Class: Pro-Abortion Protesters Mock Pro-Lifers With “Hail Satan” Chant

The fight over new abortion legislation in Texas took a turn into the absurd last night as a group of pro-abortion protesters responded to pro-lifers singing “Amazing Grace” with chants of “hail satan.”

In terms of winning the war for hearts and minds of the public, probably not a great move:

It’s been a very interesting day at the Texas State Capitol. Cahnman’s Musings hasn’t been following the hearing. Instead, we’ve been participating in the surrounding events. LetTexasSpeak has been doing a live broadcast from the rotunda where women have been sharing their abortion related testimonies. The pro-abortion crowd has responded with repeated chants of “hail Satan.” It’s taken us all day to get a video recording, but here it is … For the record: They’ve been doing this all day, this is just the first time we caught it on video.

    I think anyone that uses the term “the pro-abortion crowd” to describe a group who is advocating choice is not reporting in a fair manner. No one on the pro-choice side is running around advocating people have abortions for no reason. I think its fair to debate whether the option should be available but to say that those that advocate the option be available are advocating abortion is a neophyte view.

      Actually, that is explicitly what the Democrat party platform supports.

    • JackButler

      The term “pro-abortion” is more accurate that “pro-choice” or “pro-life”. After all who is “anti-choice” or “anti-life”. To call it “pro-choice” is a kind of “doublethink”.

      When they advocate “choice,” they know it means babies will die cruelly in abortuaries, so you cannot get away with claiming falsely they are not pro-abortion, as that is the outcome of the self-serving euphemism of “choice” – the cold blooded murder of a child.

      Feminist choice is a false cause for elitist social engineering
      the ideological blind are used as useful tools to hide behind.
      Margret Sanger was her name.
      Radical feminism was her game…..
      For it was in the name of women’s rights she swore………

      Does the term “Pro Murder Crowd” work better for you? Slice it, dice it, it is all the same meaning.

  • SingySongy

    Amazing Grace blows, it could really use a bit of that Ozzy flair. Why would anyone sing that in public? There’s no phrase too offensive if it gets those people to stop sing that wretched song.

    • Neiman

      Many decidedly unchristian people have used that song wrongly, without understanding and in wholly inappropriate circumstances. Mostly liberal nincompoops that do not know Christ of God’s Grace at all.

      Yet, the lyrics were written by John Newton a one-time wholly degenerate sea captain that ran slave ships, bought and sold human beings without any conscience and was so vile of speech that the even alcoholic, low life scum bag sailors on his ship avoided his company and even close proximity, they cringed at his evil expression of hatred for God. He was most worthy of hell. Yet, one day when sailing as a passenger on another ship that was being tossed about and broken apart by a violent storm, he was driven to his knees in fear of death and eternal damnation. It was such self recognition of his own grossly sinful nature and his justly deserving of everlasting punishment that in great humility and awe in the presence of God penned these precious words:

      “Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
      That saved a wretch like me.
      I once was lost but now am found,
      Was blind, but now I see.

      T’was Grace that taught my heart to fear.
      And Grace, my fears relieved.
      How precious did that Grace appear
      The hour I first believed.

      Through many dangers, toils and snares
      I have already come;

      ‘Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far
      and Grace will lead me home.

      When we’ve been here ten thousand years
      Bright shining as the sun.
      We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
      Than when we’ve first begun.”

      It was of the words of this song the late Johnny Cash said, “it is a confession without guile.” Newton emptied himself of all pride, there was no guile as he saw clearly his own wretched nature and felt such genuine praise for the Grace of God that would save him still, none of his faults, his gross sin withstanding.

        and the music from the mouths of the slaves he carried those many years. thanks Neiman for the bit of history and the words

  • SigFan

    Actually it sounds like they’re acknowledging and worshiping their leader. Only the Satanic would advocate for infanticide.

    • ProLifeSigSauerSuppressor

      ….or denying women the right to medical service they may need to actually survive. I’m with you buddy, Hail Satan. Let’s bust out the guns and show ‘em what pro-life is all about.

        • ProLifeSigSauerSuppressor

          How many pro-choicers actually encourage abortions?

          Less than 1%?

          • http://sayanythingblog.com Rob

            Who would someone who is pro-life encourage abortion?

          • ProLifeSigSauerSuppressor

            You wanna give that question another shot?

          • http://sayanythingblog.com Rob

            I think it’s a straight-forward question.

            Why would anyone who believes that life begins at conception be pro-abortion?

          How many women should die to save a fetus ?
          What’s an acceptable number of dead women ?
          <1% ,.08%, .05%, .01% ? ?

          • http://sayanythingblog.com Rob

            Zero women should die.

            But life is a complicated thing.

            How many people should die so that we can have roads and automobiles?

          • WOOF

            The difference is pro lifers chose which women

            shall be denied care and die .
            We don’t chose who dies to pave a road,

            those are accidents.

            what is an acceptable number of dead babies?

          • Neiman

            SigFan was correct, they are only praising their god, their moral/spiritual leader Satan.

            The only really grey area of abortion is when the baby, not “fetus” which self-serving label only dehumanizes the living child, truly risks the physical life of the mother. However, this number is so tiny, so infinitesimally fractional that they are not a very good argument for the Pro-Choice Crowd. Yet, to the extremely rare woman whose life is truly at risk, who would decide for her? In my day there was family, clergy and an extended network of people that could offer loving counsel. There are also many other facts such as the age of the baby in the womb and its viability that her legitimate doctors in a hospital would offer her to guide her in such a decision. This even applies to a Christian mother that is all too human and fears death or God’s Judgment.

            For that rare woman whose own child places her life at real risk, Christians can only offer prayers that she will be guided in the best path by the Lord and whether the mother is Christian or not, leave the the matter to the Lord.

            I am though reminded of many stories in the news over the years of some brave women that refused cancer treatment that would kill their child in the womb, willingly giving their own lives for their child. Would we not admire such love and feel regret for the women that coldly chooses to have her child slain in the womb? For all others that terminate the lives of their child because they were too lazy to refrain from sex outside marriage or take birth control measures or find that child inconvenient for their own lifestyle choices, I can only find disgust for their murders.

    The pro-“choice” crowd also used threats of violence against pro-life legislators and had their children hold signs with messages children shouldn’t be exposed to. These protesters were also paid by the Democrats. At least they’re being honest now by showing the American people just how demonic and perverted they really are.

    Why don’t you ever hear people who are “pro-choice” speak out against forced abortions in China?

    • Lianne

      China has actually backed -off the forced abortions somewhat because they slowly, very slowly realized that without girl babies growing up to be women there would be no more boy babies. They changed some law or cultural thing where woman can also inherit family estates, and are therefore, more valuable. If is always about the money.
