Willie Parker, who commits abortions up to 24 weeks, claims that the biblical story of the Good Samaritan convinced him to do abortions.
“In listening to a sermon by Dr. Martin Luther King, I came to a deeper understanding of my spirituality, which places a higher value on compassion. King said what made the good Samaritan ‘good’ is that instead of focusing on [what] would happen to him by stopping to help the traveler, he was more concerned about what would happen to the traveler if he didn’t stop to help. I became more concerned about what would happen to these women if I, as an obstetrician, did not help them.”
