Why wouldn't they support child sacrifice?
The Temple also has an Indiegogo donation page setup which it says serves “to challenge arbitrary, insulting abortion regulations,” The campaign has already raised more than $32,000.
The Satanic Temple Reproductive Rights Campaign
The Temple, supports on-demand abortion, and vehemently opposes all anti-abortion proposals, including the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which requires the physician to first determine the probable post-fertilization age of the unborn child before performing an abortion, and would ban abortions after 20 weeks except in cases where the woman’s life is in danger, or where rape, incest has led to the pregnancy.
The cult, which clearly aligns itself with The Devil, even though they claim not to believe he really exists, has a questionable statement on it’s website suggesting that the reason they support abortion is to do with “personal choice” and “Women’s Rights”.
Not an identification with historical Satanic child sacrifice, or doing the evil bidding of the dark lord then? Have those special interests taken a back seat in this instance?
The cult also opposes ultrasounds because they believe them to be an “attempt to create guilt and discomfort in those seeking abortions.”
The Satanic Temple has recently embroiled itself in a federal lawsuit against the State of Missouri, claiming that the state’s laws restricting abortion violate their “free exercise” of Satanism, and that abortion is “an essential religious duty” for Satanists.
While the Temple says it views Satan purely as “a literary figure, not a deity,” they still identify as a religion, claiming that Satan “stands for rationality, for skepticism, for speaking truth to power.”
Child sacrifice and ritual abuse has been linked to Satanism for hundreds of years. The story of the ancient Ammonite god Moloch, also known as Baal, says that he demanded his followers offer up their own children to be burned as sacrifices.
But obviously, modern day politically correct Satanists can’t say they support that now can they.
Quote from The donation page...
Please contribute to The Satanic Temple's legal aid fund to offer exemptions against, and actively challenge, arbitrary, insulting, and outright harmful anti-abortion legislation.
The Satanic Temple (TST) supports personal choice in the context of abortion and, as part of a multi-faceted Women’s Rights campaign, TST is offering religious exemptions from arbitrary, insulting, and outright harmful anti-abortion legislation that has been steadily encroaching across the nation. Among our fundamental tenets, TST holds that “one’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone,” and, “Beliefs should conform to our best scientific understanding of the world. We should take care never to distort scientific facts to fit our beliefs.” We believe that women who share our deeply-held beliefs should be exempted from State-mandated “informed consent” materials — compulsory “informational” materials which are often scientifically unfounded or medically invalid – narrated ultrasounds, and imposed abortion waiting periods. Narrated ultrasounds, like much of the state-mandated informed consent materials, are a facile attempt to create guilt and discomfort in those seeking abortions. Mandatory waiting periods serve no medical function. With a dearth of abortion clinics, the waiting period often requires that women who travel a significant distance for care need take added time off work and endure the expense of overnight lodging. Our exemption letters place the care provider on-notice that such practices violate the woman’s religious principles and, as such, must be bypassed in the course of her care.
An important precedent is taking shape in Missouri, where our exemptions may soon be tested. “Mary,” a Temple member, will be formally notifying her doctor that her deeply held beliefs would be violated if she is forced to receive inaccurate information as required by the State, and if she is forced to endure a mandated 72 hour waiting period. These requirements unreasonably violate the sovereignty of her body.
Since 1973’s Roe v. Wade ruling by the Supreme Court which safeguarded the legality of abortion, the conservative religious right has instigated anti-abortion initiatives. Many lawmakers have introduced “weasel bills” transparently designed to make the process of receiving an abortion more difficult, and emotionally and logistically harrowing. Those who define the issue in terms of personal choice typically find their views marginalized as being outside of the realm of religious protection. While religio-conservative views seek to undermine abortion rights, they have also steadily worked to define “religious liberty” to be understood in terms of reserving the right to deny contraceptives and oppose rational family planning practices. We intend to show that religious liberty can also protect and promote these legal practices.
All funds for this campaign will go toward the general legal aid fund for The Satanic Temple's efforts toward Religious Reproductive Rights. This includes, but is not limited to, legal consultation and representation, lobbying, production of informational materials, outreach, and education. Where possible, TST will seek pro bono representation so as to more effectively utilize all funds raised.
