“Christian Abortion Doctor” Says He “Does the Lord’s Work”

LIFENEWS — Abortion, in and of itself, is a moral horror. But for abortion activists to claim the name of Jesus Christ in order to justify killing unborn children, that crosses over into new territory. I’m not talking about the moral gymnastics of equivocation employed by so many Christian progressives to justify abortion in extreme cases, as wrong and harmful as that is. I’m talking about Christians actually celebrating and promoting abortion as God’s work. For instance, those mainline Protestant priests and pastors who pray God’s blessing over abortion clinics. That’s just blasphemy.

Dr. Willie Parker is a self-proclaimed follower of Christ who’s even willing to go further. He calls himself a “Christian abortion doctor” that does “the Lord’s work.”

Parker has been a favorite spokesman for the pro-abortion movement for some time now, landing puff-pieces and interviews with TIME magazine, where he self-appropriates the civil rights mantle of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. That’s sickeningly ironic, considering a disproportionate number of babies killed by abortion are black.

In his book, “Life’s Work: A Moral Argument for Choice,” Dr. Parker claims he began terminating pregnancies after an “epiphany” inspired by one of Dr. King’s sermons, the one on the parable of the Good Samaritan. Once again, the irony of using a parable about saving a life in order to sanctify taking lives seems lost on him.

As are scientific facts. For example, Parker claims that human lives don’t begin at conception because sperm and egg are both alive prior to conception. From this he concludes that “life is a process and not an event.”

Ignore for the moment that reproductive cells are not human individuals, if Parker’s argument is true, and all living cells are morally equivalent to all humans, then it isn’t clear why he thinks it’s wrong to kill newborns, toddlers, or even adults!

He also says, “You can’t answer scientific questions with religious answers.” But no religious answers are involved here. The existence of a unique and whole human life from the earliest stages of development and pregnancy is settled science.

Writing at Townhall.com, pro-life educator Mike Adams has called Dr. Parker out on those and other strange and inaccurate claims, like the idea that first-trimester babies don’t have any distinct body parts. He then quotes Parker’s book, in which the good doctor admits: “I make sure I find every part, and I place them together, re-creating the fetus in the pan.”
