Governor, would you please have a word with Virginia Delegate Bob Marshall about these comments?:
RICHMOND — 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
“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.”
