Fewer children aborted, more children in need: how pro-lifers should respond

By Sarah Terzo – This is where Texas pro-lifers need to step up to the plate. There are women who will be having their babies who are no longer able to abort. This is a good thing. But we as pro-lifers need to be there for these women and children.

By George B. Gainer – This coming November 15, will make 25 years since I was asked to present "The Wisdom of Solomon? or The Politics of Pragmatism? The General Conference Abortion Decision 1970-71" to the gathered attendees at the Loma Linda University Conference on Abortion. The great majority of those present were shocked to learn that the General Conference of SDA's was operating with 2 different sets of guidelines on abortion. The 1970 Abortion Guidelines, which were more restrictive, were the set made available to our own Adventist clergy and laity, as well as the general public. The 1971 Interruption of Pregnancy Guidelines superceded the 1970 Guidelines and opened the door to abortion on demand for any reason in our hospitals (16 months before Roe v. Wade). The liberalized 1971 Guidelines were sent exclusively to our SDA Medical Institutions and never made known to our clergy and laity or the public.

Dr. Ben Carson asks pro-lifers to speak up and oppose abortion mentality

Carson warned of "forces in America that want to fundamentally change who we are without discussion. Said Carson, "They co-opt the media and get everybody to shut up so we don't know what is going on [so they can] change the underpinnings of the nation. We must be smart enough not to fall for it or one day we will wake up and find that we have a different nation."

American Values: The Individual Mandate vs. Social Darwinism

Many conservatives have eviscerated Obamacare, arguing that it would "raise premiums, unconstitutionally force people to buy health care, cause the deficit to skyrocket, slash Medicare spending to create a new entitlement, cause rationing, cause a significant number of doctors to leave the practice, and destroy the quality of American healthcare. Although I am a lifelong Republican, I must respectfully disagree with my conservative brethren on many of these points.
