Virginia lawmaker: Children with disabilities are God’s punishment to women who previously had abort

One of my friends posted this on her facebook page and all I can is WOW! This is absolutely crazy! It makes me wonder what he would try and say my mom did with all the issues my sister has... Epilepsy, missing chromosome, ADHD, lowering IQ as she gets older, BAD eye sight. Did I mention my mother never had an abortion? So Mr. Law Maker... I'm waiting to hear your answer on this one.. I'm not huge into religion, but my mom always says that God will never give you more than you can handle. I would be very embarrassed to know this man or be associated with him any way what so ever after this story.

Virginia lawmaker: Children with disabilities are God’s punishment to women who previously had abortions.

Bob Marshall 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.” Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin has been pushing back against high-profile figures and entities who have been attacking people with disabilities. Will she speak out against someone in her own party? (HT: Right Wing Watch)

Maybe he should read this bible verse:
" As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked him, “Jesus, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”.
“Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him."
~John 9: 1-3
