Abortion Doc Defends Doing Abortions: “My Christianity Leads Me to a Place of Non-Judgment”

Every month, abortionist Willie Parker flies from his home in Chicago to abort unborn babies in Alabama, Mississippi and Georgia.

On Saturday, Parker told a Massachusetts crowd why he makes the journey each month – because of “my Christianity.” A well-known abortionist who often seeks the public spotlight, Parker regularly has made claims that his Christian faith justifies his job of aborting unborn babies.

The Massachusetts Republican reports more from Parker’s speech:

“First of all, abortion is health care,” Parker said.

Secondly, the Christian faith means different things to different people. His calls his service to those in need.

“For me, my Christianity leads me to a place of non-judgment,” Parker said.

An obstetrician, he refused to perform abortions for many years. But reading a sermon by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on the Bible story of the Good Samaritan changed Parker’s mind.

In the sermon, King pointed out that the Samaritan in the parable acted out of concern for the injured man, not out of concern for what might happen to himself if he stopped to help.

Parker is the same abortionist who told Esquire in 2014 that his abortion clinic is a “ministry” and compared himself to the Good Samaritan in a recent op-ed for The New York Times.

On Saturday, Parker tried to flatter himself by describing his deadly practice as a “human service.” Later, he all but admitted that he does kill living human babies.

“I’m never in conflict about if an abortion ends a life process,” Parker said. “Pregnancy is a life process. But all life processes that occur in the body of a woman are subordinate to the well-being of that woman.”



“Women’s agency and power to determine all the processes that go on inside their body allows me to place their well-being first and foremost,” he said.

What the article failed to mention is that Parker does later-term abortions up to 24 weeks, when a baby is viable outside the womb – a practice that horrifies most Americans. Though African American himself, Parker also has defended the discriminatory targeting of African American babies for abortion.
