Dr. Willie Parker’s “Life’s Work”

Listen 00:49:28

After hearing a sermon from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., DR. WILLIE PARKER realized that in order to be true to his Christian faith, he must show compassion for all women. So, he stopped his obstetrician practice to focus on providing safe abortions for women—often women living in poverty and women of color. In this hour, Marty talks to Parker about his new book Life’s Work: A moral argument for choice and how he balances his spiritual beliefs as a doctor.
