The late Fr. Gabriele Amorth, the Vatican’s former chief exorcist, once observed: "God never rejects his creatures. Therefore, even though they broke with God, Satan and his angels maintain their power and rank (thrones, dominions, principalities, powers, and so on) even if they use them for evil purposes. Saint Augustine does not exaggerate when he claims that, if God gave Satan a free hand, 'no man would be left alive.' Since Satan cannot kill us, he tries to 'make us into his followers in opposition to God, just as he is in opposition to God.'"
Make no mistake, Satan's diabolical scheme continues apace. To wit: "Missouri has reportedly doubled its abortion capacity this year 'thanks to the Satanic Temple and Planned Parenthood,' who have worked in tandem to fight the state’s restrictions on abortion… Planned Parenthood has battled against [popularly enacted pro-life] state regulations requiring abortion clinics to meet the same surgical center standards as full hospitals and for their doctors to have hospital privileges, and in April a federal court sided with the abortion giant.

Planned Parenthood's affinity for and alliance with Satanists is nothing new. The Satanic Temple has been on the forefront of the fight to preserve and extend access to abortion throughout the nation. In 2015, it set up a crowdfunding website "to challenge arbitrary, insulting abortion regulations," especially the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. Its website expressly states that:
The Satanic Temple (TST) supports personal choice in the context of abortion and, as part of a multi-faceted Women’s Rights campaign, TST is offering religious exemptions from arbitrary, insulting, and outright harmful anti-abortion legislation that has been steadily encroaching across the nation.In July of 2013, in response to the Texas legislature passing a law aimed at the regulation of abortions in the state, abortion advocates protested bitterly, screaming obscenities at pro-life activists and lawmakers. "In an episode that received considerable attention, some of the protesters attempted to drown out pro-lifers singing the hymn 'Amazing Grace' by repeatedly shouting 'Hail Satan!'" This is truly stomach turning stuff. As one commenter stated, "Satan doesn't like his minions any more than he likes God…" May our nation see the light of truth.
Prayer for the Gift of Life
Father, maker of all. You adorn all creation with splendor and beauty, and fashion human lives in your image and likeness. Awaken in every heart reverence for the work of your hands, and renew among your people a readiness to nurture and sustain your precious gift of life.
