More Hell, Fewer Dahlias: The Musings of a Radical Feminist.

WTF, Virginia?

Posted on: March 1, 2010

I’m a little late on this, but…

“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.”

Thanks, Delegate Bob Marshall (R (big surprise?)) of Virginia.

Let’s count what’s wrong in these statements! This is one of my favorite games. I know of people who played drinking games to George W. Bush’s State of the Union Addresses. Okay, let’s begin:

-Medically, there is no link between abortion and disabilities or infertility in the future.

-The ableism in this statement is disgusting. Assuming every child who is born with any sort of disability is a punishment is just plain wrong! I’m surprised he went that route, honestly, I thought that school of thought became less popular in Republican circles after the Sarah Palin Experience, where she lugged her disabled son Trig around everywhere. Is he suggestion that the Republic Pundit Goddess is experiencing a punishment for something? Oh no he didn’ttt.

-Who the hell is he to be referencing the Old Testament in regards to law making?! Why should a book that YOUR version of a higher power gave to YOUR people decide laws for all the people who don’t believe in that book, or don’t have the same beliefs about the same book?!  Just seriously, this bugs me so much.  How dare he? When you’re an elected official, your people are your first priority. NOT your higher power, or your book, or anything. The people you are representing are the opinions you should represent. If every single person, or even the majority that Bob Marshall represents feels that way, then he can use it to inform his law making.

Educate someone about abortion, legality, and the assholes that manage to squirm into our legislature today, people!

(Maybe I should start making a WTF (location) series. It is my theme lately.)

I am so excitedly waiting for Sarah Palin to weigh in on this.

I’m so surprised she hasn’t already…it’s been five days! It took her like twelve seconds to respond to the Family Guy joke, so I’m a bit confused.
