Abortion Doc Willie Parker: “My Christian Mind” Tells Me to Oppose Trump and Do Abortions

Abortionist Willie Parker has given himself a reputation for using the Bible to defend killing unborn babies.

In a new column for Broadly, Parker reflected on the results of the presidential election and compared his situation to that of the biblical character Job, who suffered intense pain and loss inflicted by Satan.

When Parker woke up the morning after the election, he said two thoughts went through his head: “My Christian mind remembered the words of Job as his trials unfolded: ‘That which I have feared greatly has come upon me.’ My cultural bluesy, soulful music-loving brain remembered the opening line from an Amy Winehouse song: ‘What kind of f—— is this?’”

Later, he added, “Winehouse’s term is impolite, but the reversal of laws to make abortion unsafe once again is profane.”

President-elect Donald Trump made a number of pro-life promises on the campaign trail and, since his election, has been putting together a cabinet of pro-life leaders. One action that concerns abortion activists the most is Trump’s promise to appoint “pro-life” justices to the U.S. Supreme Court. Pro-lifers hope that these justices will pave the way for the end of Roe v. Wade and abortion on demand.

Parker mentioned all these things in his column, and said he feels uncertain about the future of abortion in America. He claimed that women already are facing too many obstacles to get abortions. For example, he said they are being “harmed” by policies like the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits taxpayer funding for abortions in Medicaid.

“America’s most vulnerable communities, like some of the patients that I see every day, will suffer if additional anti-choice policies are pushed through under president-elect Trump,” Parker wrote.

Later, he continued:

Yes, we are being threatened, but now is our chance to fight. Know you are surrounded by some of the fiercest of advocates I’ve ever known: Providers of comprehensive reproductive health care will continue to advocate for your health and safety no matter what. Over the course of the last 50 years, we’ve made such striding progress; we must stay vigilant against policies that would pose a threat to your bodies. We hear your concerns, we share these concerns, and we are alongside you for the long haul to stand up for you and your family’s wellbeing.

But he forgets about another member of the family, the most vulnerable patient of all – babies in the womb. Parker is not helping them; he is actively killing them at his abortion practices in Mississippi and Alabama, and making his living doing so.

What Parker does not understand in voicing his concerns about dangerous back alley and at-home abortions, is that pro-lifers do not simply want to make abortions illegal; we want them to be unthinkable. There is no one way to end abortion and the unjust killing of unborn babies. Laws and court rulings are just steps toward the goal. Pro-lifers also are working to change hearts and minds about abortion, ensuring that women never have to feel that aborting their unborn child is the solution to their problems. Through pregnancy centers, maternity homes, adoption agencies and other ways, pro-lifers also are empowering women with the resources and support to choose life for their babies.

Pro-lifers do not want women to die in back alley abortions any more than we want unborn babies to. That is why the pro-life movement is working in many different ways to ensure that every mother and every child are treated with the value and respect that they deserve.
