Amerikansk politiker: ”Barn som föds med funktionshinder beror på abort vid tidigare graviditet”

Chockerande korkade saker sägs med jämna mellanrum i amerikansk politik. Här är det senaste:

Western Prince William Del. Bob Marshall, R-13th, 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.” (WTOP)

Bob Marshall är republikansk politiker i Virginia. Han försöker med detta argument stoppa statligt stöd till kvinnoklinikerna Planned Parenthood.
