Abortionist Willie Parker calls himself Christian and recently claimed the parable of the Good Samaritan inspired him to kill babies in abortions.
Parker made the comment during a debate with Professor Mike Adams at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. Summit Ministries and Ratio Christi hosted the event. An abortionist in Mississippi and Alabama, Parker often claims he is a devout Christian. Once, he even called his abortion practice a “ministry.”
During the debate, Parker made a wild claim — that a parable Jesus told of a man who helped someone downtrodden inspired him to make a career out of abortion. As ChristianHeadlines reports:
“Dr. King said that … what made the Good Samaritan good was his ability to reverse the question of concern,” Parker said. “… Instead of asking what will happen to me if I stop to help this person, he asked what will happen to this person if I don’t stop to help him?”
Parker listed other facts that persuaded him: “one in four women” will have an abortion by the time they’re 45, maternal mortality “in this country is at an all-time high,” and illegal abortions are unsafe.
“As someone who has chosen medicine at the craft, I have an ethical responsibility to provide healthcare to that woman,” Parker said. “And as a Christian, I’m thrilled that I have the moral responsibility to provide compassionate care to that woman, even in the face of people who stridently disagree with me, many of who share the same faith identity with me, and many of who stand silent or stand with disregard as 11 people have been murdered in the course of providing abortion care or seeking it.”

Professor Adams took exception to the comments and thought Parker’s exploitation of the parable was a warped and twisted bastardization of its meaning.
“I agree that the Good Samaritan is a good parable because I often ask the question: Who is my neighbor? And I’ll answer that question for you right now. The unborn is my neighbor,” Adams said. “You will notice something about that parable — when someone was robbed and beaten and lying by the side of the road, you know what the Good Samaritan didn’t do? The Good Samaritan didn’t stop by the side of the road and slit his throat and slowly and methodically dismember him. I believe that the Good Samaritan parable is a pro-life parable, and I don’t appreciate it being hijacked in the name of God. That is obscene.”
During the debate, Parker admitted to – and defended – killing human beings.
“It is wrong to kill an innocent human being, I agree,” Parker said. “Abortion kills a human being, I agree.”
At another point, Adams asked Parker, “How many innocent human beings have you intentionally killed?”
Parker initially said he was not sure, but later he estimated the total at about 20,000.
