It’s mind-boggling to me that a black person would ever be compared to someone as vile and racist as the original founder of what is today Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger. However, after the comments of Alabama State Rep. John Rogers’ recent comments about how much he doesn’t care for “unwanted” children, it seems to make sense.
Dr. Alveda King, the niece of the late civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, joined “Fox & Friends” on Friday to talk about Rogers’ comments about abortion that the state representative made concerning a state bill that “would make abortion a felony and could jail physicians for 10-plus years,” according to Fox News, as reported by the Daily Caller.
King responded to the following comments from Rogers, which you can view video of here:
Some kids are unwanted, so you kill them now or 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.
Wow! No word on what Rogers thinks of the crazy idea that everyone that has ever lived has died at some point. Death is a part of life. Rogers seems like he just wants to deny a lot of human beings, who can’t defend themselves, the right to naturally experience death after hopefully living a long and happy life.
King told “Fox & Friends” that after initially hearing Rogers’ comments she “thought about Planned Parenthood.”
“It started out, of course, [with the] Birth Control League with Margaret Sanger, and she said that they were going to need some talking heads,” King said. “And in order to get that, they were going to cultivate Negros with scholarships and grants and awards and those kinds of things that could best carry their message, which — it was a secret message of eugenics and genocide, but it was well-couched in something called compassion.”
What?! You mean to tell me that people who wanted others to engage in nefarious practices without them really understanding the negative aspects of it, cloaked those practices in something that is typically a positive human trait, like compassion? You don’t say?
But it wasn’t the only time during King’s comments that she hit the nail on the head:
But compassion does not require the death of anyone. Compassion brings life rather than death. And so if someone is unwanted or an unexpected pregnancy — many people know that I had two abortions myself long ago without this understanding. So there’s a better way to serve women, the babies in the womb, the dads, the families, than to kill a person. We can deliver mercy without killing people.
A phrase like “compassion does not require the death of anyone” shouldn’t be a concept that’s difficult to understand. In my opinion, compassion doesn’t mean killing an innocent human life because you don’t think that life has value.
Unfazed, Rogers decided to talk a little smack towards Donald Trump Jr. after leaning that the president's son didn't approve of the state congressman's comments. Rogers even went so far as to call Trump Jr. "retarded" and "the best defense I got for abortion."
At the end of the day, no matter how heinous or insane people might view Rogers’ comments on abortion and/or Trump Jr., he has the right to say what he unbelievably believes. The upside to Rogers’ comments, and other similarly crazy leftist comments, is that they don’t seem to have a problem letting the rest of us know exactly where they stand. That’s a good thing, because it’s better to know than not to know and be surprised later when it could be too late.
