The Satanic Panic Meets the Anti-Abortion Crusade.

The Satanic Panic trickled to an undignified end years ago. But not long ago we saw a resurgence of it wheezing back to life in a most unexpected way when a Christian conjob figured out a way to join that largely-defunct moral panic with a far more current one.
