My husband David French is calling out a new trend over at National Review. A surprising group is emerging as prominent public supporters of abortion –Satanists.
The group has been involved in some strange antics in support of the abortion culture:
In 2013, during Wendy Davis–inspired protests in favor of late-term abortion, pro-life demonstrators dueled with abortion-rights advocates. The pro-life contingent sang “Amazing Grace.” Their opponents brought children to the Texas Capitol toting signs with slogans such as “stay out of my mommy’s vagina,” and spent much of the day chanting “F**k you” and “Hail Satan” in response.
With the release of the Planned Parenthood videos, abortion sympathizers are upping their Satanic game. At a Chicago Planned Parenthood protest, speakers apparently located inside the clinic broadcast “horror music” at pro-life advocates in an effort to drown them out.
That seems civil compared to the Satanic Temple of Detroit’s latest antics, in which Satanists poured milk all over women, allegedly simulating the oppression of breast milk and motherhood. The video is bizarre, with women acting like they’re choking in front of praying Christian protestors.
Then again, perhaps their emergence is not so surprising after all. Satanist theology perfectly fits with “the dark heart of abortion-on-demand: the radical worship of self.”
The Satanists adhere to such edifying statements of principle as “Satan represents indulgence instead of abstinence!” and “Satan represents all of the so-called sins, as they all lead to physical, mental, or emotional gratification!” They also declare that man is “just another animal.” It’s hard to imagine a more appropriate set of doctrines for the rutting life of the sexual revolution, where restraint is evil, physical experience is king, and people are simply sentient mammals trying to get the best out of life. A baby is thus no more sacred — and often less — than any other animal. Just ask Cecil the Lion.
While the vast, vast majority of abortion-rights supporters don’t identify with Satanists and would recoil from comparison with the Church of Satan, prominent Satanist involvement in the abortion debate does have a clarifying effect. A person who is willing to kill another person for the sake of preserving their own prosperity or emotional health is declaring that their life is supreme — their existence is at the center of all things. This is the core of Satanist theology. So when Satanists declare their creeds, they strike uncomfortably close to the rotten core of the abortion-rights regime.
Between the videos from the Center for Medical Progress and the recent publicity of the Satanists, the country is being faced with the truth of the abortion movement. But if there’s one thing Satan is good at, it’s blinding people to the truth. Let’s pray these revelations make a difference.
