‘Hail Satan!’: The New ‘Pro-Choice’ Mantra

shutterstock_133423673In the war between life and death, all eyes are on Texas as the Lone Star State legislature is poised to pass a sweeping late-term abortion ban. Gov. Rick Perry has pledged to sign the bill into law. The lines have been clearly drawn surrounding this progress toward equality and civil rights for pre-born Americans. Not surprisingly, as the pro-abortion side loses legislative battle after legislative battle, its “true colors” are coming into focus. Those colors are darker than many might have imagined.

During all civil rights struggles there occurs, it seems, some flashpoint in time that indelibly sears into the conscience of a culture, with clarity, the profound realization that one side represents good and the other side evil. Who can forget the images in the 1960s of law enforcement officials turning the hoses – and the dogs – on peaceful African-America demonstrators for merely petitioning their government for racial equality? Millions of fence-sitters across America witnessed this gross injustice on television, sat up in their chairs and finally said: “This is wrong. I will not stand for it.”

Although, our pro-abortion media will not likely give it much coverage, a similar such flashpoint of clarity occurred this past Tuesday in the Texas State House as pro-abortion activists, throughout the day, shouted “Hail Satan!” in an effort to drown out pro-life speeches and an impromptu rendering of “Amazing Grace.” CNN’s Josh Rubin confirmed this astonishing display bytweeting on site: “Crowd of anti-abortion activists giving speeches while a group of people chant hail Satan in the background.”

I would like to take a moment to pause and personally thank our Satan-hailing friends for their brutally wicked honesty. What may have seemed, at the time, a glib bid to mock the peaceful Christians in attendance has, instead, demonstrated to the world exactly from whom (or what) derives the revolting inhumanity that is all things “pro-choice.”

Understandably, many leftist now complain that this frank display of “pro-choice” allegiance to the prince of darkness has hurt the multi-billion dollar baby-killing biz. They’re right. It has. It’s blown away the smokescreen of euphemistic “pro-choice” rhetoric and propaganda to expose, naked beneath, that which lies at abortion’s inglorious core: Death, death and more death.

Indeed, the very Satan they hail was the first “pro-choicer.” While Jesus is “the way, the truth and the life,” Satan is the end, the lie and death itself. While Christ is the “author of life,” Satan is the author of abortion. Our “pro-choice” friends in Texas have now revealed that they at least intuitively recognize this reality.

Matthew 12:34-37 admonishes, “For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of. A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him. But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken. For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.”

Do you consider yourself “pro-choice”? Perhaps it’s time to reconsider. When “pro-choicers” find themselves shouting “hail Satan!” over a chorus of “Amazing Grace” at a gathering geared toward saving babies, maybe it’s time to dust off that ol’ worldview and give it a second look.

Scripture warns: “The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.” (2 Thessalonians 2:10-12)

If you answer to “pro-choice,” you’re only deceiving yourself, my friend. You’re “delighting in wickedness.” Pro-choice to do what? Pro-choice to dismember alive a baby girl in her mother’s womb. That’s wicked. That’s evil – objective, absolute evil – every time and without exception.

That’s abortion.

Abortion is death. If you’re “pro-choice,” you’re pro-abortion and, consequently, pro-death. As the babies you should be protecting perish, so, too, do you perish. You are perishing in the spirit, which is a fate worse than physical death. It’s forever.

The precious aborted babies you refuse to defend – the babies you condemn to death – will see God. Ultimately, they will have eternal life. But because you “refuse to love the truth” and “delight in wickedness,” Scripture warns that, unless you repent and are saved, you will not. If you believe that this is about “women’s reproductive rights,” then you’re laboring “under a powerful delusion.” You “serve the lie.”

Whether you know it or not, you serve Satan.

Open your eyes.

As goes the refrain, “I once was lost, but now I’m found, was blind, but now I see.” You can still be found. You can still see. A big step in the right direction is to first admit this painful truth: “Pro-choice” is pro-death.

Join the right side of history. Join the side of good over evil. Join the side of life over death.

Be pro-life.

    Precisely, theirs is a religion unto itself, and that is why the “Queen of Pro-Choice” calls their stance a “sacred ground” on which she has established her queendom for Satan and his lot.

  • Dennietoo

    Great article! Let’s hope they (pro-choicers) see the light of GOD’S graces and come to HIM for forgiveness and salvation.

  • JMC

    One way or another, the truth will eventually come out. Every time. It finally has here.

  • the dude

    Correct me if im wrong, but dont unbaptized babies go to hell? According to catholic dictrine anyways. So you need to fact check your blog against the bible….. the “murdered babies” arent in heaven with eternal life next to god. They are clearly burning in catholic hell. Yall are just mean to send them there.

  • Lee

    For those who are Pro-Life, and find that they are not able to get out to abortion sites to work others must not forget that Jesus ask us to pray. Prayer is the fuel that sets the devil on his heels and his workers raised up to go out and forward from his evil work. Pray for the misguided, that their hearts be opened to the Truth.

  • pbs

    This is a very misguided understanding of both Catholic teaching and the Bible. Paragraph 1261 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church (official teaching) states that “the great mercy of God who desires that all men should be saved, and Jesus’ tenderness toward children which caused him to say: ‘Let the children come to me, do not hinder them,’ allow us to hope that there is a way of salvation for children who have died without Baptism.”Hopefully, this clears up your misunderstanding. God bless.

  • catholicexchange

    Yes, you are wrong–Catholic doctrine does not teach (nor has it ever taught) that unbaptized babies go to hell. And this wouldn’t be a fact anyone could “check against the Bible”, regardless, since the Bible doesn’t tell us “where unbaptized babies” go.

  • pnyikos

    I don’t know of any Catholic who thinks that, but I’ve encountered a number of evangelical protestants who do. One didn’t mince words: he told me in e-mail that aborted unbaptized babies are “cast into the lake of fire.” I answered that I felt sorry for him, that he had such a pessimistic view of things, not believing in God’s mercy despite being staunchly pro-life.

  • pnyikos

    I take it you are talking about Nancy Pelosi. I wonder whether she has automatically excommunicated herself (latae sentiae) by espousing heresy. That, and assisting at abortion (which I don’t think she has done) are two of the ways automatic excommunication occurs.

  • pnyikos

    Yes, “pro-choice” is not a good word for this kind of behavior. While “pro-abortion” invites smart-alecky literal-minded retorts, “abortion-friendly” is probably a term they cannot object to.

  • BillinJax

    You guessed it, the self proclaimed doctor of Catholic doctrine Nancy (knows better than the Pope) Pelosi is allowed the silence of most of our shepherds to preach to, reason for, and educate the laity regarding contraception and abortion. Save for a few bishops like Chaput and priests like Fr. Pavone who are unafraid to publicly admonish her and other celebrated politicians that use the national liberal media which
    is dedicated to the successful reign of Barack Obama and his secular agenda when they attempt to cloak his anti-Christian legalization of immorality and the Democratic Party’s worn out social justice policies disguised as a form of public charity on the part of its power hungry political machinery.
    That should clear up any doubts to who we were originally referring
    to and what she is doing.

  • Richard III

    Martyrdom is sometimes referred to as “Baptism by Blood”. I’m wondering (I do not know this for sure, and could well be mistaken) if abortion is a form of martyrdom, in which case all aborted babies would be baptized and therefore go to Heaven.

  • Jake

    I know a family is that very pro-life, to the point of being obnoxious about it, and I never complain or avoid them. You see, in addition to having several wonderful children of their own, they have adopted several unwanted children. They live their beliefs in a way that should inspire us all.
    In my opinion, if YOU do not take a child into your home and your hearts, if YOU do not give an unwed mother or rape victim a viable option to abortion, or if YOU don’t do something, anything for these babies that YOU demand not be aborted, then YOU need to shut the hell up!
    I’m pretty much pro-life but I’m also a man, and as a man, I will never have to make that choice or live with the consequences of having an abortion. It would be hypocritical of me to tell a woman what to do, much less use the laws of the land to force thousands of women to conform to my belief system, when I will never face making that decision. So, all my fellow men out there, you can shut the hell up too! And yes, I am including every man in the Catholic Church, starting with the pope in that statement.

  • Lee

    Dear Jake,
    You,the man,are very much a part of a decision(the woman)is making. And, because the man and the woman conceive the child, nestled in the womb where God intended, there are three human beings who suffer from the result of an ABORTION. There is no acceptable excuse; and we who are Pro-Life or Pro-Abortion will answer for our work. Jesus, Mary, I Love You,save souls.Amen

  • Jake

    Dear Lee,

    I get what you are saying. The mother-to-be may or may not evaluate the father as part of her decision making process. However, a woman doesn’t have to inform the man that she is pregnant, much less tell him she is having an abortion. (We, in the USA, are getting close to the point where the majority of births are out of wedlock, which is a whole nother discussion) And even if the man knows about the abortion, it is not going to have the same impact on him that it has on the woman. I stand by my original statements. Thanks for chiming in.

  • Mary


    Trust in God’s great mercy. Pray the rosary NOW!

  • DavyJB

    Jake you may be in yet another one of these “I’m pro life but…(fill in some form of twisted rational)” folks that I have a lot more trouble understanding than the pro aborts. So you’re okay with letting a woman decide to kill her child inside the womb, and for the law of the land to facilitate that, but not (I would gather) okay with her deciding to drown the child moments after birth?

    And for the record, there are enough parents, crisis pregnancy centers, and organizations to ensure the care of every single one of the 3,500 plus babies killed every day in this country if they were given the chance to be born.

  • Lee

    The lessons of history should be our greatest teacher, and yet here we are state after state,country after country indorsing,encouraging and supporting unjustified DEATH of those brothers and sisters, in Jesus Christ’s name, who are inconvenient for a society that is actually full of LOVE and COMPASSION.Why are we following the work of the devil, only to look back and wonder how this could have been allowed just as we do when we read the history or hear yet the horrors of Hitler? Teach your babies, that have survived the culture of DEATH, to believe in the Truth and the culture of LIFE for all human beings from conception to natural death, because we are, today, preparing for our own destination.

  • Jake


    I’m not okay with abortion but I’m not okay with forcing my beliefs on other people and letting others deal with the consequences. That is hypocrisy and Jesus had a thing or two to say about hypocrites if I remember my bible lessons correctly.

    Ideally, a woman would never have to consider having an abortion but we don’t live in an ideal world. Saying there are enough parents, crisis pregnancy centers, and organizations to ensure the care of every baby that is aborted is a cop-out. If a person is not willing to put his money (and time and energy) where his mouth is, he needs to shut up. If one proclaims the sanctity of life but is unwilling to invest 18+ years in rearing and loving a child that would otherwise be aborted, then one is being hypocritical at best and utterly stupid at worst.

    You have trouble understanding me? I have trouble understanding anyone who that doesn’t have the courage or strength to follow through with his convictions. At least I don’t go around condemning people who don’t do what I am unwilling or unable to do.

  • CDville

    You are assuming that the people who speak up yet have not adopted an unwanted child have done nothing. The money to support those crisis pregnancy centers comes from our pockets, and we are the ones manning them, sorting donated baby supplies, assisting frightened mothers who have decided against abortion. And did you see the story about all the families who volunteered to adopt a Down Syndrome baby when the need was known?
    As for forcing beliefs, when it comes to saving lives, we have a duty, a responsibility to do what we can. While the Obama administration is forcing their beliefs on the American taxpayer to pay for abortions around the world, we are trying to save lives. I am certain you would force your beliefs on an attacker, for example, if you witnessed a mugging. We are similarly defending the unborn from attack.

  • Eliz33

    A real man does not stand by while a stronger person kills a helpless innocent person. To say “I’m not okay with forcing my beliefs on other people…” is a cop-out.

    Jake, apart from the anecdote about the extraordinarily caring pro-choice neighbors, your post could’ve been written by me at any point in my life since my early 20’s till recently. It’s my old line, verbatim. But I can’t support it anymore.

    To me, it comes down to one thing: do you believe or do you not believe that the aborted being in the womb of the mother is a human being or not.

    Having seen a photo (taken at a Canadian teaching hospital) of a black plastic trash bag full of aborted babies, I had to adjust my priorities. I’ve since seen similar photos taken in the USA, confirming the horrible reality. Not only were the murdered victims clearly human, they had facial expressions proclaiming the suffering that attended their gruesome deaths.

    Sure, as a man, you won’t have to risk your life to give birth, and your sense of fairness says you therefore should just keep your mouth shut. This sense that I should defer to the woman’s right to decide was compounded, in my own case, by the fact that women I knew and cared about had had abortions. But if you believe that helpless humans are being slaughtered, how can you just let it happen and pretend that your silence isn’t a vote for their deaths? It’s a genetic fact that the majority of children conceived are female, not male. So much for this being a “women’s rights” issue. Are females to be deprived of the right to life based on their age?

    I wish this were an easier issue to cope with and one that didn’t require me to stand up and state my position. But I’ve arrived at the belief that this epidemic of murder is not only affecting millions of unborn but viable infants; it’s also a moral plague that’s undermining the spiritual health of our nation and our world. When a human’s right to life becomes a conditional matter — you’re entitled to live if you’re the right sex, the right age, in an acceptable state of health (or intelligence or financial stability) — what’s to stop the state from deciding whether your ideas, or political leanings, or spiritual beliefs, or social associations, or genetic predispositions, compromise your right to live?

    I can’t tell you what you should believe about the primary victims of abortion, whether you should affirm their humanity or not. But I must urge you to seek out the photographic evidence, which is readily attainable on the internet. When you’re satisfied that you understand the reality, then decide whether you can, in good conscience, call this mass-slaughter the “right” of another person because she’s a female and you’re not.
