Lord Have Mercy A Christian Doctor Who Believes Abortion is Morally Right!
Reader meet, Dr. Willie Parker who is a confessing born-again Christian doctor who not only performs abortions but also advocates for the morality of the pro-choice movement. Dr. Parker is very vocal about his position, and his recently released book, “Life’s Work: A Moral Argument for Choice”, explains why he feels performing abortions on women is, in fact, helping them. Dr. Parker is a 54-year-old, African-American Christian, who splits his time between Georgia, Mississippi, and Alabama performing abortions.
When it comes to abortions I support a woman right to choose what's best for her. Whenever an issue like abortion is raised, those who don't believe in it always start arguing that there is no rights concerning the issue. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and their particular opinion is that a woman should not have “freedom of choice.”
On Wednesday, April 5, 2017, just a day after his book released, Dr. Parker addressed a crowd at Strand Book Store in New York City. Dr. Parker explained how his experiences of race and class discrimination have informed his current view of abortion. He compared restrictions on abortion to slavery—drawing the similarity between one person (or group of people) claiming to know what’s best for another when in reality the motivation is to control that other person (or group of people). “If you’ve never lived with your back against the wall,” Dr. Parker said, “you don’t get why a woman would go to any length to end a pregnancy they do not want.”
