The Abortion Community and its legion of media sympathizers have a soft spot in what passes for its heart for itinerant abortionist Willie Parker. He parachutes into locales where killing unborn babies is not popular (Alabama and Mississippi) and flashes the badge of his Christian faith. To the gullible, the latter is supposed to absolve the former.
Parker is the kind of man who kills with assembly line efficiency. According to stories in places such as Esquire, Parker aborts as many as 45 babies a day. I wouldn’t be surprised if he whistled on his way to work.
Parker periodically bashes pro-life President Trump. None of the attacks are particularly original or well thought through, but that, of course, is not the point. The objective is to hurl invectives, like Zeus tossing lightning bolts. Here’s one of many examples published in Vicey.com under the headline, “‘We Must Take Action’: An Abortion Doctor in the South on the Future Under Trump.”
To establish his religious bona fides and his would-be pose of martyr , he begins with his “Christian mind” which “remembered the words of Job as his trials unfolded: ‘That which I have feared greatly has come upon me.’”
No reason for Parker to know this but the following verse (Job 3:26) in The Message translation reads, “My repose is shattered, my peace destroyed. No rest for me, ever—death has invaded life.”
Only it is not pro-life President-elect Donald Trump but Parker who has invaded life with death.
Then, Parker writes, his “cultural bluesy, soulful music-loving brain remembered the opening line from an Amy Winehouse song,” which of course includes the ultimate obscenity. But that’s better than okay to the bluesy, hipster Willie Parker because it establishes the definitive contrast:
Winehouse’s [four-letter] term is impolite, but the reversal of laws to make abortion unsafe once again is profane.
It’s important to understand that for Parker, like all his cohorts in the killing trade, it’s not just that Trump has promised to nominate only pro-life justices to the Supreme Court. That, of course, is (in Parker’s framework) the ultimate profanity.
When your objective is killing as many unborn babies as fast as you can, anything that slows the abortion train–waiting periods, parental involvement, not using your tax dollars and mine to pay for abortions–is a kind of obscenity
Like Hillary Clinton and virtually all state and federal Democrats, Parker believes in abortion for any reason or no reason, as late in pregnancy as a woman wants, and most assuredly underwritten by our tax dollars.
Parker ends his op-ed with this call to action:
I urge you to turn your fears into action. Call your elected officials, donate to organizations that are gearing up for the fight ahead, and be a loud voice for the health and dignity for women. Be dejected but not defeated. The difference? Effort. We cannot surmount failure without trying. Experience is not what happens to you—it’s what you do with what happens to you. [Emphasis Parker’s.]
Pro-lifers would agree that “Experience is not what happens to you—it’s what you do with what happens to you,” although that does not do full justice to the trait that infuses all pro-lifers: grit.
On November 8, 2016, we were blessed with the best kind of experience we could have hoped for. We defeated a woman with an unquenchable thirst for expanding abortion at home and abroad, the public face of the Sisterhood of Death.
In Clinton’s place we elected a man who, beyond making the right appointments to the High Court, has vowed to retain the life-saving Hyde Amendment, sign into law the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would end painful late-term abortions nationwide, defund Planned Parenthood as long as they continue to perform abortions, and reallocate their funding to community health centers that provide comprehensive health care for women.
And that’s just part of his aggressive pro-life agenda. Day in and day out, President Trump demonstrates he is keeping his commitment to the Pro-Life community.
