‘His Mother Should Have Aborted Him,’ Ala. Dem. Says of Trump Jr.

The Alabama representative who shocked both sides of the abortion debate by saying either “you kill” kids “now or you kill them later” isn’t backtracking.

Democratic Rep. John Rogers, in a follow-up interview with WVTM-TV, took a swipe at President Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., for comments the latter made about Rogers. Trump Jr. had said “every Democratic running for president” should be asked where they stand on Rogers’ comments.

“Him being born, that’s proof right there [that abortion should be legal],” Rogers told WVTM. “That’s a very, very good defense I have for abortion.”

Rogers called it “an honor” to be criticized by Trump Jr. because, Rogers said, the president’s son is never right.

“His mother should have aborted him when he was born and he wouldn’t have made that stupid statement,” Rogers said.

“He’s evidently retarded [or] crazy. Donald Trump’s son, I know there’s something wrong with that boy,” Rogers added.

“He’s evidently retarded or crazy.”

The controversy started last when Rogers rose to oppose an Alabama House bill that would ban most abortions in the state, as Christian Headlines previously reported. It passed, 74-3, although 25 Democrats didn’t vote.

“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,” Rogers said.

Trump Jr., on Twitter, wrote, “This is stomach curling and makes Ralph Northam look like a moderate on abortion. 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.”

U.S. Sen. Doug Jones, a Democrat from Alabama, criticized Rogers’ comments.

“It’s very very unfortunate and I completely condemn all of those comments,” Jones said. “That should not happen on either side of the political aisle and unfortunately it’s become a political issue.”

Some in Rogers’ district also are criticizing him. Mary Edwards, who lives in his district, said his comments are “a disgrace.”

“I have always been taught: Think before you speak,” she told WVTM.
