Pro-Abortion Alabama Democrat: “kill them now or you kill them later”

An Alabama Democrat publically took his defense for abortion to another level.

Following the passage of Alabama House of Representatives abortion legislation, a measure that would ban most abortions in the state, Democrat Representative John Rogers voiced his opinion for a woman’s right to choose, saying, “kill them now or you kill them later”

The Washington Post reports:

“I’m not about to be the male tell a woman what to do with her body,” he said, repeating a common refrain among abortion-rights advocates. “She has a right to make that decision herself.”

Then his argument took a turn.

“Some kids are unwanted, so you kill them now or kill them later,” he said. “You bring them into the world unwanted, unloved, then you send them to the electric chair. So you kill them now or you kill them later. But the bottom line is that I think we shouldn’t be making this decision.”

Alabama Senate Republicans Tweeted about Rogers’ reprehensible comments and included a statement issued by Alabama Republican Senate Majority Leader Greg Reed.

Donald Trump, Jr., also weighed in calling Rogers’ comments “stomach curling,” while calling out Democrat 2020 presidential candidates on where they stand.

Breitbart reports, “Lawmakers in the Alabama House voted, 74-3, to approve the legislation after most Democrats walked out of the chamber, refusing to vote.”

The Alabama Senate is expected to take up the bill soon.

Representative Rogers’ comments are appalling and his extreme and radical views represent a new and disturbing feeling on abortion by a Democrat.
