If you live in Virginia, go ahead and punch a Republican in your state for me. Anyone who would vote for this idiotdeserves a good punch*.
State Delegate Bob Marshall of Manassas says disabled children are God’s punishment to women who have aborted their first pregnancy.
He made that statement Thursday at a press conference to oppose state funding for Planned Parenthood.
“The number of children who are born subsequent to a first abortion with handicaps has increased dramatically. Why? Because when you abort the first born of any, nature takes its vengeance on the subsequent children,” said Marshall, a Republican.
This guy uses religion (Catholicism) to support and promote the belief that if my mother had an abortion before she gave birth to me that I should be smited with a disability? This sounds like a fair religion and a reasonable god to people? Seriously? While one could say he’s just a crackpot, there is actual biblical scripture to back up this kind of unjust punishment. This is why religion and religious leaders scare me. Next thing you know, they’ll be trying to enact laws to punish children for the sins of their fathers!
I’m sure this insanity is not supported by any scientific fact. I’m sure this insanity is offensive to everyone who has disabled children. Getting past the “disabled child is a punishment” fact, which is bad enough, is this dude suggesting every woman with a disabled child is hiding the fact that she’s had an abortion? I’m sure that’s going to go over well with his constituents! I wonder how many pro-lifers have disabled children? Guess we know what THEY’VE been up to! Ha!
But getting past all that, what exactly is he suggesting then?“If you already had an abortion, just keep having abortions, or you’ll end up with a disabled child”? I think he is! Why else would he warn you? It’s not like you can “take back” your abortion, just like Bob Marshall’s mother can’t “take back” her choice to give birth to him. It sounds to me like Bob Marshall is giving you fair warning so you can avoid your punishment. I’m thinking he supports you aborting all subsequent pregnancies. So go ahead ladies, have as many as you want. Bob Marshall approves!
Seriously, who votes for these idiots? Yea, I know all politicians are idiots, but some clearly more than others.
*No, don’t actually punch anyone, even if they do deserve it. I’m sure “God” is fully capable of making sure they are punished for voting for this guy. Perhaps he’ll give them disabled children.
