Crazy Republican of the Day: Disabled Kids-- Punishment from God

SO when did his mom have her abortions? Um, what about the women who have never had an abortion but have a child with a disability?

Disabled kids are God's punishment

RICHMOND — Republican State Delegate Bob Marshall of Manassas says disabled children are God's punishment to women who have aborted their first pregnancy.

"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."

According to Marshall, Planned Parenthood receives "about $500,000 a year" from the state.

But Jessica Honke, director of public policy for Planned Parenthood Advocates of Virginia, said the only state funding Planned Parenthood receives is from Medicaid reimbursements. That amount was about $35,000 in the 2009 fiscal year, according to the Department of Medical Assistance Services.
