Just when I think the abortion industry and its murderous fanatics have done or said the most insane and psychotic thing ever, they always manage to top themselves. That happened this week when a guy named Willie J. Parker was featured in an interview with The New York Times discussing the sheer delight of performing abortions and the joy he gets from “helping women” by killing their children. You see, Mr. Parker is an OB/GYN and self-described reproductive justice advocate (whatever that means) who used to oppose abortion on spiritual and moral grounds, but now endorses it wholeheartedly. And not only does he support it, he actively aborts “human entities” (otherwise known as babies) under the belief that he’s doing the spiritually correct and morally proper thing.
My God, where do I even begin? Here’s Parker’s own explanation for why he changed his mind:
I had to come to a crisis moment regarding a religious understanding that left me unable to help women when I felt deeply for their situation. So I needed to convert from a religious understanding that left me paralyzed to act on my deepest sense of connection to one that empowered me to do what I felt to be the right thing. It felt as life-altering for me to move from being unable to do abortions to being able to do them as it did to move from being a nonbeliever to becoming a believer.”
It’s indescribably striking that a man who claims to be “religious” and a “believer” can even remotely bring himself to justify what has been scientifically proven over and over again to be the murder of a living human child. (Particularly when he’s medically knowledgable enough to know the truth.) Not to mention the insanity and reprehensibleness of comparing one’s own personal movement from being pro-life to pro-abortion to a religious or spiritual conversion.
Anyway, The Times also ran an op-ed by Parker back in November of 2015 in which the doctor says he came to a “deeper spiritual understanding” about abortion after reading a sermon by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. — which is sort of like saying you learned how to perform witchcraft after watching “The Little Mermaid.” But, Apparently this was enough to inspire Parker to care more about the needs and wants of the women requesting the abortions than about himself and the possibility of his own spiritual damnation (or so he says):
I was moved by [King’s] discussion of the quality of the good Samaritan and of what made the Samaritan “good.” The Samaritan reversed the question of concern, to care more about the well-being of the person needing the help than about what might happen to him for stopping to give help. I realized that if I were to show compassion, I would have to act on behalf of those women. My concern about women who lacked access to abortion became more important to me than worrying about what might happen to me for providing the services.”
Of course, you’ll notice that — in the midst of twisting and distorting the theology of the Biblical story from Luke 10 — Mr. Parker conveniently never bothers to mention the baby that will inevitably die as a result of the abortion procedure or the fact that far less than one percent of all abortions ever have anything to do with saving the actual life of the mother. (Contrasted with the traveler who surely would have died from his wounds had the Samaritan not rescued him.) Let’s just be transparent: There never has been and never will be a scenario in which a woman will, in any way imaginable, benefit physically from her unborn child being stabbed, poisoned, ripped apart or decapitated inside of her. This is never “necessary” no matter what sort of medical terminology abortion sycophants throw around. In all honesty, it’s much more accurate to say that abortion is about preserving and maintaining a woman’s lifestyle. It’s about putting her personal convenience ahead of the life of her child.
And this brings us to the real issue at hand: Abortion is always self-centered, self-focused, wrong and sinful. Because of this, it can never be moral or spiritual. Everything about it exists in total and complete contradiction to Biblical morality and spirituality. This isn’t to say that women who’ve had abortions are beyond the reach of God’s grace and love. On the contrary: There’s always redemption, forgiveness hope and a second chance. (1 John 1:9) But, this doesn’t negate the spiritual or moral truths about the act of abortion itself, which is, in every way, the intentional taking of innocent life and therefore wrong by moral and Biblical standards. (Exodus 20:13, although yes, some killing is still endorsed in the Bible, such as in wartime and in cases of judicial execution for justice sake.) We can, therefore, say with certainty that “Thou shalt not kill” clearly applies to murdering innocent unborn children.
Similarly, the literal, factual and scientific truths aren’t suddenly invalidated just because we give unborn babies a different name. Calling them “human entities” or “fetuses” rather than “human beings” doesn’t change a thing, perhaps other than serving to ease the consciences of doctors like Mr. Parker who prefer not to face the reality of going to bed every night with the blood of hundreds of dead children on their hands.
Either way, it certainly doesn’t bring about any moral or spiritual justification for their actions and it never can. That’s because, at the end of the day, there’s nothing moral about killing babies.
