Orange County, California, describing to undercover investigators how her abortion business tries to harvest intact aborted babies’ bodies for a local for-profit biotech company and changes the abortion procedure to do so.
  • The 13th video: exposes a Planned Parenthood medical director admitting that babies born alive after abortion are sometimes killed.
  • The 14th video: catches Planned Parenthood executives discussing gruesome abortion procedures and the sale of body parts from aborted babies for profit.

The Day Ministry Magazine Went Silent on Abortion.

A couple of decades ago the topic of abortion was the main issue in our Adventist media. The readers’ interest in this controversial issue was so great that on July 1988 David Newman wrote the following:

“Our articles on abortion have touched a sensitive nerve. We are receiving more email on this subject than on any other recently published article. The letters are running 10 to 1 in favor of the church adopting a stricter standard.”

Then suddenly, a few years following the publication of our current Adventist “Guidelines on Abortion,” which justifies the killing of innocent unborn children under a variety of circumstances, a long silence ensued on the pages of that periodical

A Deafening Silence. Following the adoption of our current abortion guidelines in 1992, our Adventist media lost interest in continuing the debate about abortion.

Many pro-life Adventist leaders left the church; some of them started their own independent ministries; and, believe it or not, some even went as far as joining the Catholic organization due to their strong pro-life position.

Our official “Ministry” magazine, which had been following this controversial debate for many years, suddenly went into a long hibernation and refused to publish anything that dealt with the issue.

If you have any doubts, I suggest you read the special report I wrote about this unusual event entitled The Day Ministry Magazine Went Silent on Abortion.”

Link:

https://adventlife.wordpress.com/2012/02/05/hello-world/

What happened? Why the sudden silence? Did the interest in abortion diminish, or was this the result of an intentional desire by the pro-choice/pro-abortion elite and the liberal leadership to silence the pro-life opposition whose opinions were running, according to Newman, 10 to 1 in favor of the church adopting a stricter standard? We cannot be 100 percent sure, but the timing of the comments on abortion blackout is rather suspicious!

Breaking the Adventist Silence on Abortion

This is why the publication of a book—“Spiritual Vigilantes”–authored by Danny Shelton, the current president of 3ABN, is so significant. It marks the departure from a conspiracy of silence on the abortion issue by Adventist leaders throughout the Adventist community.

How many sermons have you heard preached about this topic from Adventist pulpits in the last two decades? Perhaps I live in a different Adventist world, but I have heard none. Not only this, but I have written to the General Conference asking why we were silent on the abortion issue, and the answer I received was: “Read our Guidelines on Abortion.”

I expected an answer from the Book—the Bible. I was led to a document created by fallible human beings who replaced the four words from God’s Law—“you shall not murder”– with 1314 words designed by liberal Adventist theologians whose deliberate but hidden purpose was to nullify God’s Word.

Danny Shelton’s Book: “Spiritual Vigilantes”

Below is 3ABN’s introduction to Danny Shelton’s book, “Spiritual Vigilantes.” The book is free thanks to the generosity of many donors. People are donating small and large amounts of money. Some donations are in the $10,000, $20,000, and even $100,000 dollars. You can order 10 or thousands of copies, and you are asked to pay only for shipping expenses.

“We are living in a time of extreme spiritual warfare, and now is the time for Christians everywhere to take their stand for the Lord! Danny Shelton has just released his latest book, Spiritual Vigilantes, which shows how the government, as well as many Christian churches, has attempted to change God’s Ten Commandment law. Written in a “no holds barred” approach, you will discover answers as to why America is more divided by politics, race, and religion than any other time in history. ….”

A Circular Letter Signed by Danny Shelton

I received a letter signed by Danny Shelton, the president of 3ABN, advertising his new book “Spiritual Vigilantes” from which I would like to transcribe the following comments:

“The book deals with “spiritual vigilantes,” or people who try to change or negate God’s laws. It addresses the topic of same-sex marriage, abortion, and the change of the Sabbath to Sunday, because not much is heard in many of our churches about these, anymore. I’ve been amazed about how little opposition there is to same-sex marriage and abortion from many of our members.—and even leaders. As Seventh-day Adventist Christians, we teach the world that we cannot pick and choose which commandments we keep. God gave us Ten Commandments to follow, and the book of James tells us that if we break one commandment, we break them all!

After both Steve Wohlberg and I talked about abortion, a lady came to me an said she was almost ready to finance her daughter’s abortion, but that the Holy Spirit had convicted her not to. Well, she said, “I know of at least one life saved in this camp meeting.”

What Prompted Danny Shelton to Break the Adventist Silence on Abortion?

You may wonder what prompted Danny Shelton to break the Adventist silence on abortion? Of course, the main responsible for this miraculous event is the Holy Spirit. Nevertheless, you probably agree with me that many Adventist pro-lifers have been praying for this to happen.

This is true about my experience. I have been begging the Lord for this to take place for many decades now, and I have written letters both to the General Conference and to some of the individuals in charge of the 3ABN leadership. In answer to one of my letters to a former 3ABN CEO, I was assured that “everybody at 3ABN is pro-life.”

This was encouraging; nevertheless the same individual told me that he felt talking about abortion was not an integral part of 3ABN mission to the world. I felt sad to read this. I answered that 3ABN was duty bound to fully disclose our Adventist pro-abortion position on this issue.

Imagine the reaction of those joining the church the day they discovered that our church is not currently behind all Ten of God’s Commandments, and that we had replaced God’s prohibition found in Exodus 20 with a liberal attitude towards the killing of innocent human beings.

I sometimes wonder whether these letters of mine did have any effect on the conscience of our leaders. I may never know the answer to this query of mine this side of eternity. Nevertheless, I praise the Lord for Danny’s decision to address this subject. He has a huge megaphone, and the influence of his book may yield fruits for the salvation of many souls for God’s kingdom.

My Letter to the Former President of 3ABN

Pastor ……

3ABN

PO Box 220

West Frankfort

Il 62986, USA

Dear Elder …,

This morning I felt impressed to send a small donation your way. I wish I could send larger contributions, but my only income is Social Security.

What prompted me to do this is a couple of sermons I heard on 3ABN. The first one was by a very energetic pastor whose name I do not have. He traced the history of the reformers starting with Luther and ending with the Adventist movement. It was the best sermon I have ever heard on the topic. He ended with the assertion that the Adventist Church has the last message for the world because it represents the last warning found in the Bible to a sinful world.

I agree that the book of Revelation contains the last call to come out of Babylon and stop worshipping the Beast portrayed in said book. My question is: Is past behavior the best way of identifying said beast and its image? Does present behavior a better method perhaps of identifying both the beast and its image? It is true that centuries ago Rome persecuted the saints without mercy. Nevertheless, isn’t it also true that the Catholic Church is today one of the most valiant defenders of the right to life?

Contrast this with the behavior of the United States which is responsible for the genocide of 55 millions of innocent human beings in our country alone! And to think that our Adventist Church has been profiting from this morally abhorrent behavior since 1970—three years before abortion was legalized in the U.S. mainland! As I listened to this amazing portrayal of the work of Reformers, the following quotation by Ellen White came to my mind:

“We must as a people arouse and cleanse the camp of Israel. Licentiousness, unlawful intimacy, and unholy practices are coming in among us in a large degree; and ministers who are handling sacred things are guilty of sin in this respect. They are coveting their neighbors’ wives, and the seventh commandment is broken. We are in danger of becoming a sister to fallen Babylon, of allowing our churches to become corrupted, and filled with every foul spirit, a cage for every unclean and hateful bird; and will we be clear unless we make decided movements to cure the existing evil?” {21MR 380.1}

She issued this dire warning a century ago when our church was still pro-life. Can you imagine what she would say today knowing that our church has been profiting from the genocide of the most innocent members of the human race? 3ABN has been doing an incredible work in sharing with the world the Three Angels message of warning and hope, and I commend you for what you did for the unborn a couple of decades ago; nevertheless, I get the impression that the beastly behavior of the U.S. towards the unborn in which our church has been participating seems to be of no visible concern to 3ABN.

Health is not the main concern of 3ABN, I presume; nor music, or the Sabbath, yet your programming assigns a good portion of your television time to those side issues. How come the flagrant violation of one of God’s Commandment seemingly gets no equal portion of your time and effort?

This brings me to the second impressive sermon I heard on 3ABN last night. The preacher was Ron Halvorsen, and he spoke very eloquently about the Sabbath. My guess is that the Sabbath topic is given ample attention in your programming.

When I contrast this with your apparent silence on the violation of the Sixth Commandment, I get the impression that we seem to value time more than human life. Should not the right to life be as sacred as sacred time? Did not Jesus remind the Jewish leaders that the Sabbath was made for man instead of the reverse?

I will continue praying for 3ABN because it seems that it might be the last hope for a true revival in our Adventist community of faith.

May the good Lord continue to bless your ministry!

Bible 3

Pastor Ted Wilson, the president of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, has been reminding us that we are “the people of the Book.” If this is the case, how come we can’t get an answer dealing with abortion from “the Book?

I and other Adventist pro-lifers have written to the General Conference more than once asking for the reason our church decided to “lean towards abortion” back in 1970, and why we allowed our Adventist hospitals to offer elective abortions to their patients beginning on that date. The answer I and others received in response to our query was: “Read our Guidelines on Abortion.”

Is the document known as guidelines on abortion in the Bible? The answer is “NO.” It was created by Adventist theologians who were given the task of finding a justification for what the Law given by God to humanity forbids: “You shall not murder.”

Compare this answer with the response we get when someone asks: “Why do we keep the Sabbath as the sacred day of rest?” The answer we get is from the Book: “Read Exodus 20.”

Why can’t we get a similar response from “the Book” when we inquire for the reason our church abandoned the pro-life policy on human life and embraced the pro-choice/pro-abortion position on this life and death issue? Why can’t we get an answer from “the Book” on this question?

Do you see a problem here? Why can’t our church show some consistency when dealing with the right to life of the unborn? Why when asked about the Sabbath we are directed to the Bible, but when dealing with killing—something that the Book forbids—we are led to a tradition established in 1970 by mere fallible men?

I suggest that you watch a video created by a young evangelist named Andrew Michell, and then tell me what you think regarding this anomalous situation in the church:

Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZxMGxGw9oGY&feature=youtu.be

This morning I posted the comment listed below on the Adventist “Sabbath School Net” Internet site. Do you think that my posting will be published? I have serious doubts, because I have tried in the past to post similar comments and my comments were deleted.

This attitude towards the open discussion of this moral issue is surprising given the following statement found in said “Guidelines on Abortion”:

“Church members should be encouraged to participate in the ongoing consideration of their moral responsibilities with regard to abortion in light of the teaching of scripture.”

Link: https://www.adventist.org/en/information/official-statements/guidelines/article/go/0/abortion/

Is a silence conspiracy the proper way of encouraging Adventist to participate in the discussion of this moral issue? Have you ever attempted to raise this issue in any of the main Adventist media? I have been banned by several Adventist Internet sites for attempting to do this.

Currently there is only one Adventist site that allows the discussion of abortion: Fulcrum7. All the others refuse to publish articles on this topic.

Advindicate did publish one of my articles in the past, but when Kevin Paulson, an avowed pro-abortion Adventist pastor became a moderator of said site, he declared that abortion discussion would not be tolerated.

Adventist Today also published one of my articles some years ago, but this is history now.

Sabbath School Net : Here are the comments I posted on Sabbath School Net. As you can see. Said comments are awaiting moderation, but in fact I suspect that they are awaiting DELETION.

Nic Samojluk on July 7, 2017 at 6:20 am said:

Your comment is awaiting moderation.

“I want to address the following question by the author of today’s lesson: “What place (if any) is there for traditions in our faith? What warning might Paul’s experience offer for us today in regard to the whole question of tradition?”:

I wrote to the General Conference asking why our church allowed for elective abortions to take place in our own hospitals back in 1970, and why we still allow for the killing of innocent babies under a variety of circumstances.

The response I received was: “Read our Guidelines on Abortion.” I expected a different answer based on the Bible–not on Adventist traditions. We used to be known as the “people of the Book.”

When someone asks us why we worship on the seventh day of the week, we respond: “Read Exodus 20.” We lead people to the Word of God–not to our traditions. What happened to us? Should we not repent of this departure from Scripture?

An update: I recently checked the Sabbath School Net in order to verify what I suspected. My comments had disappeared from their site.

Grand Canyon.2

For a long time, there was a uniformitarian consensus that the Grand Canyon was about 6 million years old. However, the article posted below presents new data that is interpreted to favor an age of 17 million years.

Ref.: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/03/07/science/07canyon.html?ref=us

But an even more recent article claims that canyon formation began 70 million years BP:

Ref.: http://geology.com/articles/age-of-the-grand-canyon.shtm

So which age is correct? 6 million years, 17 million years, 70 million years, or something else?

Evidently the discrepancy between the opinions of scientists is getting ridiculously larger and larger, which confirms my suspicion that there might be something wrong with the dating techniques we use. Perhaps the time is ripe to consider some alternatives. If experts can’t accurately measure the age of dirt, how can we rely when they try to date life?

Life is more fragile than rocks! We need to insert some common sense into our scientific endeavors and be more humble in the way we present the scientific facts of nature. What we think we know about the past might be miles away from reality and truth.

I am not a scientist, but the Lord has granted me a small portion of common sense. This common sense tells me that if scientists attribute such a discrepant number to the age of the Grand Canyon, this suggests that something might be terribly wrong with their dating methods.

How can I rely on the results of their research if one tells me that the GC is six million years old, while others assert that the right number is seventeen, and a third one claims that the correct number is seventy million years?

A $100,000 Pro-life Challenge, by Andrew Michell

.

Would you risk loosing $100,000 on a challenge unless you were sure of your bet? Well, here is a man who is sure about what he is talking about.

Abortion 4

In the last couple of decades I have provided ample evidence that the Adventist Church is still behind the abortion of innocent unborn children. Unfortunately, many among us are not convinced. Most of these doubters rely on an assertion made by Pastor Ted Wilson, the president of the General Conference, back on February 2011 in the City of Redlands. This is why I would like to start by analyzing his statement on said occasion.

Ted Wilson’s “Down to almost zero” statement

Ted Wilson in RedlandsHere is a paragraph from Spectrum’s report of what Wilson said on said occasion. This statement of his was in response to a question I publicly asked. Following the meeting, several individuals lined up for a chance to talk to the president. I was one of them, and you can see me waiting for my turn. I am the person standing next to him on his right side

“A man, referencing articles in the Washington Post about Adventists and abortions, inquired about the article’s veracity and called on the president to speak out against abortion. Wilson answered using “sanctity of life” nomenclature, and noted that while Adventists have officially stated that abortions are sometimes permissible in cases of incest, rape or abuse, Adventists do not perform abortions on demand.”

Ref.: http://spectrummagazine.org/article/jared-wright/2011/02/23/ted-talks-wilsons-presidents-day-remarks

The words he used were slightly edited by the reporter. What I heard him saying I reconstructed to the best of my ability as: “Elective abortion in our Adventist hospitals are almost down to zero. Abortions are now performed inside abortion clinics.

The meaning of Wilson’s response

1.“Adventists have officially stated that abortions are sometimes permissible in cases of incest, rape or abuse”

This statement should convince any reasonable doubter that the Adventist leadership sees nothing wrong with allowing the physicians working in Adventist medical institutions to offer abortions when the pregnancy is the result of incest or rape

This is reminiscent of what we find in an Adventist document known as “Guidelines on Abortion.” Actually, said guidelines include two additional exceptions under which the killing of innocent unborn children is justifiable: physical malformations and when the pregnancy affects the mental health of the woman

This type of abortion policy would probably please Dianne Feinstein, the California Democratic U.S. Senator; Hillary Clinton, the former presidential candidate; and Cecile Richards, the Planned Parenthood CEO; all of them rabid defenders of abortion

Ref.: http://www.adventist.org/en/information/official-statements/guidelines/article/go/0/abortio

2. “Elective abortion in our Adventist hospitals are almost down to zero.

Is this assertion correct? The problem is that there are competing definitions for the “elective abortions” phrase: the pro-abortion and the pro-life one. The liberal definition excludes from elective abortions those connected with rape, incest, malformation, and the mental health exception.

3.Abortions are now performed inside abortion clinics.”

This affirmation by President Wilson might explain the mystery surrounding the abortions performed inside Adventist medical facilities. We know for a fact that our Shady Grove Hospital in Mayland does have such a clinic, and Adventist official representatives are on record admitting that abortions services are offered by Adventist medical facilities:

“Adventist HealthCare also runs a primary-care clinic for the uninsured in Shady Grove Adventist Hospital’s Germantown emergency center. The clinic now has a pre- and post-natal department for uninsured patients that provides family planning, according to Washington Adventist Hospital’s spokeswoman Lydia Parris.

Adventist HealthCare is owned by the Seventh Day Adventist Church, which has no religious policies governing health care. Adventist hospitals perform abortions and provide a full range of reproductive care, Parris said. [Emphasis supplied]

“We understand that these are decisions made between a woman and her physician, and we do not interfere with that individual decision,” she said.”

Ref.: http://ww2.gazette.net/stories/10142009/olnenew222839_32527.shtml

My personal conversation with Ted Wilson

At the conclusion of the Redlands, California, meeting with President Ted Wilson, I personally talked with him regarding the abortion issue. I told him that I was on the verge of publishing my second book on abortion, and I did not want to misrepresent the facts to the Adventist public.

I asked him whether he would be willing to provide me some statistics confirming his assertion that elective abortions inside Adventist hospitals are “almost down to zero.” He was very kind and told me to write to Dr. Allan R. Handysides General Conference office.

I did follow his directive and wrote a letter to Dr. Handysides. I waited a month or two and wrote to him again. In my desperation, I wrote directly to Pastor Wilson, hoping that he might be able to help; I got no response, and I followed this up with another letter, and as you can already guess I received zero answer from him or his secretary. [Remember, this took place back in 2011. This is 2017, and I am still waiting.]

My 2011 letter to Dr. Handysides at the General Conference

Here is the letter I wrote to Dr. Allan R. Handysides:

“Dr. Allan R. Handysides

I spoke with President Ted Wilson this morning following the meeting held at the Redlands Adventist Church and I shared with him my predicament, and he suggested that I contact you regarding my need.

I am about to publish a book about abortion as it relates to the Adventist Church and I need some current statistics about the elective abortions that are still provided by our medical institutions. The information I was able to secure from Adventist and other sources might be a little bit outdated, and I don’t want the potential readers of my book to be misinformed about this issue. Here is the summary of the information about elective abortions I was able to find so far:

Castle Memorial Hospital started offering elective abortions back in 1970, following the legalization of abortion by the State of Hawaii. [George Gainer, “Abortion: History of Adventist Guidelines” Ministry (Aug. 1991): 11-17; George Gainer, “The Wisdom of Solomon” Spectrum 19/4 (May 1989): 38-46.

Washington Adventist Hospital performed 1494 therapeutic and elective abortions in a seven year period. [George Gainer, “The Wisdom of Solomon” Spectrum 19/4 (May 1989): 38-46.]

A 1988 survey revealed that five of our Adventist hospitals were offering elective abortion services to their patients. [Gerald R. Winslow, “Abortion Policies in Adventist Hospitals” Spectrum 19/4 (May 1989)]

As you can see, these statistics and information are rather outdated. Can you provide me with current data? Am I to assume that our hospitals are still offering elective abortion services to their patients? Do you have access to current abortion statistics?

A lack of updated information will leave the impression that the situation has not changed. I have written to the Washington Adventist Hospital and to the Loma Linda University requesting current data but have received no response to my request.

Your brother in Christ,

Nic Samojluk

Abortion statistics from a non-Adventist, public repository source

As I patiently waited for a response from the General Conference office, I discovered providentially a neutral non-Adventist source of abortion statistics: the “Health Services Cost Review Commission,” [HSCRC] a State of Maryland agency charged with the responsibility of acting as a repository of hospital data and the services they provide to the public. From said source I was able to secure statistics for two Adventist hospitals, but I want to focus on one of them for which statistics are available from other sources.

Abortion Statistics for our Washington Adventist Hospital [WAH]

1992: 547
1993: 287 from January through June [half a year] which gives us an estimated 574/year
2006: 47
2007: 48
2008:36
2009: 27
2010: 29

Abortion statistics help unravel the mystery

The abortion statistics I secured from the HSCRC source tells an interesting story. Notice that between 1993 2006 there was a significant drop in the number of abortions performed at our Washington Adventist Hospital. The logical conclusion is that this drop is probably due to the fact that, as Wilson indicated, the provision of abortion shifted from our WAH to health clinics.

You must have noticed that the number of abortions did not drop to “almost zero,” as Wilson stated. How can we explain this? And bear in mind that these statistics represent the number of abortions performed at only one Adventist hospital [WAH] and that the number of Adventist hospitals in the North American Division are more than 60.

If we multiply those figures by the number of hospitals we own, the result would be way above the “almost zero” estimated by Pastor Wilson. Of course, some of our hospitals may have offered no abortion services to their patients. Nevertheless, listen to what a reliable source opined regarding this:

“The net result of all this led M. C. Midkiff to make the following declaration: “I believe if you do a bit of research you will find that the majority of Adventist hospitals permit abortion on request.”

Ref.: http://www.ministrymagazine.org/archive/1991/August/abortion-history-of-adventist-guidelines#at_pco=cft-1.0

How to understand Wilson’s enigmatic “almost zero” affirmation

If we want to unravel Wilson’s enigmatic “almost zero” affirmation, we are faced with several alternatives:

  1. He was misinformed.
  2. He misrepresented the actual facts.
  3. He used the most liberal definition of the “elective abortions” phrase described above.

My guess is that the most likely alternative explanation for his mysterious affirmation matches the third option listed above.

My reasonable conclusion

Based on the numerous lines of evidence submitted above and the open admission by an authorized spokesperson for the church who stated the following back in 2009, I conclude that at least some of our Adventist medical facilities are still killing innocent unborn children with impunity and without a word of condemnation by the General Conference leaders.

“Adventist HealthCare is owned by the Seventh Day Adventist Church, which has no religious policies governing health care. Adventist hospitals perform abortions and provide a full range of reproductive care, Parris said.”

Ref.: http://ww2.gazette.net/stories/10142009/olnenew222839_32527.shtml

The therapeutic abortions lame excuse

Some hard-to-convince Adventists who are determined to ignore the fact related to this life and death issue have suggested that possibly all or most of the abortions currently taking place in our Adventist medical facilities are of the “therapeutic” kind.

So what those therapeutic abortions include? They include abortions connected with rape, incest, malformations, and the women’s mental health exceptions. This understanding of therapeutic abortions fit nicely with the most liberal definition of “elective abortions.”

Does this explanation satisfy the concerns of pro-life Adventists? The answer is NO. In the case of abortion connected with rape, the guilty rapist is allowed to live, while the innocent unborn baby is mercilessly executed. This violates the biblical teaching found in Ezekiel 18:20.

New International Version
”The one who sins is the one who will die. The child will not share the guilt of the parent, nor will the parent share the guilt of the child.” [Ezekiel 18:20]

And the mental health abortion exception violates the same principle and God’s dictum found in Exodus 20 where we find the following commandment: “You shall not murder.” Murder is defined in my dictionary as the intentional killing of an innocent human being. The unborn is definitely a human being and is innocent of any wrongdoing.

Another lame excuse: “Those facts are outdated”

Holy Cross HospitalWhat happened with the Holy Cross vs Adventist Health controversy at Germantown? The permit to build another hospital was granted to the Holy Cross Catholic organization d the Adventist petition was denied.

This took place in 2011, merely six years ago. And Adventists were planning to appeal the decision.

“We’re hopeful, through the efforts of Adventist and many others in the community, that decision may be reversed or modified.”

In addition, I secured a more recent update confirming the fact that our Adventist Health System was still adhering to the “guidelines on abortion” approved by the General Conference Autumn Council back in 1992. I received said confirmation in 2016, less than a year ago.

Do you need more evidence than this? I don’t! Nevertheless, some recalcitrant pro-abortion Adventist are still not satisfied. To them I say: Get your own statistics and contrary facts. I have invested a couple of decades of my time and plenty of my scarce financial resources into this issue. I am satisfied with the result.

A New Pro-life Voice in Adventism, by Nic Samojluk

Trumpet 3

You might be aware that there is a new pro-life voice in Adventism—a powerful voice reminiscent of the voice of the Old Testament prophets and the reformers of the past—calling Adventists to prayer, fasting, repentance and reformation before the great Day of the Lord.

This voice was not born in academia, but rather in a U.S. jail cell thanks to amazing transforming power of the Holy Spirit. If you have any doubts of what I am saying, please take the time to watch the following video in which the author–Andrew Michell–a convert of the ministry of Doug Batchelor, tells the incredible and miraculous story of his conversion as the result of reading the Bible for the first time in his life while incarcerated in a solitary cell in a U.S. prison.

The unusual transformation of this former prison inmate was so great that the governor of the state granted him–over the objection of state attorneys–a full pardon for his crimes—an action so rare that even the prison officials had a hard time believing what had transpired that 2005 memorable day in the history of this man of God.

Since that day, Michell has told the story of his conversion to spellbound Adventist audiences on a large number of occasions in different countries of the world– including Southern California, U.S.A. Here is a link to one of those occasions:

When Michell joined the Adventist Church twelve years ago, he was sure that the church he was joining was pro-life. He was shocked when, many years later, he discovered to his great surprise and disappointment that this was not so. This experience prompted him to embrace his current pro-life mission of warning fellow Adventist of this morally anomalous situation.

Allow me to share with you one of his recent pro-life videos that made a great impact on my thinking. In it he describes an Adventist Church located at the Los Alamitos Horse Race Course, built with blood money generated from the killing of 250,000 innocent unborn children and the gambling business. Please, watch it and let me know what is your reaction to this alarming discovery he made and documented so well:

Adventists build church at horse racing track honoring notorious abortionist. Unbelievable!

.

My Comments: Jesus said that we cannot serve God and money at the same time, but it looks like we Adventist have found a way of doing this with apparent impunity. That Adventist church was built with blood money and money derived from gambling—a practice condemned by the General Conference

Judas returned the 30 pieces of silver to those who purchased the blood of Jesus Christ, should we Adventist follow his example and return all the financial contributions of this abortionist who deprived of life over 250,000 innocent unborn children

New International Version
“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” [Matthew 6:24]
