This past weekend, abortion supporters protested a pro-life rally at one of Michigan’s Planned Parenthood clinics, and some of these protestors were from the Satanic Temple of Detroit. Fox News reports that at the rally the Satanists had their members pour gallons of milk down their throat in a water-boarding type fashion.
The rally was a part of protests going on nationwide in response to eight videos showing Planned Parenthood’s top executives haggling over the cost of aborted babies’ body parts and discussing ways to alter procedures to obtain organs for harvesting. Shockingly, one of the newest videos catches the abortion company harvesting the brain of an aborted baby who was still alive.
Jex Blackmore from the Satanic Temple explained why they decided to hold the demonstration. He said, “…We opted to do a form of political theater because we feel very much that is what the opposition is doing. Milk to us is symbolic of motherhood and we feel clergy is promoting a form of theocracy in forcing women to adhere to their ethical guidelines.”
Pro-life advocate, Brad Smith, said the following about the Satanist’s presence at the event: “There were a few hundred Planned Parenthood protesters, but we were also joined by a few dozen Planned Parenthood supporters. It was an eclectic crowd and included a significant number of SATANISTS. There was a sign that read WITCHES FOR PLANNED PARENTHOOD.”
He added, “Toward the end of the event, the Satanists gathered together to perform what felt like a weird ritual. You can watch it in this news story by FOX 2 Detroit. What is so interesting in this video is how the women are subjected by the men. You certainly didn’t see any men subjecting women on their knees being waterboarded with milk where we were protesting. The same people who claim to be for women are openly denigrating the women. Well, my mom always used to tell me that You ARE the company You keep. Defenders of Planned Parenthood, this is the company you keep.”

Although the group’s ceremony was strange, it was not unprecedented considering their love and history with abortion. As LifeNews previously reported, many Satanists believe abortion is sacred and some participate in the procedures themselves. In fact, former Satanist Zachary King explained that participating in abortions is particularly important for Satanists because it is considered the best way to give an offering to Satan.
He said, “In Satanism, killing something or the death of something is the is the most effective way of getting your spell accomplished. As far as trying to get satan’s approval, to give you something that you want, killing something is the best way to go. Killing something is the ultimate offering to satan, and if you can kill an unborn, that is his ultimate goal.”
King was in the occult for 26-years and performed 141 ritual abortions. In an interview with the Lepanto Institute, he said high profile abortion facilities drew members of the occult because of the opportunity to perform ritual abortions. He also described his first experience performing a ritual abortion when he was only 14-years-old. King said the abortion took place in a farmhouse that was surprisingly cleaner than many of the actual abortion facilities he visited later.
He explained, “There was a woman in stirrups about to have a baby who was surrounded by 13 top members of our coven, which were all high priests and priestesses. I was inside the circle with the woman and the abortion doctor. All the adult members of my coven were there. There were several women kneeling on the floor, swaying back and forth chanting ‘our body and ourselves’ over and over again. Off to the side were several male members of our coven all chanting and praying.”
Apparently, King didn’t have to perform the actual abortion, he just had to insert the scalpel and get blood on his hands. The former Satanist did admit that particular abortion was the worst he had ever seen. He concluded, “…The doctor reached in, ripped the baby out and threw it onto the floor where these women were swaying. The women looked like they were possessed, and when the doctor threw the baby out to them, they cannibalized the baby.”
