Alabama Democrat on Abortion: 'Kill Them Now or Kill Them Later'

In filibustering a pro-life bill in Alabama that challenges Roe v. Wade head on, state Rep. John Rogers made a jaw-dropping statement in arguing that abortion is necessary in cases where the child is unwanted.

"Some kids are unwanted, so you kill them now or you kill them later," Rogers said. "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."

The Alabama Political Reporter noted that Rogers is a Catholic and that he is personally pro-life, but disagreed that the legislature should take away the choice to abort their child from women.

“I may bring a bill to force all men to have vasectomies,” he said. “That would end this whole debate. There would be no more abortions and eventually no more voters.”

He also argued that parents of children with disabilities should be able to have an abortion.  

“Some parents can’t handle a child with problems,” he said. “It could be retarded. It might have no arms and no legs.”

House Bill 314, which was sponsored by state Rep. Terri Collins, R-Decatur, ended up passing 74-3. 

“The heart of this bill is to confront a decision by the Court in 1973 that says that the child in the womb is not a human being,”  Collins said. 

In describing the legislation, Collins said it “makes it a criminal offense to perform an abortion as a doctor. The woman would be held blameless.”
