Republican Virginia State Delegate Bob Marshall claims that disabled children are God’s punishment on women who aborted their first pregnancy.
Yeah, he really did.
“The number of children who are born subsequent to a first abortion with handicaps has increased dramatically,” he said. “Why? Because when you abort the first born of any, nature takes its vengeance on the subsequent children.”
“In the Old Testament, the first born of every being, animal and man, was dedicated to the Lord,” he said. “There’s a special punishment Christians would suggest.”
I hope the special punishment Mr. Marshall’s constituents give him is voting for his opponent in the next election.
Progressive news outlets have openly questioned Sarah Palin’s take on this, but I kind of wish they wouldn’t. It was a mistake for her to interject herself into the “retard” argument as now she’s thrust her child into the spotlight, and the poor kid hasn’t done anything wrong. I really wish the media would leave him out of it, but they can’t until she stops talking about it. I mean, the kid is a Palin, he’s already going to be screwed up enough.
