A Democrat Senator Representative in Alabama made some eyebrow-raising comments during the state legislature’s ongoing debate over a potential abortion ban.
“Some kids are unwanted, so you kill them now or you kill them later,” Rep. John Rogers said. “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.”
“Some parents can’t handle a child with problems,” he continued. “It could be retarded. It might have no arms and no legs.”
Rogers’ comment drew the ire of high-profile conservatives, including Donald Trump Jr.
“This is stomach curling and makes Ralph Northam look like a moderate on abortion,” he said on Twitter. “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.”
The bill, which would criminalize abortions except in cases where the mother’s life is in danger, passed the Alabama House.
