At Least He's Not Your State Legislator

  • 14 Comments

(Poor, poor Virginia. – promoted by Middle of the Road)

Colorado’s Dave Schultheis has some serious competition.

Republican Virginia State Delegate Bob Marshall said at a press conference last week that God is taking “vengeance” on parents who have had abortions by making their other children disabled, according to the News Leader in Central Virginia.

“The number of children who are born subsequent to a first abortion with handicaps has increased dramatically,” he reportedly 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 added. “There’s a special punishment Christians would suggest.”

Marshall quickly followed up on his website, claiming that he would never say what it is he admitted he said.

Marshall posted a statement on his Web site distancing himself from the comments.

“No one who knows me or my record would imagine that I believe or intended to communicate such an offensive notion,” he wrote. “I have devoted a generation of work to defending disabled and unwanted children, and have always maintained that they are special blessings to their parents. Nevertheless, I regret any misimpression my poorly chosen words may have created as to my deep commitment to fighting for these vulnerable children and their families.”

Marshall made the comments at an event calling for Virginia not to offer state funding for the group Planned Parenthood, which performs abortions.

  1. 1. So the moral to the story is: abort your second and subsequent babies? Wait a sec… Isn’t that what those godless heathen Communist Chinese are doing?

    2. “The number of children who are born subsequent to a first abortion with handicaps has increased dramatically.” So are you saying that God has only recently decided that abortion is a problem? Otherwise, wouldn’t Almighty God have ALWAYS taken vengeance against Firstborn-Aborters? Why the recent “dramatic increase”?

    3. “Nature takes its vengeance…” Make up your mind: is it Nature, or God?

    4. “There’s a special punishment Christians would suggest.” OK, what exactly did you mean by that? WHAT “punishment”?

    Let’s consign Bob Marshall to the political wilderness.

      1. but it seems to me Sarah Palin would also want to be upfront in condemning the comments. If she doesn’t, then calling out President Obama and Rahm Emmanuel for insensitive remarks can only be construed as political grandstanding.
