The state lawmaker who just days ago left even abortion advocates gasping by claiming, “You kill them now or you kill them later,” now says Alabama Sen. Doug Jones, a Democrat, agrees.
WND reported when Alabama Democratic state Rep. John Rogers made the statement in opposition to a bill in the state legislature to restrict abortion.
Now the Washington Examiner reports he received a telephone call from Jones offering support:
Details of “Kill ’em now or kill ’em later” AL Rep. Rodgers’ phone call with @DougJones
“He called me twice. He told me, “Doug, John, I know you’re right but I got to come out against you.” I said, “Okay.” I said, “Fine, if it’s going to help your campaign, do that.”

“He called me twice. He told me, ‘Doug, John, I know you’re right but I got to come out against you.’ I said, ‘OK.’ I said, ‘Fine, if it’s going to help your campaign, do that,'” Rogers told Talk 99.5 radio in Birmingham.
The host asked Rogers to confirm, stating, “This is my take away so far, that a sitting United States senator called you and said that they agreed with you, but politically he had to step out publicly against you?” the Examiner reported.
Rogers said, “Right.”
Rogers told the radio host he had another conversation with Jones later which was not quite as cordial in which Jones yelled at him, the report said.
“I said I told Doug, ‘Doug, bye. I’m not ready to talk to you because you cannot apologize for me.’ I do my own apologies,” Rogers said.
WND reported Rogers’ statement:
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” pic.twitter.com/dxPg6X759h

“Some kids are unwanted, so you kill them now or you kill them later,” he said. “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.”
Mindy Robinson reacted on Twitter: “My adopted friends would bet to differ. Last I checked they were more than happy to be alive and adopted into loving families … and not cut up into pieces and left in a trash can. Explain to me again why Democrats think they’re so morally superior over the rest of us?”
Mitch Fewell credited Rogers with making him feel good about his decision to leave Alabama and move to California, where state officials are prosecuting two pro-life advocates who exposed Planned Parenthood’s sale of the body parts of unborn babies.
“I left Alabama 11 years ago and relocated to California. I want to thank this j—— for making me finally feel like I made the right move,” he tweeted.
