MONTGOMERY, AL — Planned Parenthood Action Fund and Planned Parenthood Southeast Advocates is sharing the following statement in response to Alabama Rep. John Rogers' recent comments on abortion.

Statement by Staci Fox, President and CEO, Planned Parenthood Southeast Advocates

We are disgusted and deeply offended by the most recent comments from Representative Rogers. Not only were his remarks reprehensible, they are a complete distraction from the real work still left to be done in this state. The people of Alabama deserve better.

“Our state suffers from a dire OBGYN shortage, skyrocketing infant and maternal mortality rates, and more deaths from cervical cancer than anywhere else in the country. Now we face an outright abortion ban that would be a death sentence for even more Alabama women.

“As we speak, Alabamians are dying from real public health problems that need our attention and we will not allow one man’s repulsive rant to distract us from the real issues at hand.
