Another Republican who really should keep his mouth shut

On Thursday, Virginia State Delegate Bob Marshall (R) spoke at a press conference against state funding for Planned Parenthood. He blasted the organization for supporting a women's right to choose, saying that God punishes women who have had abortions by giving them disabled children:

"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.

"In the Old Testament, the first born of every being, animal and man, was dedicated to the Lord. There's a special punishment Christians would suggest."

Marshall is also fighting against health care reform, saying that "Obamacare" is trying to take "your soul."


I saw this posted on Facebook, and one of the comments read, in part, "How dare you call my child punishment." Most of the rest of his comment cannot be pasted here due to the TOS; let's just say he he extended a few invitations to Mr. Marshall. Wink

God punishes women who have had abortions by giving them disabled children:

And women that have disabled children and NOT HAD AN ABORTION?

What's "Gods reason" for that?

You and Bob...two people sharing one brain?
