A Texas pro-lifer says the Satanic Temple is spreading false information in their latest campaign to promote abortion.
A Satanist group has commissioned large highway billboards in two Texas cities, Garland and Houston, as well as in Miami, Florida, first of all claiming they have a religious right to abortion and that abortion saves lives.
"Even the very liberal Supreme Court decades ago said that people do not have a religious right to abortion," responds Joe Pojman of Texas Alliance for Life. "And their facts are entirely wrong; every pregnancy-related death is a terrible tragedy, but the reality is those are very rare. And unlike the claims of these Satanists, it is not a leading cause of death for women of any age."
As for the claim that abortion saves lives, the pro-lifer points out that every successful abortion ends the life of a child in the womb, and he submits that killing preborn children is the Satanists' modern-day form of child sacrifice.
"It's very frightening that these people think that taking the life of an unborn child is somehow a religious right or it should be part of some kind of weird and terrible religious service," Pojman submits. "It goes against everything we hold dear in our country. Unborn children should be protected by law; their deaths should not be sanctioned by law."
While members of the Satanic Temple consider child sacrifice to affirm their faith, Pojman points out that it is actually considered a crime against humanity.
