Watch: Abortion Supporters Chant ‘Hail Satan!’ While Pro-Life Activists Sing ‘Amazing Grace’ Outside Texas Capitol

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.

While I don't think this kind of shock tactic is effective, its no different than pro-life people holding up signs (accurate and not) of aborted fetuses.  Those are also completely dramatized.

It is good that they are showing us what they really want.  Free abortion on demand.   They not only don't want to pay for their birth control, they want to be able to get abortions whenever they want and at taxpayers expense.

Well that was one group.  I am pro-choice and I don't want that.

But that is the way of the world today.....the Government (well those of us who pay taxes because the Government doesn't have its own money) pays for everything.

I don't know where people like that think the money for all this comes from.  But why should they care, I suppose, I am going to guess these particular folks are in the 40% who pay no Federal tax.

It is kind of funny how the entitlement mentality  can work, isn't it.   The more you give them, the  more they seem to want. It doesn't occur to most of them who is really paying for it.

Well....since the pro abortion group said Hail Satan and the pro lifers sang Amazing Grace, can they tell us what the Pro CHOICE group did ?
You know....pro choice, meaning we allow others to make their own decisions !

 Wherever you stand on this issue, the little girl holding the **** a senator poster makes me cringe. Her mother should be ashamed. She could easily have given her a less crass poster to hold. No indoctrination going on with that family, is there?

Nothing says more about a parent then their young daughter holding a sign that says, "If I wanted the government in my womb, I would f*** a senator." 

Really.  That's so sad.  What a terrible parent!
