It is true, SDA hospitals perform elective abortions...
I know....it is hard to believe, but sadly, it is true....abortions, ELECTIVE abortions, are done in Seventh Day Adventists hospitals, and this has been going on since the 70's! If I had not heard it with my own ears, I would have had a really hard time believing it...this is how we found out.
We were at Southern Missionary College (called Southern College, today), and it was a Sabbath afternoon, 1981. We were told that the General Conference President - Neil Wilson, (the father of the current GC President - Ted Wilson) was going to be speaking in the afternoon at the College Church, and holding a Question & Answer forum afterwards. We had never heard him speak, so we decided to attend.
After he spoke, someone from the audience raised their hand and asked the question, "Why do our Seventh Day Adventist hospitals perform abortions?" Al and I looked at each other in shock and disbelief, we though, "Surely, OUR church does not perform abortions!" But....Neil Wilson confirmed that the Church hospitals do perform abortions and went on to give the reason why.... He said that if the Church hospitals did not perform abortions, the women would just go to some other hospitals and get them."
We couldn't believe our ears. That was in 1981. It has been 30 years since that time, and our hospitals are still performing abortions. But, as we talk to members of the Church, we are finding out that most members do not know this. The Church has successfully pushed this under the rug, and the members are in the dark.
This causes some pretty important questions to surface:
- Is the Sabbath commandment, the 4th commandment, somehow more important than the 6th commandment?
- Is it possible for today's Seventh Day Adventist Church to be God's peculiar Church, while their hospitals are performing abortions?
- If there is really a "Revival & Reformation" taking place within the denomination, wouldn't the Church hospitals stop doing abortions?
- What is the best way to get the Church to change their stand and their practice?
So, the purpose of this part of the website is for documentation of the fact that the SDA Churchhospitals are performing abortions and for posting articles that others have written protesting abortion. Hopefully, as more and more people find out about it, they will raise their voices and demand a change. (Even though, I must say, if the Church changes its stand and its practice, because it is "forced" to, is that the kind of obedience that God wants from His Church - "forced" obedience? I don't think so....)
We have a friend who have researched this subject and has collected alot of documentation which he has shared with us, and we will upload the material here on our site. Some of the links at the bottom of this page are from Doug, - Thank you, Doug Yowell, and some we collected ourselves.
