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.

Your comments are welcome!

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.

Why Creeds and Confessions? (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 219 pages

Foundations in Biblical Orthodoxy

Driving down a country road sometime, you might see a church with a sign proudly proclaiming: “No book but the Bible — No creed but Christ.” The problem with this statement is that the word creed (from the Latin: credo) simply means “belief.” All Christians have beliefs, regardless of whether they are written.

Yet a single book containing the actual texts of the most important creeds of the early Church will not often be found. Out of the multitude of works on the evangelical Christian book market today, those dealing with the creeds of the Church are scarce.

Why Creeds and Confessions? provides a foundation of biblical orthodoxy as a defense against the false and truly heretical doctrines advanced by the spirit of this age.

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.

The Abortion Matrix: Defeating Child Sacrifice and the Culture of Death (DVD)

Download the free Study Guide!

Is there a connection between pagan religion and the abortion industry?

This powerful presentation traces the biblical roots of child sacrifice and then delves into the social, political and cultural fall-out that this sin against God and crime against humanity has produced in our beleaguered society.

Conceived as a sequel and update to the 1988 classic, The Massacre of Innocence, the new title, The Abortion Matrix, is entirely fitting. It not only references abortion’s specific target – the sacred matrix where human beings are formed in the womb in the very image of God, but it also implies the existence of a conspiracy, a matrix of seemingly disparate forces that are driving this holocaust.

The occult activity surrounding the abortion industry is exposed with numerous examples. But are these just aberrations, bizarre yet anomalous examples of abortionists who just happen to have ties to modern day witchcraft? Or is this representative of something deeper, more sinister and even endemic to the entire abortion movement?

As the allusion to the film of over a decade ago suggests, the viewer may learn that things are not always as they appear to be. The Abortion Matrix reveals the reality of child-killing and strikes the proper moral chord to move hearts to fulfill the biblical responsibility to rescue those unjustly sentenced to death and to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves (Proverbs 24:11,12; 31:8,9).

Speakers include: George Grant, Peter Hammond, RC Sproul Jr., Paul Jehle, Lou Engle, Rusty Thomas, Flip Benham, Janet Porter and many more.

Dr. Francis Schaeffer - A Christian Manifesto (DVD)

That Swiss Hermit Strikes Again!

Dr. Schaeffer, who was one of the most influential Christian thinkers in the twentieth century, shows that secular humanism has displaced the Judeo-Christian consensus that once defined our nation’s moral boundaries. Law, education, and medicine have all been reshaped for the worse as a consequence. America’s dominant worldview changed, Schaeffer charges, when Christians weren’t looking.

Schaeffer lists two reasons for evangelical indifference: a false concept of spirituality and fear. He calls on believers to stand against the tyranny and moral chaos that come when humanism reigns-and warns that believers may, at some point, be forced to make the hard choice between obeying God or Caesar. A Christian Manifesto is a thought-provoking and bracing Christian analysis of American culture and the obligation Christians have to engage the culture with the claims of Christ.
