Honoring Dr. Willie Parker 

This year, Planned Parenthood of Maryland welcomes Dr. Willie Parker, author of Life’s Work: A Moral Argument for Choice, as our special guest and speaker. As a practicing physician in some of the most restrictive states in the south for access to abortion care, Dr. Parker knows the value of access to reproductive healthcare and strongly advocates for it. He is the chair of the board of Physicians for Reproductive Health, and a board member of The Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice and URGE. He was recently honored by the United Nations Office of Human Rights as one of twelve Women’s Human Rights Defenders on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the United Nations’ Fourth World Conference on Women, and he has also received Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger Award, the organization’s highest award.
