Picture Make A Point in the Fight for Life

Print Friendly and PDF

As you may or may not know, the battle against Roe v. Wade in the States is going much better than its equivalent in Canada, where we have the dubious distinction of being one of only 3 countries in the world with absolutely no law governing or restricting abortion.  (The other two are China and North Korea.)
You can be encouraged in your fight by hearing about some success here.  A campaign is underway to circulate pictures of aborted babies so that people can actually see the hard facts that they otherwise emotionally distance themselves from by using abstract words like “tissue”, “cells”, or “fetus”.
This is making a difference.  Just like what happened with the Gosnell case, public attitudes are shifting slightly, and now even the media is occasionally getting into the conversation.

This short piece outlines what they’re doing right, and the effect it is having here.

Watch: Abortion Supporters Chant ‘Hail Satan!’

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.
