The same orange-clad abortion rights supporters who sent children to #StandWithWendy in Texas today holding signs like “Stay out of my mommy’s vagina” didn’t limit themselves to strictly scientific arguments for unrestricted access to abortion. Groups of protesters also countered pro-life groups’ prayers with chants of “Hail Satan.”
I really wish I was lying, but today in Texas the pro-choice crowd was chanting "Hail Satan" while the Christians sang Amazing Grace.—

Abortion supporters are in the rotunda yelling "hail satan." Seriously.—

As a matter of fact, not only did a CNN Express reporter note it; someone did capture it on video. It looks like it was all in fun, though. When you’re arguing for unrestricted abortion at any time during the pregnancy, invoking Satan isn’t so shocking a stretch.
CNN’s Josh Rubin declared it a battle of the drum circles and prayer circles.
