  • VA Delegate Robert Marshall (pictured below left) has apologized after claiming the increase in children born with handicaps is because God is punishing women for aborting their first child:
  • Marshall said his broader point on Thursday was that he had collected a substantial amount of published medical research suggesting that abortions raise the risk of miscarriage and birth defects in subsequent pregnancies and that those findings echoed the Bible’s teaching that abortion is wrong….

    “The point is, there are profound consequences to the act of abortion,” Marshall said.


    Late Monday, his office released a formal apology. Addressing the story that his office said had “conveyed the impression that I believe disabled children are a punishment for prior abortions,” Marshall explained:
    “No one who knows me or my record would imagine that I believe or intended to communicate such an offensive notion. I have devoted a generation of work to defending disabled and unwanted children, and have always maintained that they are special blessings to their parents. Nevertheless, I regret any misimpression my poorly chosen words may have created as to my deep commitment to fighting for these vulnerable children and their families.”

  • The Washington Post is running an AP article regarding the concerns of Shiawassee County prosecutors with finding a fair-minded jury in the case of abortion protester Jim Pouillon’s murder.
  • OK legislators have quickly started the process of re-passing separate pro-life bills which were struck down by an OK judge when they were in one bill, because OK law requires that laws cover a single subject.
