Democrat Rep on Abortion: ‘Some Kids Are Unwanted, So You Kill Them Now Or You Kill Them Later’

While debating a bill that would put a stop to most abortions in the state of Alabama, Democratic state Rep. John Rogers said Wednesday, “Some kids are unwanted, so you kill them now or you kill them later.”

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

 Sen. Doug Jones, who is challenging Rogers for his seat in 2020, tweeted:

This exchange came after a vote Tuesday in the Alabama state House, which passed overwhelmingly.

Breitbart reports:

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

Rogers chastised his colleagues for their decision to walk out of the chamber, reported Yellow Hammer News.

“When you’re opposed to something, stand there and fight it,” Rogers said. “I’m not leaving and walking out… I’m not scared of a fight.”

According to Yellow Hammer, Rogers addedI may bring a bill to force all men to have vasectomies. That would end this whole debate. There would be no more abortions and eventually no more voters.”

The Human Life Protection Act, HB 314, would make abortion a Class A felony and attempted abortion a Class C felony. The only exceptions are in cases in which “abortion is necessary in order to prevent a serious health risk to the unborn child’s mother.”

This act would make anyone who performs an abortion subject to punishment for up to ten years.

“The heart of this bill is to confront a decision that was made by the courts in 1973 that said the baby in a womb is not a person,” Republican state Rep. Terri Collins said, sponsor of the bill in the state House.

Regardless of what happens from here on out, Rep. John Rogers’ statement should horrify anyone on any side of this issue.
