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.”
I have no words right now because at the moment I am too busy screaming obscenities at my computer screen.
EDIT: Turns out I do have words. FUCK YOU YOU ABLEIST PIECE OF SHIT. Not that it’s any of your business but my mother never had an abortion yet here I am disabilities (yes PLURAL) and all. GO DIE IN A FIRE. Better yet, come back and talk to me when you get your MD.
