African American Pastors Group Says Dem Legislator’s Comments Show Infanticidal Tilt in Party’s Abortion Stance

Today, Rev. William Owens, President of the Coalition of African American Pastors (CAAP), thanked Alabama State Legislator John Rogers for exposing how extreme the Democratic Party’s abortion stance has become.

Commenting on a bill to ban abortion except when the mother’s health is at risk, Rep. John Rogers set out his opposition by claiming that unwanted children inevitably become death-row murderers.

“Some kids are unwanted, so you kill them now or you kill them later,” said Rep. Rogers. “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.”

Rogers went on to talk about the, “half-deformed,” and, “retarded,” children that face abortion, the implication being that it would be better if they were terminated in the womb.

Stunned by the legislator’s apparent callousness and utilitarian view of human life, Rev. Owens noted that Rogers’ comments revealed the intolerant foundations of the abortion lobby.

“It is clear that Rep. Rogers believes that not every human life is sacred,” stated Rev. Owens. “It is absurd to suggest that every human being who grows up with bad parents ends up a murderer. Even the slightest effort to look into the data would show how ridiculous that is.”

Rev. Owens continued: “Rep. Rogers’ way of thinking would require us to believe it’s a good thing that black babies are aborted at a higher rate than other children. Likewise, he seems to feel that any child who grows up in less than ideal circumstances is better off dead and that no mother who contemplates abortion is capable of loving their child.”

“It’s easy to decry Rep. Rogers’ foolish  remarks. But we should be thanking him. Without intending to, he showed us exactly how far the Democratic Party will go to defend abortion – right up to the point of claiming that it’s good to kill babies in the womb on the off-chance that they might turn out bad later. This isn’t a defense of abortion. This is a defense of fascism dressed up as progressive thinking,” concluded Rev. Owens.
