Pissed Off

I posted this article to my FB page a few days ago, but I'm STILL mad about it.

For the record, I have never had an abortion, but it wouldn't matter if I had.  Cooper is not a punishment from God.  No one that cute and sweet could ever be a punishment.  Yes, Cooper can be challenging, but I think that's a GOOD thing.  Obviously, God thought I could handle Cooper.  Cooper has already taught me so much.  The biggest thing I have learned is to look at the good instead of the bad.  I choose to see all that Cooper IS doing, and hope he will continue to do more.  If I only looked at what Cooper is not doing, I would drive myself crazy.  So already, Cooper is making me a better person.  

My Aunt Frannie had the best comment.  She said that "he should be shot."  That might be a little extreme, but he does need to learn to keep his mouth shut.  Sorry, this has been floating around my head for several days.  It just makes me so angry that anyone could be this wrong.

Here is the article:

Virginia lawmaker: Children with disabilities are God’s punishment to women who previously had abortions.

Bob Marshall
On Thursday, Virginia State Delegate Bob Marshall (R) spoke at a press conference against state funding for Planned Parenthood. He blasted the organization for supporting a women’s right to choose, saying that God punishes women who have had abortions by giving them disabled children:
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.”
Marshall is also fighting against health care reform, saying that “Obamacare” is trying to take “your soul.” Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin has been pushing back against high-profile figures and entities who have been attacking people with disabilities. Will she speak out against someone in her own party?
