Colorado lawmaker says attack on pregnant woman 'curse of God'

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 03/27/2015 - 12:43
By Keith Coffman DENVER (Reuters) - A Colorado lawmaker who said an attack on a woman whose unborn child was cut from her womb was a "curse of God" caused by U.S. policy on abortion was criticized by Democrats and Republicans alike on Thursday. Gordon Klingenschmitt, a Republican member of the state House of Representatives from Colorado Springs, made the remarks on his "Pray in Jesus Name" satellite television show. "This is the curse of God upon America for our sin of not protecting innocent children in the womb," said Klingenschmitt, a minister and retired U.S. Navy chaplain. "And part of that curse for our rebellion against God as a nation is that our pregnant women are ripped open." He was referring to the case of Michelle Wilkins, a 26-year-old Colorado woman whose fetus was cut from her last week by a woman who lured the victim using an online ad for baby clothes.
