    The Satanic abortion ritual provides spiritual comfort and affirms bodily autonomy, self-worth, and freedom from coercive forces with the affirmation of TST's Seven Tenets. The ritual is not intended to convince a person to have an abortion. Instead, it sanctifies the abortion process by instilling confidence and protecting bodily rights when undergoing the safe and scientific procedure.

    I find the music from the video a bit disturbing.

    Do you think abortion should be protected as a religious right?

    Why stop there? If killing is a religious right, why not let them sacrifice some virgins?

    Unfortunately, after birth folks are given that pesky right to life. :oops:

    Yes. Or prisoners. Or any other heinous criminal. Or the willing, and suicidal. Death is as much a part of the story as life is. It's essential.

    No.
    I think abortion should be protected as a human right.
    But if that's not possible, the Satanic Temple's approach is the next best thing.

    Because fetuses don't possess all of the necessary attributes of personhood, nor does their continued gestation supersede bodily autonomy. Btw, how many unwanted children have you adopted?

    Personally, I'm anti-abortion but I'm even more anti-government.
    I dislike having the government telling me what to do.

    It is a human right. But in this case it is also a religious right.

    Somehow I think the same people who support this would also be against circumcision. Apparently you can kill your baby or have sex change operation on pre-teens but just don't circumcise them. :rolleyes:

    Of course, because we've established they're not the same. Is batter a cake before it bakes?

    I'd like there to be a male contraceptive pill used in conjunction with RU-486 consumed by sexually active fertile women who wish to certainly remain non-impregnated. this resulting in a nearly 100 percent effective birth control measure thereby unavailing surgically aborted fetuses subjected to Satanic rituals.

    It all depends upon how one defines a sacrifice. I have a feeling that if the Satanists sacrificed a virgin the video of it would probably break the rules of even the Eros subforum.

    They're not implying it's sacrifice. You are.

    Firstly and most importantly, it's a right. Context over content.

    You are correct in that it is no sacrifice. To sacrifice something means to give up something precious to you. How precious are the aborted to those aborting them? Not very, I would imagine. It is no sacrifice.
