Dr. Willie Parker is an abortionist. This is not, or should not be, a controversial statement; he gets paid to perform abortions, and that's how he earns his income.
Parker is so proficient at performing abortions for money that he's been honored by, who else, the United Nations. The UN has declared that Parker is a notable "Women's Human Rights Defender" because he performs lots and lots of abortions for money.
Esquire described Parker as "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."
Women’s human rights defenders (WHRDs) are both female and any other human rights defenders who promote and protect women’s rights and gender equality, including women working on any issue related to human rights and fundamental freedoms, individually and in association with others in any region of the world.
Putting aside the bizarre construction of the phrase "both female and any other", since the only "other" is male, the UN is honoring Parker for promoting and protecting women's rights. And by "rights" they mean "abortion." And by abortion, I mean "lots of abortion."
Abortion is a popular thing with the UN.
Since performing abortions has made Willie Parker wealthy, and now made him an international baby killin' cause celebre, one would naturally expect him to be quite proud of what he does. After all, if you're a good enough abortionist that even the UN steps back and says, "Hey, all that abortion? Nice work," there's no reason to want to hide from it.
Or is there?
The video supplied by the UN doesn't use the word "abortion" once.
Instead of telling viewers what he does, which is kill unborn babies through a procedure known as abortion, Parker uses the common euphemisms of the left. Phrases like "reproductive health care." He also vaguely refers to "the type of services I provide."
Parker's abortuary is in Mississippi, and it's the only one in the state. Parker himself doesn't live in Mississippi, he just travels there every week to offer "the types of services he provides." It seems no other doctor in Mississippi was willing to provide abortions, so Parker saw the opportunity and seized it. His business is so profitable that he doesn't drive to Jackson, MS each week, he flies.
There is great irony in Parker being the abortionist that the UN has chosen to honor, because he makes clear that the last thing on his mind is what's best for the women who come to his place of business. Mississippi requires that women seeking abortions be given information about other options, such as adoption, as well as the potential risks of the procedure.
"There's some things that the state requires me to tell you," he begins. "Some of the information I'm required to give you is designed to discourage you or to scare you about the decision you're making, so I'm going to tell you the things that I have to tell you by law, but I'm also going to tell you what in my best medical opinion is more important for you to know."
A doctor who truly values a woman's rights would value that woman's right to be fully informed about any and all decisions she makes, and in fact doctors who perform other types of surgery provide full disclosure of risk and options every day. Parker only grudgingly complies with state law and explicitly tells his customers to disgregard the state mandaded information. He makes sure they know that he, and only he, knows what's best for them.
"But guess what?" he continues with another reassuring smile. "Those are all the exact same risks that go with having a baby. In fact, they're more likely to happen giving birth than they are with an abortion; a woman is ten times more likely to die in childbirth than she is having an abortion."
Parker can't let women believe giving birth to their child is reasonable alternative to abortion. He doesn't get paid unless the baby dies.
"The third thing is that the state requires us to give this brochure," he says, pointing to a stack of pamphlets. "It has information about adoption and other things that you might find useful. We're required to offer it to you, but you don't have to take it."
You can almost hear him muttering to himself. "Stupid state laws, making me inform my customers that they don't have to buy what I'm selling!"
One has to wonder why a man so clearly invested in making his business as successful, as profitable as it is, can't bring himself to identify himself as an abortionist to the UN. Parker laughably calls himself a Christian, so it's possible he harbors some guilt over being such a prolific serial killer. Even Michael Corleone refused to talk about his business. More likely, it's simply because Parker's friends and neighbors know he's a doctor of some sort, but don't know he's a leading abortionist. It's harder to get the good table at the restaurant when you're know for killing unborn children.
The UN has chosen to honor this charlatan as some sort of humanitarian. This is very sad. It's sad because an organization with such an impace clearly doesn't value life, or women, or the truth. It's sad that so many women who might have made a better decision if given the same information in an unbiased manner will never be able to undo what they've done. And, it's sad because Parker will happily continue on, killing babies and buying more gold jewelry with the profits.
