On Thursday, Virginia State Delegate Bob Marshall called for an end to public funding for Planned Parenthood, which offers reproductive services -- including abortion. Marshall argued:
"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. 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."
