An abortionist who claims to be a Christian and defends his murderous profession is justifying his actions, says a pro-lifer.
The problem with abortionist Willie Parker (pictured below) is the same problem with all of us, which is we can justify what we know is wrong, says Anglicans for Life president Georgette Forney.
"I shop too much. Somebody else might eat too much or drink too much or view pornography," she observes. "And we kind of subtly numb ourselves to this."
The abortionist Parker, she further says, has just taken that justification to an extreme step.
Parker has justified his work by comparing carrying a child in the womb to slavery, Newsbusters.org, citing recent sympathetic articles about him, reported.
Citing Martin Luther King Jr. as a model, the abortionist also called it his responsibility to "pursue justice and human dignity," Newsbusters noted.
"The courage that's necessary to assert yourself on behalf of human dignity, they modeled that for me, despite risk," he told Newsweek.
"I think that what we each need to do," says Forney, "is step away and stop and ask God, Is there something you're showing us you want us to be aware of that we're doing just like a Willie Parker? But then we also need to be praying for Willie Parker to let the Holy Spirit in, because to do what he's doing he's shut down, he's hardened his heart."
That's the only way you can destroy human life and mentally survive it, she says.
