Florida pastor and longtime spiritual adviser to President Trump recently prayed during a televised sermon for all “satanic pregnancies” to end in miscarriage.
In video of the Jan. 5 sermon, posted by the liberal advocacy group Right Wing Watch, televangelist pastor Paula White calls on Jesus Christ to “command all satanic pregnancies to miscarry right now.”
“Come on, I need you guys to pray,” she said. “We cancel every surprise from the witchcraft in the make-believe kingdom. Any hex, any spell, any witchcraft, any spirit of control, any Jezebel, anything that the enemy desires through spells, through witchcraft, through any way that is manipulation — demonic manipulation — we curse that. We break it according to the word of God in the name of Jesus.”
“We come against the marine kingdom, we come against the animal kingdom [unintelligible] … we break their power in the name of Jesus and we declare that any strange winds — any strange winds that have been sent to hurt the church, sent against this nation, sent against our president, sent against myself, sent against others, we break it by the superior blood of Jesus right now.”
“In the name of Jesus, we arrest every infirmity, affliction, fatigue, weariness, weakness, fear, sickness, any self-righteousness, any self-serving action God, let prides fall, let prides fall, let prides fall,” she said, continuing to wave her arms for emphasis. “In the name of Jesus, we command all satanic pregnancies to miscarry right now. We declare that anything that’s been conceived in Satanic wombs, that they will miscarry, they will not be able to carry forth any plan of destruction, any plan of harm.”
As of Sunday morning, the clip of White’s sermon had been viewed more than 2.5 million times.

“So Paula White wants everyone at @WhiteHouse to know she is praying for abortion,” tweeted Jennifer Gunter, an obstetrician and gynecologist who writes a column on women’s reproductive health for the New York Times.
“No pregnancies are satanic. Every child is a gift from God,” tweeted James Martin, a prominent Jesuit priest. “No one should ever pray for any woman to miscarry. No one should ever pray for evil or harm to befall another person. Jesus asked us to pray for our persecutors, not to curse them. To love our neighbors as ourselves.”
