Satanists rally to support Planned Parenthood, doused women in milk

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. At the rally the Satanists had their members pour gallons of milk down their throat in a water-boarding type fashion.

Jex Blackmore from the Satanic Temple explained why they decided to hold the demonstration.

“…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.”

The women held rope symbolizing being tied up as the milk was poured out. The one sign read: America is not a theocracy, End forced motherhood.”

The Planned Parenthood rally was a protests in response to investigative videos by Center For Medical Progress outing the organizations selling of aborted babies’ body parts and discussing ways to alter procedures to obtain organs for harvesting.

“The Satanic Temple strongly opposes the promotion of misinformation and believes that all people are entitled to make informed decisions about their health, family and future without coercion,” a statement on the Satanic Temple Facebook page says. “We will not remain voiceless when the philosophical and religious opinions of those in power are utilized to legislate morality. The attempt to do so violates American foundational values of freedom and liberty.”

According to the organization’s website, members aim to separate mysticism from religion, believe in neither God nor the Devil, use Satan to symbolize the true nature of humans, and support benevolence, individual liberty “practical common sense and justice” free from theology.
