Alabama Democrat’s Outrageous Abortion Comments Draw Scorn

A state representative from Alabama drew national scorn on Wednesday for controversial remarks he made regarding a state bill that addresses abortion.

State Rep. John Rogers (D) argued that abortion “ought to be a woman’s choice,” a position shared by many Democrats nationally. But then Rogers took his remarks a step further. “Some kids are unwanted, so you kill them now or you kill them later.”

“You bring them in the world unwanted, unloved, and you send them to the electric chair. So, you kill them now or you kill them later,” he continued, according to a video posted online.

The National Review’s Alexandra DeSanctis posted video of Rogers’ remarks:

Donald Trump, Jr. weighed in on Twitter, calling the remarks “stomach curling” and adding that it makes Gov. Ralph Northam’s abortion remarks look “moderate.”

“Every Democrat running for President needs to be asked where they stand on this. The extreme turn we’ve seen from Dems on abortion recently is truly sickening,” he added.

The remarks are sure to impact the U.S. Senate contest in Alabama. Several Republicans have lined up to run against Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL), who won a special election in 2017 to replace outgoing Sen. Jeff Sessions.
