All hospitals perform abortions. That dosen't mean that the church promotes the decison of the hospital administrators.

>At the end,a class of about 35 students was reduced to 15 members where arguments for abortion were that due to sin,if a woman conceives out of incest,rape or deformity,one can make the choice of aborting.

Against this view is that a child conceived is a creation of God and thus,one cannot kill as it is against God's will-commandments.

>Though the Bible does not address some issues directly,we learn from the same bible of Gods will.We also learn morals from the society of what is good and bad while God speaks to us diretly in situations that have difficult choices.

Dear Donavon and Sal,

SDA hospitals do perform abortions and while they would like you tho think it is only for "special cases", it is elective and on demand and all the way up to the delivery date.  The church would have you to believe it is for freedom of choice, but you can not exercise your freedom of choice to eat a ham sandwich in the cafeteria as pork is not permitted in the hospitals.  It is I'm afraid about money that abortions are provided.  

Very sorry to say, being an Adventist myself.

Sincerely, Kelly

I am privileged to be able to offer an alternative insight into the complicated world of Seventh-Day Adventists (SDA) theology. I will rely heavily on the Bible, but will also consider history and use logic in exposing deficiencies in SDA teachings. I would ask anyone who is considering becoming a SDA or if you are already in the SDA church, but are searching for the truth, to please allow me to offer a different explanation for the claims of the SDA. Remember : "The truth will set you free" (John 8:32). I can answer your questions pertaining to the beliefs and history of the SDA. I am not able to answer questions concerning spirituality or church discipline.


I have extensively studied the theology of the Seventh-Day Adventists (SDA) for a number of years. I have many books and tape sets produced by experts in this field of study. I have debated current members of the SDA church. I have a great desire to help these people see the truth.
