#ShoutYourAbortion (SYA) is proud to present a live conversation with abortion provider Doctor Willie Parker and actress/activist Martha Plimpton, with introduction by Lindy West, SYA’s Amelia Bonow, and Surge Northwest. Doctor Parker, an outspoken Christian reproductive justice advocate and one of few abortion providers in the American South, is the author of the best-selling book Life’s Work, a Moral Argument for Choice. Life’s Work chronicles Doctor Parker’s journey from a poverty-stricken upbringing in Alabama, to that of a comfortable private physician living in Hawaii who refused to perform abortions for moral reasons, to his current life as abortion provider in the Deep South. Life’s Work is an articulation of the moral argument for abortion that pro-choice America has been waiting for.Doctor Parker will read from and speak on his new book, his Christian faith, and his life of personal and professional experience in abortion care, followed by a conversation with actress Martha Plimpton, well-known for her work as a film and theater actress as well as her staunch activism on abortion and reproductive rights in the USA.
