“Kill them now or you kill them later.”
Those were the words spoken by Alabama Democrat State Representative John Rogers on Tuesday in reference to unborn babies while members of both parties debated House Bill 314, which would essentially ban abortions in the state. Moreover, the legislation would make it a felony for any woman to receive an abortion unless her physical health is in jeopardy, and would additionally penalize doctors with a class C felony should they perform such abortions. In other words, this is an amazing bill that any conservative — or any human being — with an ounce of compassion and half a soul would support. Sponsored by State Representative Terri Collins, the bill passed 74 to 3, mostly because a bunch of Democrats refused to even vote by way of protest, according to the Alabama Political Reporter.
Rogers decided to speak up, and his chilling, stomach-churning remarks have since gone viral:
“Some kids are unwanted. So you kill them now, or you kill them later. You bring them into the world unwanted, unloved, then send them to the electric chair. So you kill them now or you kill them later.”
But, it didn’t end there:
“I 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.”
He then went on to advocate for killing children who are “retarded” and “half deformed.”
“Some parents can’t handle a child with problems. It could be retarded. It might have no arms and no legs.”
After Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter to criticize Rogers’ remarks, Rogers seized the opportunity to attack him and even used Trump Jr. as a defense of abortion:
“[Donald Trump Jr.] is proof that mothers ought to have the right to an abortion because he is evidently retarded or crazy. I know there’s something wrong with that boy. I look at him and I can tell there’s something wrong with him. That’s the best defense I have for more abortions right there looking at him.”
Leaving aside the astonishing miracle that a rambling, nearly incoherent, and somewhat incomprehensible liberal psychopath was actually elected to public office in the predominantly conservative state of Alabama — and has somehow managed to remain in office for over 30 years — his words reveal something rather incredible about the Left in regards to abortion: For once, they’re finally being honest.
I’ve mentioned numerous times both here on the blog and on my social media channels that the radical pro-abortion position adhered to by extremist progressives usually comes wrapped in palatable euphemisms, flowery language, unique code words, dishonest terminology, and the like. This is, of course, done in a desperate attempt to confuse and distract the general public and to keep women in the dark, lest they clearly see and understand the barbaric horrors of the abortion industry and its accompanying ideology. This is the whole reason that the undercover Planned Parenthood videos were downplayed by the Left and why several key Democratic abortion advocates accused Republicans of doctoring the footage. ‘Better that they not know the gruesome and gory details’ has been the longstanding modus operandi of the industry and its supporters in the public square.
That ship has now sailed. Following the examples set by New York’s unapologetically savage abortion law and politicians such as Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, men like Rogers have become blatantly honest about what abortion is and why his party believes in it. In other words, the Left has taken off its mask. Just look at Rogers’ own bloodthirsty rant. Rather than use words like “fetus,” or “clump of cells,” he actually says “child” and “kids.” He admits that these are human children — something that the vast majority of his liberal counterparts would never dream of doing — and even goes a step further and admits that abortion is a form of “killing.”
The rich irony in all of this is that, whether he consciously meant to or not (it’s difficult to determine given the man’s unintelligible style of rambling), Rogers has actually exposed the lies of the Left — his very own political party. He is literally conceding that every single abortion procedure, regardless of the stage of pregnancy, deliberately ends a human life. It doesn’t end the life of an ostrich or a long-eared woodland hedgehog. Abortion “kills” human children — helpless, innocent, defenseless human babies. This certainly isn’t breaking news to conservatives, Christians, or anyone willing to agree with basic scientific facts and biological truth. But it has never been, up until just recently, so candidly acknowledged by a hardcore Leftist like Rogers.
As for some children being “unwanted” and “unloved,” this is obviously a ludicrous and utterly nonsensical assertion. Right now, there are over two million American couples waiting to adopt. There’s no such thing as an “unwanted” or “unloved” child. Rogers’ entire argument is one gigantic straw man that just collapses in on itself when you run the numbers. Besides, even if there were millions of unwanted children roaming the streets of our nation, would that justify slaughtering them in the womb? Out of the womb? Certainly not.
But, for all of his logical fallacies and factual errors, at least Rogers was correct and honest about one thing: The hideous truth of abortion and his party's depraved adherence to it. And that’s more than can be said for most of his political cohorts.
