The Satanic Temple will interrupt Planned Parenthood protests in classic Satanic Temple fashion

We've been covering the Detroit chapter of the Satanic Temple since it was first founded back in 2014, headed by local Jex Blackmore. The group of non-theistic Satanists has been stirring things up ever since. 

They launched a "discrimination transparency" campaign, commissioned a controversial statue of Baphomet, and protested Planned Parenthood protests in spectacularly dramatic fashion.

Well, they're back at it again and plan to interrupt two anti-Planned Parenthood protests this morning with "radical political theatre" where they will "expose the anti-choice protest as an act of fetal idolatry, highlighting the fetishization and abstraction of the 'baby.'"

The group sent out a press release late last night where they detailed their stance against the anti-choice groups protesting at Planned Parenthood. 

The highly politicized anti­-choice movement advocates for the abolition of Planned Parenthood, an organization that provides critical preventive and primary reproductive health care services to low ­income women. The current cornerstone of their argument stems from a fabricated, fictional story that clinics “sell baby parts for profit”. Organizers of the April 23rd protest, entitled #ProtestPP, directly intended to irresponsibly perpetuate this contrived story in an attempt to leverage misunderstanding for political gain and impose the moral opinions of some upon a diverse community.
The anti-protest protests take place today at Planned Parenthood in Ferndale at 9:15 a.m. and at Planned Parenthood in Detroit at 10:15 a.m.
