‘Hail Satan!’: The new ‘pro-choice’ mantra


By: Matt Barber

In the war between life and death, all eyes are on Texas as the Lone Star  State legislature is poised to pass a sweeping late-term abortion ban. Gov. Rick  Perry has pledged to sign the bill into law. The lines have been clearly drawn  surrounding this progress toward equality and civil rights for pre-born  Americans. Not surprisingly, as the pro-abortion side loses legislative battle  after legislative battle, its “true colors” are coming into focus. Those colors  are darker than many might have imagined.

During all civil rights struggles there occurs, it seems, some flashpoint in  time that indelibly sears into the mind of a culture, with clarity, the profound  realization that one side represents good and the other side evil. Who can  forget the images in the 1960s of law enforcement officials turning the hoses –  and the dogs – on peaceful African-America demonstrators for merely petitioning  their government for racial equality? Millions of fence-sitters across America  witnessed this gross injustice on television, sat up in their chairs and finally  said: “This is wrong. I will not stand for it.”

Although, our pro-abortion media will not likely give it much coverage, a  similar such flashpoint of clarity occurred this past Tuesday in the Texas State House as pro-abortion activists, throughout  the day, shouted “Hail Satan!” in an effort to drown out pro-life speeches and an impromptu  rendering of “Amazing Grace.” CNN’s Josh Rubin confirmed this astonishing  display by tweeting on  site: “Crowd of anti-abortion activists giving speeches while a group of people  chant hail Satan in the background.”

I would like to take a moment to pause and personally thank our Satan-hailing  friends for their brutally wicked honesty. What may have seemed, at the time, a  glib bid to mock the peaceful Christians in attendance has, instead,  demonstrated to the world exactly from whom (or what) derives the revolting  inhumanity that is all things “pro-choice.”

Understandably, many leftist now complain that this frank display of  “pro-choice” allegiance to the prince of darkness has hurt the multi-billion  dollar baby-killing biz. They’re right. It has. It’s blown away the smokescreen  of euphemistic “pro-choice” rhetoric and propaganda to expose, naked beneath,  that which lies at abortion’s inglorious core: Death, death and more death.

Indeed, the very Satan they hail was the first “pro-choicer.” While Jesus is  “the way, the truth and the life,” Satan is the end, the lie and death itself.  While Christ is the “author of life,” Satan is the author of abortion. Our  “pro-choice” friends in Texas have now revealed that they at least intuitively  recognize this reality.

Matthew 12:34-37 admonishes, “For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.  A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and an evil man  brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him. But I tell you that  everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word  they have spoken. For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you  will be condemned.”

Do you consider yourself “pro-choice”? Perhaps it’s time to reconsider. When  “pro-choicers” find themselves shouting “hail Satan!” over a chorus of “Amazing  Grace” at a gathering geared toward saving babies, maybe it’s time to dust off  that ol’ worldview and give it a second look.

Scripture warns: “The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with  how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and  wonders that serve the lie, and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who  are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be  saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will  believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the  truth but have delighted in wickedness.” (2 Thessalonians 2:10-12)

If you answer to “pro-choice,” you’re only deceiving yourself, my friend.  You’re “delighting in wickedness.” Pro-choice to do what? Pro-choice to  dismember alive a baby girl in her mother’s womb. That’s wicked. That’s evil –  objective, absolute evil – every time and without exception.

That’s abortion.

Abortion is death. If you’re “pro-choice,” you’re pro-abortion and,  consequently, pro-death. As the babies you should be protecting perish, so, too,  do you perish. You are perishing in the spirit, which is a fate worse than  physical death. It’s forever.

The precious aborted babies you refuse to defend – the babies you condemn to  death – will see God. Ultimately, they will have eternal life. But because you  “refuse to love the truth” and “delight in wickedness,” Scripture warns that,  unless you repent and are saved, you will not. If you believe that this is about  “women’s reproductive rights,” then you’re laboring “under a powerful delusion.”  You “serve the lie.”

Whether you know it or not, you serve Satan.

Open your eyes.

As goes the refrain, “I once was lost, but now I’m found, was blind, but now  I see.” You can still be found. You can still see. A big step in the right  direction is to first admit this painful truth: “Pro-choice” is pro-death.

Join the right side of history. Join the side of good over evil. Join the  side of life over death.

Be pro-life.
