Jerry Brown - Is he pro-life now?

By Editorial Staff
Published July 1, 1988

by Leslie Bond

Former California Gov. Edmund G. “Jerry” Brown Jr., known to pro-lifers for his pro-abortion policies during his past political career, has now stated that he sees “the killing of the unborn as crazy.”

Brown indicated his change of heart in a telephone interview with the National Catholic News Service, February 10. The former governor, who sought the Democratic presidential nomination in 1972 and 1980, had just returned from a four week visit to India where he spent much of his time volunteering in pro-life champion Mother Teresa’s Home for Dying Destitutes in Calcutta.

Brown said his work with the dying “gave me a different perspective on the whole question of abortion.” He said he could not support abortion after spending time “confronting and protecting the lives of the suffering with not as high a quality of life as a three-month fetus that is healthy and has potential,” NC News Service reported.

The fact that “this country and Europe see the need to kill so many unborn does not seem to be justifie,” Brown said. He added, “It’s just that we’ve organized society to be anti-life.”

Brown said he was impressed by the great respect Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity show for the dead and dying. The sisters “showed more respect for someone just off the streets than some people with substantial means get in developed countries,” he said, adding, “It would be great to take the attitude that created that environment and spread it around the world.”

Brown, who served as governor of California from 1975 to 1982, halted his political career in 1982 when he lost a bid for the U.S. Senate to Sen. Pete Wilson. He plans to re-enter the political arena, although not immediately, he said.

After reading about Jerry Brown being pro-life,he has my vote. I would strongly suggest getting a commercial (if not already done) attesting to this very important issue among the Christian community. I have always voted Republican, but I will now vote for Jerry Brown,as I’m sure many Republicans will do the same, when made aware of this. God bless Jerry Brown,our next Governor!

Jerry Brown is not pro-life. If he were, NOW (Nat’l Organization for Women) wouldn’t be supporting him. Take a look here:

Jerry Brown’s miraculous change of heart has seemed to happen just when he needs to be seen as a conservative and to get conservative votes. How remarkable! Don’t be fooled, he doesn’t even disclose this new belief on his own website.

The website below will clarify my last post; the National Organization for Women are endorsing Jerry Brown for Gov. for supporting women’s rights including his support of abortion. This article is from Oct. 2010.

The Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of ChristThe Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of Christ (DVD)

Who is the Real Jesus?

Ever since the dawn of modern rationalism, skeptics have sought to use textual criticism, archeology and historical reconstructions to uncover the “historical Jesus” — a wise teacher who said many wonderful things, but fulfilled no prophecies, performed no miracles and certainly did not rise from the dead in triumph over sin.

Over the past 100 years, however, startling discoveries in biblical archeology and scholarship have all but vanquished the faulty assumptions of these doubting modernists. Regrettably, these discoveries have often been ignored by the skeptics as well as by the popular media. As a result, the liberal view still holds sway in universities and impacts the culture and even much of the church.

The Real Jesus explodes the myths of these critics and the movies, books and television programs that have popularized their views. Presented in ten parts — perfect for individual, family and classroom study — viewers will be challenged to go deeper in their knowledge of Christ in order to be able to defend their faith and present the truth to a skeptical modern world – that the Jesus of the Gospels is the Jesus of history — “the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). He is the real Jesus.

Speakers include: George Grant, Ted Baehr, Stephen Mansfield, Raymond Ortlund, Phil Kayser, David Lutzweiler, Jay Grimstead, J.P. Holding, and Eric Holmberg.

Ten parts, over two hours of instruction!

Running Time: 130 minutes

The Beast of Revelation IdentifiedThe Beast of Revelation: Identified (DVD)

Who is the dreaded beast of Revelation?

Now at last, a plausible candidate for this personification of evil incarnate has been identified (or re-identified). Ken Gentry’s insightful analysis of scripture and history is likely to revolutionize your understanding of the book of Revelation — and even more importantly — amplify and energize your entire Christian worldview!

Historical footage and other graphics are used to illustrate the lecture Dr. Gentry presented at the 1999 Ligonier Conference in Orlando, Florida. It is followed by a one-hour question and answer session addressing the key concerns and objections typically raised in response to his position. This presentation also features an introduction that touches on not only the confusion and controversy surrounding this issue — but just why it may well be one of the most significant issues facing the Church today.

Ideal for group meetings, personal Bible study — for anyone who wants to understand the historical context of John’s famous letter “… to the seven churches which are in Asia.” (Revelation 1:4)

The Four Keys to the Millennium (Book)

Foundations in Biblical Eschatology

By Jay Rogers, Larry Waugh, Rodney Stortz, Joseph Meiring. High quality paperback, 167 pages.

All Christians believe that their great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will one day return. Although we cannot know the exact time of His return, what exactly did Jesus mean when he spoke of the signs of His coming (Mat. 24)? How are we to interpret the prophecies in Isaiah regarding the time when “the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:19)? Should we expect a time of great tribulation and apostasy or revival and reformation before the Lord returns? Is the devil bound now, and are the saints reigning with Christ? Did you know that there are four hermeneutical approaches to the book of Daniel and Revelation?

These and many more questions are dealt with by four authors as they present the four views on the millennium. Each view is then critiqued by the other three authors.
