California’s historic drought; is God’s wrath over abortion to blame? A local California lawmaker seems to think so. California Assemblywoman Shannon Grove gave her theory that “may be the worst drought in 1,200 years is Devine retribution because California has given women access to abortion clinics”. I may be wrong but, I’m pretty sure God has better things to attend to than drying up California! Highland Capital states Grove further believes that because Governor Perry signed the fetal pain bill, the long drought in Texas stopped the very night he signed the bill. The bill signed in Texas bans abortions 20 weeks after fertilization. Grove also said “Now God has his hold on California”. Grove didn’t respond to the request for confirmation of these comments however, she did go into details about her comments in a Facebook post. Among other statements she was quoted as saying “Is this drought caused by God? Nobody knows. But biblical history shows a consequence to man’s actions”. Not standing behind her is the Pro-life activists in Kern County which is the district Grove represents, makes their position clear, “we have not made a connection between the drought and abortion here in California”. I’m sure Grove is not alone in her opinion but, she is sure to have a hard time proving it.
