On February 18th, abortionist Willie Parker spoke to students about his willingness to do abortions at 27-weeks during a lecture on “reproductive justice” at Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University. At 27-weeks, a baby in utero can feel pain and is far past the point of fetal viability, which is 21-weeks.
However, regardless of those scientific facts, Parker believes we need to get over it and told the students, “We have to get over the love affair with fetuses and love women and children.”
According to Campus Reform, during his lecture he compared himself to Star Trek and overcoming the final frontier – providing “abortion care.” He also compared the fight for abortion rights to fighting against Ebola, which is the rare and deadly disease ravaging Africa. But, unfortunately, what’s worse than those outrageous statements is that Parker says he’s a Christian.

As LifeNews previously reported, Parker insists he was raised a Christian but turned to the “dark side” after listening to a sermon by Dr. Martin Luther King that gave him a deeper understanding of my spirituality, which places a higher value on “compassion.” Currently, Parker is one of two doctors who travel to Mississippi to perform abortions at the state’s only abortion facility, Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
Parker describes his average abortion patient like this: “The women most likely to be in those situations are trapped in poverty, often women of color or poor socioeconomic backgrounds, less education, and women and girls at the extremes of reproductive age. Women beyond the age where they think they can become pregnant, or young girls who have infrequent and irregular sexual activity and aren’t conscious of it.”
At Princeton, campus posters, newspapers and social media praised Parker for his leadership and courage in the pursuit for “reproductive justice,” and his lecture was publicized as, “Going to Mississippi: If I Don’t, Who Will? The Pursuit of Reproductive Justice.” Additionally, prior to the event, college Democrats emailed its members asking for progressive students to attend and show their support for women’s reproductive freedoms and for Dr. Parker’s advocacy.
Zach Horton, a Princeton student who attended Parker’s lecture, said, “Parker was perfectly amiable in his outward demeanor, but his manner of answering questions demonstrated extreme intolerance of pro-life activists. Among the many softball questions, only one side really had the floor, barring our four questions [of opposing viewpoints].”
Unfortunately, Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs has hosted several pro-abortion speakers this year, including, Kathleen Sebelius, former U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services, and Wendy Davis, the unsuccessful gubernatorial candidate who argued in a 12–hour filibuster for late-term abortion.
