How extreme has the Democratic Party’s official policy of abortion on demand become? Imagine the comments, quoted above, of John Rogers, a Democratic state representative from Alabama as a campaign commercial for Republicans. No matter if one is sympathetic for the Democrats position on this sensitive moral issue, Roger’s infelicitous statment is so heartless and depraved that it brings into focus, once again, the gory procedure of aborting an infant after birth. Here is Rogers unvarnished defense on abortion on demand,
“Some kids are unwanted, so you kill them now or you kill them later. 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.”
How is that for being forthright? It makes Virginia Governor, Ralph Northam’s lurid and frighentingly clinical, description of how an abortionist will make a newborn, quite comfortable, prior to snuffing the life out of him/her. Democrats know that their support for infanticide is unfavored by most voters. What they don’t want or need, is some idiot politician in Alabama calling attention to their extremism on this issue.
The difficulty for Democrats, is they aren’t going to be able to claim that Rogers doesn’t speak for the party. There are two Democrats, who have now expressed, in the most callous and cavalier manner, their support for deliberately killing a newborn infant.
It will be interesting to see how other Democrats respond to Roger’s comments in the days ahead.
