This is so evil!
Choice42 founder and Canadian pro-life advocate Laura Klassen posted a photo of the Satanic Temple’s billboard campaign. The group purchased at least three billboards in the United States advocating for abortion rights as a religious ritual.
The billboards are in Dallas, Houston, and Miami.
“Pregnancy complications are the sixth most common cause of death among women between the ages of 20 and 34,” the billboard states. “Our religious abortion ritual averts many state restrictions.”
Here’s a photo of the billboard below:
Klassen’s post reads, “Wow. So [The Satanic Temple] is actually promoting their ‘religious ritual’ now. Doesn’t that speak volumes about what abortion is?”
According to the Dallas Observer, Satanic Temple spokesperson Sydney Goodwin said their abortion ritual “provides spiritual comfort and feelings of self-worth during what some consider to be a difficult time.”
“It’s a process to provide spiritual sustenance in a satanic way,” Goodwin said.
Catholic Church teaching on abortion:
“Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception. From the first moment of his existence, a human being must be recognized as having the rights of a person – among which is the inviolable right of every innocent being to life.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2270)
“Since the first century, the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion. This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable. Direct abortion, that is to say, abortion willed either as an end or a means, is gravely contrary to the moral law…” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2271)
Catholic Church teaching on Satanism
“All forms of divination are to be rejected: recourse to Satan or demons, conjuring up the dead or other practices falsely supposed to “unveil” the future. Consulting horoscopes, astrology, palm reading, interpretation of omens and lots, the phenomena of clairvoyance, and recourse to mediums all conceal a desire for power over time, history, and, in the last analysis, other human beings, as well as a wish to conciliate hidden powers. They contradict the honor, respect, and loving fear that we owe to God alone.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2116)
