How to Reinforce the Worst Perceptions...

3/25/16 Daily Beast:
It was a showdown that can only be described as biblical: The Satanic Temple of Detroit versus the Pro-Life Action League outside of a Planned Parenthood clinic on Good Friday.
Led by Detroit chapter director Jex Blackmore, who made headlines last December for blogging about her experience with medical abortion, members of the Satanic Temple traveled to Planned Parenthood’s Ann Arbor, Michigan location to counter-protest the anti-abortion group.

In images from the protest, Blackmore can be seen wearing a crown of thorns and a faux pregnancy belly while carrying a cross meant to symbolize “the burden of oppressive mandates endured by women,” as the Satanic Temple noted in a press release.
No surprise: when my wife was in grad school, she ran into an essay by a French feminist explicitly comparing abortion to traditional Baal worship sacrificing of children.

I have often wondered why neopagans have yet to invent an infertility goddess.
