Incest Can Be Voluntary, So No Exception for Abortion, Says Virginia GOP Candidate
Virginia GOP Senate candidate Bob Marshall believes there are times incest is voluntary, and therefore, should not be a reason for abortion. Though the interview at which he said this was back in 1989, he said, or at least implied, that comments like this are not mistakes.
Bob Marshall has made his position on abortion very clear over the years. He’s introduced several personhood bills in Virginia, which were intended to give a fetus the same rights as a living person from the moment of conception. He’s also the man who introduced Virginia’s controversial trans-vaginal ultrasound bill, requiring women to have invasive ultrasounds prior to having an abortion.
Bob Marshall is no stranger to controversial remarks on many issues. In 2010, he said, according to RightWingWatch, “Nature takes its vengeance on subsequent children. It’s a special punishment, Christians would suggest.” Perhaps the hateful, vicious people who call themselves Christians would suggest that. Bob Marshall certainly does seem to be one of those.
