Several weeks ago, one of America’s most prominent abortionists faced off in debate with Professor Mike Adams at the University of North Carolina. Willie Parker is famous for claiming to be a Christian who finds fulfillment in performing abortions, and in 2017, he authored the book Life’s Work: A Moral Argument for Choice. Adams is a professor, a columnist, and the author of Welcome to the Ivory Tower of Babel. A fierce opponent of abortion, he was clearly determined to force Parker to reveal to the audience the hideous nature of the work he is so proud of.
Parker, for his part, clearly thought it would be a clever tactic to simultaneously concede and disregard the main argument pro-lifers make against abortion right out of the gate. “It is wrong to kill an innocent human being, I agree,” he stated. “Uhhh…abortion kills a human being, I agree. When I do an abortion, I am clear what she is asking me to do for her. I am clear that she is asking me to remove a fetus from her. I am clear that in your terms, it is the intentional killing of a fetus.”
