Mississippi Horror: Doctor Aborts Babies in the Name of Jesus

WP

This is one of the most evil things I’ve ever read:

Russell Moore’s article in The Gospel Coalition, “Aborting in the Name of Jesus,” led me to a recent article in Esquire about the “ministry” of Dr. Willie Parker. Parker flies into the state of Mississippi to perform abortions, because no doctor in the entire state is willing to. 

Moore writes:

Dr. Parker says he aborts unborn children because Jesus wants him to. Parker, the article says, preached in Baptist churches as a young man, before going into medicine. He had, he says, a “come to Jesus” moment where he became convinced that he ought to do abortions. “The protesters say they’re opposed to abortion because they’re Christian,” he says. “It’s hard for them to accept that I do abortions because I’m a Christian.”

The whole Esquire article is worth a read. Its author, John H. Richardson, glowingly describes his subjects. Parker is “perfectly bald, with a salt-and-pepper goatee, a small gold hoop gleaming in his left ear, and a warm smile on his dark brown face.” He has an “almost priestly cadence” when he delivers these lines:

“I see women who are crying because they are Christians,” he continues, “and they are torn up by the fact that they don’t believe in abortion but they’re about to have one. What I tell them is that doesn’t make you a hypocrite.”

Yes, he’s almost like a priest, except there’s one minor detail#…#he’s delivering a message of pure evil. Forget for a moment that Parker is about to vacuum babies from their mothers’ wombs. His words unrelated to infanticide call into question his supposedly Christian worldview. Take, for example, his words of wisdom for people who are agonizing over feelings of discomfort over a decision: “If you’re feeling conflicted, if you are not comfortable with what you’re doing, you may be processing this far longer than you need to.”

Or, his occupational advice to a stripper worried the abortion might keep her off the pole too long. He explains to her that “dancing” is perfectly acceptable occupation, by saying, “That’s how you make your living.”

One of the women is worried that the abortion might prohibit her from a swimsuit on her upcoming beach vacation.  That’s not a selfish concern, he tells her.

    This guy has lost his marbles. His judgement is going to be worse than anything I can dish out. I will most definitely be praying for him tonight and those that he murders.

  • TwoLegsGood

    Guy’s notta Christian. Sorry.

  • Joanne Mayo

    Indeed a horror. Does not reflect Christ at all. He is a sorry excuse for a Christian.

  • Jasmin

    he is a disgusting animal!

  • cant_believe_it

    Well, he is keeping women from being butchered with a wire hanger in a back alley, that’s an act of brotherly love!
    All of you sniveling pharisees would look so much more honest in your effort to end abortion if you promoted easy access to contraception for everyone instead of slobbering over your own righteousness together with the most self-righteous brat of all here on this blog…

      Yes, so many women used coat hangers. I never heard of it once in all the years until Roe vs. Wade when the lawyers came up with that one. How easy does contraception have to be? Do we have to buy it for you and then put it in your mouth and give you a glass of water and make you swallow? Nine dollars a month. If you can’t afford that, you can’t afford an abortion. You sound like one mean devil.

      • Cvb

        You’re asking on this blog how easy does contraception have to be?

        • Katepatate

          And you’re asking this because???

      • cant_believe_it

        What’s mean about trying to find a solution for an ongoing problem? All you do is moan and whine and preach and accuse and judge, but if you really cared, you would try and help find a solution to the problem.
        Bristol Palin is the best example that preaching and teaching alone just doesn’t work, so it must be something else. Go to schools, teach them about what’s out there, hand out condoms at clubs, so they have it handy if needed.
        Nobody cares about judgmental jabbering.

        • Katepatate

          The only one moaning and whining here is you. You expect others to take responsibility for your actions. No preaching here except from you. You preach to us to pay for your contraceptives. The only thing that will keep girls from getting pregnant before they are married is to teach them to keep their knees together and respect themselves and to wait for a guy who really cares for them. Now we tell our girls just do it with any guy who comes along and then we are told we should pay for their abortions. Bristol Palin is not the first nor will she be the last girl to make a mistake, but she has apparently learned from her mistake and is trying to make something of her life. She evidently interests you or you wouldn’t be on this site. Oh, yes, hand out condoms. Good choice. By the way, I did find a solution. My daughter got married before she got pregnant. I wish all girls could have such a happy ending.

          • cant_believe_it

            Teach them to use contraception. There is a reason that the red “abstinence only” states have the highest teen pregnancy rates. Your stuff doesn’t work and Bristol is the best example.
            I don’t want you to pay for anything, I I would NEVER have an abortion, but people like you make me a firm believer in pro-choice.

    “…..read.” ?

  • Katepatate

    There is pure evil in this world and it is manifested in this so-called doctor. He is forgetting his Hippocratic oath, first do no harm.

  • Thomas Hubbard

    He will bun in the lake of Fire eternity, while these young Babes are in the bosom of the Lord!
