ELDER PATRIOT – The recent release of undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s harvesting of baby parts for commercial gain has sparked outrage and disgust amongst many clear-thinking, loving people and has resulted in protests and counter-protests against government-funded abortion.
The vast majority of protests have taken place in front of more than 300 Planned Parenthood locations nationwide and have attracted tens of thousands of sympathizers, if not more. A large percentage of the members of this group oppose abortion based on their relationship with God as their religion dictates.
For these people it is appalling that the government can use their tax dollars to fund even a single abortion.
Among the counter-protesters were the worshippers of Satan. This demonic group staged their counter-protest to pro-life Christians in front of two Michigan Planned Parenthood abortion clinics in Ferndale and Detroit.
Satanic Temple of Detroit members clad in black robes set out to “illustrate the theocratic agenda imposed upon female bodies” through the use of “political theater” by drenching bound women with milk.
This would all be funny if only these people weren’t so sick. Their website attempts to explain the idiocy of their behavior:
“The Satanic Temple strongly opposes the promotion of misinformation and believes that all people are entitled to make informed decisions about their health, family and future without coercion. We consider our action a form of worship; the rejection of tyranny is an affirmation of selfhood. So long as perverted theocratic systems of power attempt to manipulate our communities and distort truths for political gain, we will rebel.”
That would be a counter argument to ending abortion altogether but that’s not the issue here.
Their claim that they consider their action a form of worship goes to the root of the argument and confirms what many pro-lifers fear, that abortion is as much a religion to those they oppose as Christianity is to them.
It also suggests a considerable degree of hypocrisy in their reasoning. They are clear that they have no problem demanding the worshipper of one religion be made to financially subsidize the actions of the worshipper of a different religion even when the religious teaching of each religion is in conflict over that action.
