The success of the abortion lobby depends on their ability to deviously hide the substance of the practice being discussed. They need to keep the conversation vague and about choice without any respect to the violent, murderous choice being chosen or the existence of the human being in his or her mother’s womb.
Not all abortion supporters are skilled in this deception, however. Alabama State Rep. John Rogers (D-Birmingham) spoke about abortion as exactly what it is: killing. Rogers supports the bloodshed as a way to kill babies now so they don’t turn into criminals we have to kill through execution when they’re older.
Rogers went on to argue that children also should be killed if they have a disability. “Some parent’s can’t handle a child with problems. It could be retarded. It could have no arms and no legs,” Rogers said according to the Alabama Political Reporter.
Rogers is no different than any abortion supporter, only less adept at hiding the reality of abortion while talking about it. Abortion is, objectively, the intentional killing of a human being. Abortion supporters either argue the embryological equivalent of the flat-earth conspiracy by denying the humanity of the human in the womb, or they concede the humanity and demand the right to kill nonetheless. More and more, abortion supporters are shifting from the former to the latter argument, Rogers obviously being among them.
