Back when then-Texas Senator Wendy Davis went on her infamous filibuster against banning abortions after 20-weeks, Planned Parenthood supporters chanted “Hail Satan” outside the statehouse, so it really shouldn’t be any surprise they are on the same page as Satanists.
The abortion industry and followers of Satan himself are really angry that the state of Texas passed a law that mandates the remains of aborted babies be cremated or buried, instead of being crassly disposed of in landfills or, like the Center for Medical Progress videos showed, sold for profit.
The Center for Reproductive Rights, a big pro-abortion group, is pretty mad: “This regulation has no basis in public health, and it’s just a pretext for putting an additional burden on women who choose abortion or who suffer miscarriage,” said David Brown, a senior staff attorney for the Center for Reproductive Rights.
And the Satanists – well, they are angry because the law attributes human dignity to *gasp* humans: “Texas health officials are baldly imposing the view that the fetal tissue is elevated to personhood—a religious opinion that conflicts with our own,” said Satanic Temple founder Lucien Greaves.
But the Satanic Temple isn’t just talking about their anger, they are encouraging others to show their displeasure by a campaign called Cumrags for Congress (this is not fake news).
The Temple’s spokesperson, Jax Blackmore, shared a photo that we will spare you on Facebook along with this message:
Without going into the possible legal ramifications of this idea, while disgusting and inappropriate, it is in line with what abortion supporters like to do: use personal bodily fluids to make their point.
A company called Cute Fruit Undies made panties with pro-life politicians on them that women can wear when they have their periods so that they can bleed all over people they don’t like. A portion of proceeds go to Planned Parenthood (of course).
And after then-Governor Mike Pence signed a bill in Indiana that restricted abortion, women called his office just to talk about their periods.
In Oregon, a Planned Parenthood broke up a pro-life protest when she made a sign about yeast infections that included a smiling clitoris and stood between a family with children and chanted “yeast infections!”
And go to any abortion rally and you are bound to find uterus pillows, people dressed as vaginas, and who knows what else.
The Texas law is about treating tiny humans with the dignity they deserve. The Charlotte Lozier Institute released a report this week detailing violations of multiple fetal disposal laws in Indiana, South Carolina, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Utah and Texas.
Some examples of findings detailed methods used to dispose of the remains of aborted babies that were somehow deemed legal by abortion facilities and waste disposal companies, like “flushing fetal body parts through the garbage disposal leading into the sewer system; dumping fetal remains into an auger along with medical waste and grinding them together; and having the fetal remains transported across state lines to another state’s dumpsters.”
Three Planned Parenthoods in Ohio were caught illegally dumping fetal remains. Planned Parenthood in South Carolina was fined over $50,000 for breaking fetal disposal laws and dumping remains in a public landfill.
The abortion industry is aware it has a problem of what to do with a baby after the abortion. In fact, that very topic was addressed at a NARAL conference:
All humans deserve to be treated with the inherent dignity they possess, both preborn and born, which means the pro-life movement must be compassionate and loving to the mother in trying to help her to choose life, and also support laws like the one in Texas.
After all, if the abortion industry and Satanists are against the law, it’s certainly best to be on the opposing side.
