It Turns Out Satan Is Pro-Life

2802da9bbca77c969204b1da4725ab8bTim Stanley writes in the Telegraph:

Earlier this week, I wrote about pro-abortion activists chanting “Hail Satan!” in an effort to drown out a chorus of Amazing Grace at a rally in Texas. Tongue-in-cheek, I wrote, “I’m guessing that even the Horned One would regard association with the US abortion industry as bad PR.” I meant it as a joke but, er, it turns out I was right.

A writer at the WND website spotted that the UK Church of Satan Tweeted this after the story broke:

Unfortunate to see Satan’s name used in such a diabolical manner. Another example of what ‘Satanism’ doesn’t represent. #HailSatan

Yep, it turns out that the UK Church of Satan is prolife. They later Tweeted, “Why wouldn’t Satanism be pro-life? What else is there? We are all free to make choices. Agreeable or not.

I Wish My Mother Had Aborted Me

Lynn Beisner writes at Role / Reboot:

If there is one thing that anti-choice activists do that makes me see red, it is when they parade out their poster children: men, women, and children who were “targeted for abortion.” They tell us “these people would not be alive today if abortion had been legal or if their mothers had made a different choice.”

In the past couple of months, I have read two of these abortion deliverance stories that have been particularly offensive. The first story is one propagated by Rebecca Kiessling, the poster child for the no exceptions in cases of rape or incest. On her website Kiessling says that every time we say that abortion should be allowed at least in the case of rape or incest we are saying to her: “If I had my way, you’d be dead right now.” She goes onto say, “I absolutely would have been aborted if it had been legal in Michigan when I was an unborn child, and I can tell you that it hurts [when people say that abortion should be legal.]”

The second story was on the Good Men Project this week.

New GOP Bill Would Deny Abortions To Women, Even In Life-Threatening Situations

Signing of the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban on November 5, 2003

Signing of the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban on November 5, 2003

“A new version of a related bill would allow hospitals to deny abortion care to a woman even if her life is in danger.” I don’t want to begin the long list or reasons as to why this would violate woman’s right to choose, their body and their life. It also asks doctors to go against the Hippocratic oath: “Most especially must I tread with care in matters of life and death. If it is given to me to save a life, all thanks. But it may also be within my power to take a life; this awesome responsibility must be faced with great humbleness and awareness of my own frailty. Above all, I must not play at God.” Via Raw Story:

Engulfed by criticisms from women’s advocates, House Republicans have reportedly given up on legislative language that would deny some rape victims the ability to seek federally-assisted abortion coverage.

Rubber Fetus Ban Taken To Court

Rubber fetuses given out by pro-life students at high schools in Roswell, New Mexico were banned because they were “distracting the educational environment.” The want for the ban to be overturned has created a court case bringing to question where the first amendment lies in the situation. Matt Reynolds of OnPoint details:

The suspensions of seven pro-life students at two Roswell, N.M., high schools for distributing rubber fetuses have given birth to a lawsuit that takes the First Amendment protections for student speech into uncharted territory.

The students, who belong to a religious youth group called Relentless in Roswell, sued school officials last month, alleging their suspensions were unconstitutional. They were disciplined in February after they handed out hundreds of fetus dolls at Goddard and Roswell High Schools before classes.

The complaint describes the dolls as two inches in length and “the actual size and weight of a developing unborn child at 12 weeks’ gestation.” Attached to the dolls was a verse from the Bible: “For you formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb.
