Democratic Alabama State Rep. John Rogers went viral on Thursday for making some awful remarks about abortion.
"Some kids are unwanted, so you kill them now or you kill them later,” he stated while filibustering a pro-life bill in Alabama. "You bring them in the world unwanted, unloved, you send them to the electric chair. So, you kill them now or you kill them later."
Just about everyone, including Donald Trump Jr., rebuked Rogers for his callousness. He concluded that what Rogers said was even worse than Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam's infamous comments on babies who survive abortions.
This is stomach curling and makes Ralph Northam look like a moderate on abortion.— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) May 1, 2019
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. https://t.co/KchZfqvQMK
How did Rogers respond? With another shocking remark.

John Rogers (D) responds to Donald Trump Jr. calling him out for his remarks about killing "unwanted kids", says Trump Jr. is "proof that mothers ought to have the right to have an abortion because he is evidently retarded or crazy." pic.twitter.com/YUHTee8puw— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) May 2, 2019
"I know there's something wrong with that boy," Rogers said of Trump Jr., noting that he is perfect proof for the right to abortion.
If the president's son had been aborted, Rogers reasoned, he wouldn't have made that "stupid statement."
