SDA, Ted Wilson on Abortion. Are Abortions OK in Cases of Rape, Incest, or Threat of Mother’s Life?

Jamaican lawmakers are obligated to observe the sanctity of life as they mull over the hot-button issue of abortion, the most senior Seventh-day Adventist leader globally warned on Friday, just two days after the controversial debate boiled over in Parliament.

But while reaffirming his denomination’s general stance against abortion, Pastor Ted Wilson, president of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventist (SDA) Churches, conceded that terminations would be justified in mitigating circumstances.

“We do urge that lawmakers give strong adherence and cognisance to the sanctity of life. Most Adventists would be very supportive of the sanctity of life and not in favour of abortion unless the mother’s life was in danger or there was incest or rape involved, and that’s left to the individual to decide.”

Wilson, who is on an 11-day visit to Jamaica, addressed journalists yesterday afternoon shortly after his arrival at Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay, St James. He is here to take part in the church’s Mission Project 2019 for community outreach through health education. Printed in the Jamaica Gleaner
