Notable Quotes of Critics of Abortion Doctor Willie Parker

By    |   Wednesday, 27 May 2015 01:05 PM

Dr. Willie Parker, an abortion doctor who flies into Mississippi from his home in Chicago to perform up to 45 abortions per day for Mississippi’s last abortion center, claims to be a devout, Bible-believing Christian.

"There's more than one way to understand religion and spirituality and God,” Parker told Esquire. “I do have belief in God. That's why I do this work. My belief in God tells me that the most important thing you can do for another human being is help them in their time of need."

Parker’s controversial statements and work have garnered several notable quotes from his critics, including the following:

1. “It is no coincidence that John Richardson’s story in Esquire magazine is titled, “The Abortion Ministry of Dr. Willie Parker.” Richardson’s profile is a futile attempt to make a kind of saint out of a man who flies into Mississippi twice a month and performs as many as 45 abortions a day.” - Dave Andrusko, National Right to Life News.

2. "Let’s pray and work for an end to the injustice of abortion. Let’s pray and work for better solutions for women in crisis. But let’s pray for doctors like this as well.” - Russell Moore, The Gospel Coalition

3. “From a theological and philosophical standpoint, the argument is an example of classic relativism, which ... has no place in actual Christianity. This philosophy places Christianity within a framework of subjective ethical principles, for which Scripture was never known. Rather than admitting to the moral absolutes taught by the Old and New Testaments, such as the oldie but goodie, ‘you shall not kill,’ Parker says he believes that abortion helps women in need, and therefore it must be Christian. In his analysis, Parker skips over the Christian teaching that it is always an absolute moral wrong to commit murder. He also fails to acknowledge that abortion does not help women in the long run. And he overlooks the fact that ends (i.e., temporary relief from a distressing pregnancy situation) do not justify means (namely, murder) in Christian thought.” - Lauren Enriquez, Live Action News

4. “Yes, he’s almost like a priest, except there’s one minor detail ... he’s delivering a message of pure evil ... Parker describes killing our society’s most helpless and innocent as “helping another human being in their time of need.” - Nancy French, National Review
