COLUMBUS, Ohio (ChurchMilitant.com) - A documentary produced by seasoned pro-life advocates is exposing the link between abortion and Satanism, and shows how satanists are becoming emboldened and violent in their support for the killing of the unborn.
Abortion: A Doctrine of Demons will be released on November 7 on Created Equal Films' YouTube channel. Created Equal was founded to ensure a new generation of pro-life advocates are informed and equipped to continue the fight for the rights of the unborn. Created Equal does this through its Justice Rides and Jumbotron advocacy, where young pro-lifers bravely advocate for the sanctity of life on college campuses.
Church Militant spoke with Created Equal founder and president Mark Harrington, who said Created Equal's staff has been "increasingly harassed by abortion activists who overtly identify as Satanists."
In 2017, TFP Student Action volunteers documented pro-abortion supporters they encountered at Millersville University in Pennsylvania. They reported the students "had a different appearance: face piercings, pentagrams, Satanic symbols and explicit language."
TFP Student Action reported the pro-aborts became more and more enraged by their presence, and their screaming became "louder and more sordid."
"They screamed 'Love Satan!' as they shivered with rage," reported TFP.
"Abortion advocates are far more honest and open about their true beliefs than ever before, and are increasingly unashamed of admitting publicly that they support killing babies," Harrington said. "And those who love death are often quick to embrace Satanism's tenets."
According to the Satanic Temple, there are seven fundamental tenets of Satanism, and the one that directly applies to abortion is "One's body is inviolable, subject to one's own will alone."
Satanists defend abortion access as a worthy form of worship because of this tenet. "Satanists' support of preborn child-killing allows them to gain access to abortion advocates for recruiting purposes," he said.
"The Satanic doctrine of absolute autonomy over one's own destiny has become the pro-abortion rallying cry of 'My body, my choice,'" Harrington explained.
Harrington said Created Equal hopes to shed light on how the abortion issue isn't only a political issue or one that can be corrected through education efforts. "Abortion is a spiritual battle at its core," he said. "By creating Abortion: A Doctrine of Demons, we hope to awaken a sleeping Church to the spiritual battle we face."
"Satanism inspires rebellion against the one true God and Savior Jesus Christ," he noted. "Satan is viewed as the ultimate rebel against authority and absolute truth. Anarchy will be the result."
Satanists themselves note the importance of abortion to the spiritual life. In an interview with The Lepanto Institute , former satanist-turned-Catholic Zachary King said:
In Satanism, killing something or the death of something is the most effective way of getting your spell accomplished. As far as trying to get satan's approval, to give you something that you want, killing something is the best way to go. Killing something is the ultimate offering to satan, and if you can kill an unborn, that is his ultimate goal.
King admitted he participated in 14 ritualist abortions, some inside abortion mills. He said they were often well-attended, even by local politicians:
In one instance, the one asking for the spell was the mayor of the town. He came to us because he wanted to pass some ordinance for his town, and he had tried it two or three times and it never went through. He had been a member of the coven for quite some time. He had tried every legal avenue to get this thing through, and it never worked, so he got somebody to agree to have an abortion and for it to happen at our satanic coven and during a night where we could do the abortion and do the spell at the same time.
Harrington dispelled criticism from pro-abortion supporters who deny any support of Satanism by explaining that with their arguments for abortion, they are also advocating for satanic doctrine.
"Abortion supporters share one of their main tenants — absolute bodily autonomy. Therefore, they may not worship Satan directly but share a close resemblance to Satanism's overall worldview," Harrington noted.
Created Equal Films is also documenting other efforts to disrupt the abortion industry. "We are updating their documentary on the weak link of the abortion industry: medical waste companies," he explained.
Project Weak Link was started in 2016 after abortionists themselves admitted that the companies that haul and dispose of aborted fetal remains are the "weak link" in the abortion industry.
According to Project Weak Link's website, "The abortion industry does not exist by itself. It is deeply ingrained in cultural institutions, norms, and economies."
"To end abortion," it continues, "we must decrease the industry's relevance and socially and financially isolating it from other industries and organizations will help us do exactly that."
Abortion: A Doctrine of Demons will be released on Nov. 7.
