"Christian" Abortion Doctor--Inspired by Scripture and MLK

Dr. Willie Parker, an OB/GYN who professes to be a Christian, says he began performing abortions after having an "epiphany" while listening to a sermon by Martin Luther King, Jr. about the Parable of the Good Samaritan.

The Left is attempting to create a new relativistic moral order that replaces goodness with evil and calls it "godliness."

Be informed.

The calling

Dr. Willie Parker runs abortion shops in 5 states. He claims it was Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who inspired him to become an abortionist.

Parker says,
"Dr. King said that...What made the Good Samaritan good was his ability to reverse the question of concern. Instead of asking what will happen to me if I stop to help this person, he asked what will happen to the person if I don't stop to help him?"

Dr. Parker was obviously hearing what he wanted to hear and making it mean what he wanted it to mean.

This kind of "twisting Scripture" is epidemic in today's Christian Church in America.

You decide what you are going to do, then co-opt biblical verses that seem to support your actions. The religious Left repeatedly does this regarding immigration, borders, and national sovereignty.

Jim Wallis, the founder of Sojourners, consistently twists Scripture to support his organization's agenda for open borders. Millions support his efforts, including George Soros and other globalists.

This, however, is pushing a new frontier of rebellion against God and His creation.

I'm certain MLK would be as shocked and dismayed as anyone to hear he was this man's inspiration.

Parker says there were also other facts that persuaded---or inspired him as well.

The "facts" Parker says also persuaded him. He notes that "one in four women will have an abortion by the time they're 45," he concludes that maternal mortality "in this country is at an all time high and illegal abortions are unsafe."

The moral argument.

Parker says,
"It's his 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 who stand silent or stand with disregard as 11 people have been murdered in the course of providing abortion care or seeking it."

He describes himself as a Christian reproductive justice advocate. His life's work is summed up in his book, "Life's Work: A Moral Argument for Choice."

Dr. Parker debated pro-life University of North Carolina professor Mike Adams last month on the UNC campus. Adams is also associated with the biblical, conservative Summit Ministries.

During the debate Adams, of course, took issue with Parker's use of the Parable of the Good Samaritan.

He said: "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."

He continued:
"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 hi-jacked in the name of God. That is obscene."

Dr. Parker tried to make the case that "Fetuses are human beings, but they're not people. And if a fetus is not a person and a woman is a person, they may both have a moral weight but that moral weight is not equal."

He said, "The question becomes, given that a fetus is inside of a woman, how do you give rights to a fetus that you don't take away from the woman that it's inside of?"

This is the classic argument pro-abortion people always make.

Professor Adams' response is one every pro-life person should read and remember.

It's about intentionally killing human beings, distinct living and whole human beings, and doing it in the name of bodily autonomy. You cannot pit the right to life against to liberty or against the pursuit of happiness. Why? Because there is no moral right to intentionally kill an innocent human being, even if it makes you freer, even if it makes you happier. Because if we did that, that would negate all rights for everyone, including the right to life itself.

The Prophet Isaiah (5:20) wrote: "Woe to those who call evil good and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!"

He also said (v 21): "Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight...", prophesying that as, "fire devours the stubble, And the flame consumes the chaff, So their root will be as rottenness and their blossom will ascend like dust...because they have rejected the law of the Lord."

Abortion is on the wrong side of the Law of the Lord. Ultimately it will either destroy this nation...or this nation will eradicate legal abortion.
