In the face of growing pressure on Planned Parenthood after revelations that it was selling human body parts, the Satanic Temple has launched a pro-abortion crusade to come to the aid of America’s largest abortion provider.
The Satanic Temple, an organization that combats Christian influence in American society, has staged a series of counter-protests at pro-life rallies and filed a lawsuit against the state of Missouri on behalf of one of its members who had to wait 72 hours to get an abortion due to Missouri state law.
According to reports, legislators have passed nearly 300 abortion restrictions in the past five years, resulting in the closing of “hundreds of clinics.”
In what free speech advocates are calling a victory for freedom of the press, David Daleiden, the intrepid investigative reporter who unearthed Planned Parenthood’s misdeeds, has been exonerated from the charges brought by the abortion giant.
In a ruling earlier this week, Judge Diane Bull dismissed the charges against Daleiden after it was revealed that the office of District Attorney Devon Anderson was in collusion with Planned Parenthood in targeting Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress.
Similarly, many pro-life advocates have called for the resignation of California Attorney General Kamala Harris, who in April ordered the raid of Daleiden’s apartment, on learning that Kamala had received tens of thousands of dollars in political donations from Planned Parenthood.
In an interview this week, Daleiden said that “Planned Parenthood and their business partners know that the baby parts issue is the biggest scandal that they have ever faced and it’s the scandal that could take them down.”
Along with its counter-protests against pro-lifers, the Satanic Temple has launched a campaign against “informed consent” laws, which require that women seeking abortions be provided with informational materials regarding abortion. They urge women to claim exemption from “informed consent” materials, alleging a religious right not to receive such information.
Meanwhile, in her first address after clinching the Democrat Party presidential nomination, Hillary Clinton chose Planned Parenthood supporters as her target audience. In January, Clinton said, “I will always defend Planned Parenthood. And I will say – consistently and proudly – Planned Parenthood should be funded, supported, and appreciated; not undermined, misrepresented, and demonized.”
In protest to Clinton’s alliance with Planned Parenthood, a number of pro-life leaders issued a joint statement in which they noted that Planned Parenthood receives over $500 million in taxpayer money annually, and then “funnels tens of millions of dollars to candidates like Clinton to further its agenda and increase its bottom line.”

I seek first the kingdom of Christ because everything else in this world is perishing. All that I have is from God who is always faithful. I have worked hard all my life and will continue as long as God lends me breath. The mistakes and bad judgments I made in my life all stemmed from me trying to work things out by myself. I have learned the hard way that the victory over all of my problems and the answers to all of my desires lie solely in my Savior, Jesus Christ.
It is now my desire to share the words that God gives me to encourage and give hope to others who need the strength that only faith in Christ can give.
