Satanic BDSM Babies Crash Anti-Abortion Protest

In response to the nationwide Planned Parenthood protest, members of The Satanic Temple of Detroit crashed the event dressed in bondage fetish wear, baby masks and diapers and engaged in group flagellation.  The performers were then painted gold by adoring fetal idolizers. The action was intended to expose fetal idolatry and the perpetuation of fictional, coercive propaganda against the reproductive health organization. The Satanic Temple (TST) believes that the anti-choice movement’s obsession with, and mischaracterization of the fetus obscures medical reality and a woman’s constitutional right to choice.  Enlarged images of fetuses which are no larger than an inch and the personalization of mindless, senseless human embryos elevates the fetus to the status of a demigod.

Our Campaigns 


Religious Plurality

Expression of religion on government property should not be limited to a singular voice. We will seek Satanic representation so long as the State publically endorses religious viewpoints.

Reproductive Rights

The body is inviolable — subject to one’s own will alone. Let’s put an end to politics in the doctor’s office.

Marriage Equality

Marriage is a religious sacrament and should be governed under the First Amendment’s protection of religious liberty. We consider state laws that restrict same sex marraige restrictive to our deeply held beliefs.
