Alabama Sen. Doug Jones Laughs at Babies Dying in Late-Term Abortions: “What a Stupid Question”

February 20, 2020

An Alabama senator laughed off a question about protecting unborn babies from late-term abortions this week in an exchange caught on video.

U.S. Sen. Doug Jones, an Alabama Democrat, laughed and called the question “stupid” when asked how he would vote on the upcoming Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, according to the Susan B. Anthony List.

“Senator Doug Jones has proven once again that he is no moderate when it comes to abortion on demand through the moment of birth. Alabama’s Democratic senator may think it is ‘stupid’ to question his abortion extremism, but rest assured, his constituents take respect for human life very seriously,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser.

The U.S. Senate is expected to vote next week on the pro-life legislation, which would ban abortions after 20 weeks when strong scientific evidence indicates unborn babies can feel pain. It also is expected to vote on a second pro-life bill to protect newborns who survive abortion from infanticide, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.

Jones comes from a conservative state, but he has a pro-abortion voting record. In the video, released Wednesday, Jones was confronted about his pro-abortion stance.

“Do you think abortion should be banned after five months?” someone asks him in the video.

“Should abortion, should abortion be banned … As I said, what a stupid [question], ” Jones replies, laughing.

“You’re voting on it next week, sir,” the person replies.

“Yeah, and I’ll vote on it next week,” Jones says, walking away.

Jones was supported by the billion-dollar abortion chain Planned Parenthood in his 2017 election campaign. Prior to the election, he told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd that he would not support any restrictions on abortion, if elected. Specifically, he said he opposed a ban on abortion after 20 weeks when strong scientific evidence indicates unborn babies can feel pain.

TODD: So you wouldn’t be in favor of legislation that said, ban abortion after 20 weeks or something like that?

JONES: I’m not in favor of anything that is going to infringe on a woman’s right and her freedom to choose.

Dannenfelser said Jones has betrayed Alabamans by voting for abortion on demand.

“With a record of voting in favor of late-term abortion more than halfway through pregnancy and forced taxpayer funding of abortion, Sen. Jones has repeatedly betrayed Alabamians, siding with the radical abortion lobby and fellow extremist Democrats in Congress,” she said. “If Senator Jones refuses to protect innocent unborn children, he won’t be laughing come Election Day.”

She cited recent polling showing strong public support for limiting abortions after five months of pregnancy, including 55 percent of Independents and 43 percent of Democrats.

There are more than 12,000 abortions annually after 20 weeks of pregnancy, according to the Guttmacher Institute, the research arm of the abortion lobby.

Growing evidence indicates that unborn babies are capable of feeling intense pain by 20 weeks, if not before. This means those 12,000 unborn babies likely suffer excruciating pain when they are aborted, often through brutal dismemberment abortions, which lawmakers also are trying to ban.

Both pieces of legislation would require a 60-vote threshold in the U.S. Senate because pro-abortion Democrats are likely to filibuster both of them. The votes on ending the filibuster would give Americans another indication of just how radical two of the leading Democrats running for president are on abortion — Sens. Bernie Sanders and Amy Klobuchar. Neither are expected to vote to end the filibuster and allow votes on either common-sense bill.

The Good News


Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don’t have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.




  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
