GOP Congressman Says Pregnant Women Are Attacked Because God Is Punishing America For Legal Abortion (VIDEO)

Republican Congressman Gordon Klingenschmitt (R-Colorado Springs) has come up with a “perfectly reasonable” explanation as to why a pregnant woman was brutally attacked in his state last week: God’s wrath for legal abortion laws in America.

The victim was seven months pregnant and had gone to the home of a bogus Craigslist poster in hopes of purchasing baby clothing. Instead, she was attacked and her fetus was cut from her womb. Although she survived the horrific attack, her fetus did not. Klingenschmitt referenced this brutal attack on Wednesday, during his “Pray In Jesus Name” program, which you can watch below. His connection between this random yet awful incident and a deity’s quest for revenge in response to abortion laws is absolutely ridiculous:

During his little sermon, Klingenschmitt ties the attack on the pregnant woman to a passage from Hosea, where God punishes the Samaritans for rebelling and says, “their little ones shall be dashed in pieces, and their pregnant women ripped open.”

Referring back to the victim’s experience and abortion laws, Klingenschmitt says:

“I wonder if there is prophetic significance to America today in that scripture. This is the curse of God upon America for our sin of not protecting innocent children in the womb — and part of that curse for our rebellion against God as a nation is that our pregnant women are ripped open.”

The shaming and fearmongering that Republicans busy themselves with has absolutely no end.
