( Milo ) A video making the rounds on Facebook right now shows members of The Satanic Temple in “BDSM baby” costumes hijacking an anti-abortion protest outside a Planned Parenthood.
“The Satanic Temple is fighting to protect women’s right to safe and legal abortion,” VICE’s caption for the video, which has amassed more than 6,000 shares since Thursday, reads.
The video begins with a shot of the “BDSM baby” counter-protesters waving whips and moaning in front of anti-abortion activists.
One of the Satanists can subsequently be seen stating, “I would say that we employ radical political theater to draw attention to the absurdity of the pro-life movement.”
“There’s no way that we can come there and have a logical discussion or argument and so we don’t want to give them credit for this this absurdity,” the woman continues.
Another Satanist goes on to explain that, as per The Satanic Temple’s tenets, “the body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone” and scientific facts (he doesn’t say which ones) should be relied upon.
