Alabama State Rep. John Rogers spoke Tuesday as part of a Democratic filibuster against an abortion ban in the state house. The law which was passed by the Alabama House would define fetuses as distinct and living children, granting them protections under law.
Alabama State Rep. John Rogers (D) on abortion: “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”
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), historically dedicated to protecting Americans' constitutional rights, took Rogers's side. According to the Alabama Political Reporter, the ACLU viewed the law as interfering with a "private medical decision."
It is astonishing that this man would treat innocent children has criminals. This sounds like something straight out of Captain America Winter Soldier. In the movie if one's situation in life indicates that you are likely to commit a crime, those in power will execute you in order to prevent the possibility of it ever happening. That's right, they wanted to kill innocent people because of something they might do. Mr. Rogers is using the same logic. If you are likely to actually do something you can be treated the same way as if you had actually done it.
What is wrong here is the unspoken claim that you can commit evil in order to (hopefully) do good. This is the essential pro-abortion stance; those who are most innocent (children who haven't reached the age of reason) can be treated as though they are guilty of the most henious evil all for the supposed good of society or what is more often the case, the selfishness of those who place their physical comfort above doing what's right.
