Christian late-term abortionist and Martin Luther King Jr.

LifeNews recently wrote about an abortionist named Willie J. Parker who identifies as Christian. He performs abortions up to 24 weeks and 6 days.

What inspires this African American doctor to kill 24 week babies like the one below? The words of Martin Luther King Jr.

24 weeks

24 weeks

“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 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.”

He also says:

“ I think my work is honorable and important, and I won’t be distracted. It’s what I believe in my heart is the right thing to do.

There is, however, a limit to his “altruism.” He won’t do abortions after the legal cutoff.

“I don’t do abortions beyond 24 weeks and 6 days. In the absence of lifesaving measures, my cutoff is the legal limit. That becomes a moving target, but nobody in D.C. does them beyond 25 weeks.  Once a fetus has the possibility to survive outside the womb — with or without extraordinary support measures — I will not do an abortion. The only exception is if a woman’s life is in danger or the fetus is fatally flawed.”

So the law pretty much stops him from killing babies that are able to be born alive. Of course, unborn babies have survived being born as early as 21 weeks.  Or, in the case of a study done in Journal of American Medical Association, as early as 20 weeks.

Some abortions at or around 24 weeks are done by tearing the baby apart with forceps, a D&E abortion. Here is a chart of such an abortion at 23 weeks
