Abortionist Willie Parker, who identifies as a Christian, admitted last week he’s carried out tens of thousands of abortions, which he said end human lives.
Parker made the stunning admission during a debate with pro-life professor Mike Adams of the University of North Carolina, Wilmington. The doctor’s comments were recorded by Created Equal, an anti-abortion advocacy organization.
“It is wrong to kill an innocent human being, I agree,” Parker said plainly. “Abortion kills a human being, I agree.”
Adams went on to ask Parker for specific medical details about abortion, to which the doctor responded: “What’s your point?” and “What does it matter?”
“How many innocent human beings have you intentionally killed?” the professor asked.
Parker, initially uncertain how many pregnancies he’s terminated, later estimated the total number of abortions he’s carried out to be somewhere around 20,000.
How does Parker claim to be Christian?
Parker said he decided to become pro-choice after listening to a sermon by the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
King, he recalled during a 2017 interview with Time, was describing “what made the Good Samaritan good.”
“In substance, what made that person good was to ask, ‘What will happen to this person if I don’t stop to help?’” Parker explained. “Well, I became more concerned about what happens to my patients when abortion care is not available than what might happen to me for providing the care.”
The medical doctor went on to argue the term “pro-life” is — in his view — a “misnomer.” Rather, he explained, the two sides of the debate should be labeled “pro-abortion” and “anti-abortion.”
“People who are anti-abortion are pro-fetus, but that often leads them to be against the lives of women,” he said. “To be pro-abortion, which I am, is not ‘abortion should happen because it’s a good thing.’ It’s not a good or a bad thing; it’s a biological reality.”
Interestingly, Parker went further than most pro-life advocates by saying life “begins before conception.” But instead of making his case for why, then, abortion is morally acceptable, he sidestepped the issue altogether by saying, “You can’t answer religious questions with scientific answers and you can’t answer scientific questions with religious answers.”
