    Why are some people born with birth defects?

    Can anyone give a rational theory/explanation as to why some people are born with birth defects?  I have asked many ministers this question and they are blank.

    Some birth defects are due to matched up defective genes, some due to "packaging" like an amniotic band preventing blood flow to the fingers so they don't form or clubbed feet, some due to parents' bad decisions like alcoholism and drug abuse during pregnancy causing mental retardation in the child.

      Good answer, but is there a spiritual side to this?
