Have you ever had an abortion? Well then, when you do have children, rest assured, they will have some kind of disability, and that will be your punishment, and you will take it like the slutty whore you are.
As is often the case when I read things like this, I’m rendered nearly speechless. There used to be a time when very little could take my words away, but lately, there is so much… So, so much… Just so… much… *head-desk, head-desk, head-desk*
So this jackass, Bob Marshall (R-Va), feels that disabled children are God’s punishment to women who have aborted their first pregnancy. That’s right. Punishment, damnit. Note that this doesn’t explain the millions of women who have had abortions that go on to have children with no disabilities. Maybe that means God feels some abortions are okay? And on the flip side, what about children with disabilities born to parents who have lived the humblest and most pious of lives?
“When you abort the first born of any, nature takes its vengeance on the subsequent children.”
He wants to cut off funding to Planned Parenthood (shock), because he, like so many ill-informed others, seem to think that PP’s sole purpose in life is to provide abortions. PP reps just snatch women off the street and talk them into having an abortion – even if they’re not pregnant. All part of the PP agenda, don’t you know?
Here’s something that will just make you giggle. Rev. Joe Ellison, vice president of the Council on Biblical Principles, said that when he was in college, he paid for girlfriends to get abortions. He said he still feels guilty about that today. He’s also “declaring war” on Planned Parenthood.
You know, despite the fact that if either the Reverend or any of his paramours (how much tail did he get, anyway, if he’s using the plural?) had stepped inside a Planned Parenthood, they probabably could have avoided the need to pay for anything. Literally, anything. They give condoms out like Halloween candy, and you can get oral contraceptives on the cheap.
However, reason is lost on these people regardless, so that’s pretty much alll the effort I’m putting forth.
