What have we, the American People come to?
Update on the bottom of this post…….
The following story is a very sad statement to who we are as a people. I realize the pro-life vs. pro-choice issue is a hot topic and brings out great emotional reactions yet this is surprising even to me. Have we become so hateful and disrespectful to our fellow man/woman that any action that justifies the goal? At what lengths will we go to getting our way in a controversy? This story speaks for itself so I won’t talk about it much, but it raises more questions than what they are arguing about. My questions are:
- Are these people all really Satanist ?
- Are they doing this only to disrespect a person of faith?
- Do other pro-choice people condone and think it is fine to conduct themselves in such a manor?
- Is this abortion fight really a battle between good and evil, or in this case God and Satan?
- If they represent the “Left/Progressive” point of view, would other Progressives go to this length?
I don’t know the answer to any of my questions here, perhaps someone could fill me in. To me it just looks like plain meanness and the people doing this have no feeling for another human being that does not agree with their point of view. How far would they go if the police were not there to keep the peace?
If I had no point of view on this matter and perhaps was an atheist, after watching this (there is video also I could not bring here but you can find it you search) and reading what happened I would not want to have anything to do with this group of pro-choice people at all. not because of abortion or God/Satan but just the way they treat other people and the way they try to make their point in such an aggressive way. Maybe they were coached to protest this bill like that, who knows.
Watch: Abortion Supporters Chant ‘Hail Satan!’ While Pro-Life Activists Sing ‘Amazing Grace’ Outside Texas Capitol
Jul. 2, 201311:44pm
The abortion battle in Texas was still raging Tuesday as both abortion supporters and pro-life activists flooded the State Capitol to make their voices heard. The Texas House and Senate reconvened briefly for a special session called by Gov. Rick Perry.
One of the more bizarre tactics used by pro-abortion activists involved chanting “Hail Satan!” to harass a pro-life crowd as they sang “Amazing Grace.”
Texas blogger Adam Cahm was able to capture the “Hail Satan” chant on video. Watch it here:
“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,” he writes. “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…”
Obviously, it is much more likely that the abortion supporters were chanting “Hail Satan!” to mock pro-lifers rather than actually hailing Lucifer, but anything is possible.
And there was plenty of discussion about “Hail Satan” on Twitter. Twitchy has the details.
The pro-abortion crowd also brought some really interesting signs to the rally (Some are offensive):
A recess was called for the Texas Legislature until July 9.
The proposed bill would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, require that the procedure be performed at ambulatory surgical centers, mandate that doctors who perform abortions obtain admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles and that even nonsurgical abortions take place in a surgical center.
Only five out of 42 clinics in Texas qualify as ambulatory surgical centers and they are in major metropolitan areas. Many clinics would need to relocate to meet ventilation requirements and to have the space required for operating rooms and hallways.
Similar measures have passed in other states, but many are tied up in court. Mississippi’s only abortion clinic remains open pending a federal lawsuit over the requirement for doctors to have admitting privileges.
Unhinged! Crowd wears diapers to fling poo
Attempt to assault with urine, tampons, maxi-pads, bricks, flashing private parts

(Warning: This article contains details of antics and statements by pro-abortion activists that may disturb some readers.)
AUSTIN – Texas police have confiscated numerous jars of feces and urine, paint, tampons, maxi-pads and even bricks that pro-abortion activists had planned to throw at pro-life lawmakers who are preparing to pass a late-term abortion ban in the state, according to reports.
The protesters have littered the state Capitol building with orange papers shaped like footprints that state, “Maternal death from illegal abortion.”
“Stand with Texas Women” protesters have been spotted wearing diapers filled with toilet paper they presumably intended to throw at members of the Senate. Several witnesses confirmed that toilet paper disappeared from most women’s restrooms at the Capitol, and pro-abortion activists were seen stuffing bags with tampons, fecal matter, urine and other items.
The Texas Department of Safety was contacted with the information, and has since been performing searches of all bags and other containers, forming large lines outside of the State Senate chamber with trash cans. The department issued a statement Friday about the items it had confiscated from the protesters:
“The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) today received information that individuals planned to use a variety of items or props to disrupt legislative proceedings at the Texas Capitol.
“Therefore for safety purposes, DPS recommended to the Texas Senate that all bags be inspected prior to allowing individuals to enter the Senate gallery, which the Texas Senate authorized.
“During these inspections, DPS officers have thus far discovered one jar suspected to contain urine, 18 jars suspected to contain feces, and three bottles suspected to contain paint. All of these items – as well as significant quantities of feminine hygiene products, glitter and confetti possessed by individuals – were required to be discarded; otherwise those individuals were denied entry into the gallery.
“In the interest of the safety and security of Texas legislators and the general public, these inspections will continue until the conclusion of Senate business.”
When the state Senate prepared to cast its vote on the late-term abortion ban, LifeNews reported pro-abortion mobs planned to throw tampons and pads at pro-life legislators.
The protesters also threatened to “flash their lady parts” at lawmakers, according to Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood abortion business director.
Some shouted, “F— the church!”
WND has also been informed that many of the pro-choice protesters are from other states.
“Orange shirts,” as they’ve been called by many observers, have been arriving on buses at the West gate entrance of the Texas Capitol since 1 a.m., said Michelle Smith, state director for Concerned Women of America.
Morgan McComb, a citizen pro-life activist, said she’s met hundreds of protesters who are from “other states.” A requirement of committee testimony is that those speaking have a Texas driver’s license. In spite of larger numbers, those giving testimony against the legislation barely exceeded 1,000 people, said Morgan. Those speaking for the legislation numbered more than 2,000.
Some pro-abortion protesters were reportedly paid for their antics. An advertisement on Craigslist.org sought full-time activists to earn $1,300-$2,200 a month to “educate the public and identify new supporters to protect reproductive rights.”
Pro-life crowds, who had been praising God with worship songs during a rally, said pro-abortion protesters “forced their way to the front and started to blast music to disrupt while dancing with vile and sexually explicit signs with children present.”
