Abortion Is Satanic, Pt. 2

In case our prior post wasn't convincing enough, consider this entry over at Salon, who is perfectly willing to admit that abortion kills a baby. She just doesn't think that's all that important. Not only does she confess this belief herself, she urges all of her pro-abortion cohorts to go ahead and admit the obvious. Abortion kills a baby. Her call for these folk to embrace reality is refreshing, but it is bone-chilling in how blatantly evil people are willing to be.

Oh, and if you're wondering at all about the Satanic angle, check out her language in closing.

My belief that life begins at conception is mine to cling to. And if you believe that it begins at birth, or somewhere around the second trimester, or when the kid finally goes to college, that’s a conversation we can have, one that I hope would be respectful and empathetic and fearless. We can’t have it if those of us who believe that human life exists in utero are afraid we’re somehow going to flub it for the cause. In an Op-Ed on “Why I’m Pro-Choice” in the Michigan Daily this week, Emma Maniere stated, quite perfectly, that “Some argue that abortion takes lives, but I know that abortion saves lives, too.” She understands that it saves lives not just in the most medically literal way, but in the roads that women who have choice then get to go down, in the possibilities for them and for their families. And I would put the life of a mother over the life of a fetus every single time — even if I still need to acknowledge my conviction that the fetus is indeed a life. A life worth sacrificing.

Yes. She just approved of human sacrifice. To a deity? Probably not consciously, but can it seriously be argued that taking this position isn't making a deity of the self?

The Self as Deity. Yes. That's pretty much the religion in the modern world isn't it? I suppose that's why the Gate is narrow.
