USA: Satanic Temple To Open The ‘World’s First Religious Abortion Clinic’ Offering ‘Abortion Rituals’ In New Mexico. New Satanic Looking Statue Atop NYC Courthouse Pays Homage To RBG, Abortion.

The Satanic Temple is proudly unveiling what it has described as the “world’s first religious abortion clinic” where it will offer “abortion rituals.” It is mockingly naming the facility after Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito’s mother, as the justice penned the opinion overturning Roe v. Wade — a move saving countless unborn lives.

The Satanic Temple’s TST Health is described as a “collaborative of reproductive rights advocates and abortion care providers contracted and directed by The Satanic Temple to advance its Reproductive Religious Rights Campaign.” It plainly states its goal of expanding access for mothers to terminate the lives of their unborn children, as well as expanding what it describes as TST’s “abortion ritual.”

TST Health describes the “Abortion Ritual” as a “protective rite” designed to “cast off unwanted feelings” associated with taking the life of an unborn child. According to TST Health, the ritual involves spoken words exclusively and includes reciting the third tenet of the Satanic Temple — “One’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone” — and the fifth — “Beliefs should conform to one’s best scientific understanding of the world. One should take care never to distort scientific facts to fit one’s beliefs.”

Science, however, shows that a baby’s heartbeat begins around 21 days, and they can begin to feel pain in the first trimester, when many abortions take place. Brainwave activity also begins at six weeks as their limbs and organs begin to take form.

The facility, Samuel Alito’s Mom’s Satanic Abortion Clinic, is set to open in New Mexico on February 14, and it will offer telehealth visits “for those who wish to participate in TST’s Satanic Abortion Ritual in states where abortion has been banned.” It will also prescribe abortion pills for $90, which the Satanic Temple said will be “discreetly mailed to them by TST Health’s pharmacy partner.” However, it noted that those seeking an abortion must be in the state and the pills delivered to a New Mexico address due to state law.

Further, the Satanic Temple described the clinic as the “first step” in the TST Health venture, touting plans to open more abortion clinics in other states.

The Satanic Temple’s announcement comes on the heels of far-leftists becoming far more brazen in their advocacy of murdering unborn children. For instance, a pagan horned statue of a feminine figure emerging out of lotus is currently sitting atop the New York City courthouse. According to the artist, it pays homage to the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who fought for abortion, as the figure features the justice’s well-known lace collar. The artist also admitted that the figure’s hair is, indeed, “spiraling horns.’”

“The horns mimic the movement of the arms and are there as a symbol of the figure’s sovereignty, and its autonomy,” she said in the artist notes, adding that the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, as well as Ginsburg’s death, served as a “setback” for women:

Many conservatives have observed that the left’s brazen advocacy and celebration of abortion is reminiscent of the pagans throughout history, who sacrificed their children to the Canaanite deity Molech. This was sharply addressed in the Old Testament, as the deity was first mentioned in Leviticus.

“You shall not give any of your children to offer them to Molech, and so profane the name of your God: I am the Lord,” Leviticus 18:21 reads. Leviticus 20 also addresses the pagan deity and child sacrifice, as God strictly warned the people of Israel from “whoring after Molech,” lest God cut them off from among His people and they be put to death.

The recent addition of an unusual eight-foot golden statue atop a New York state courthouse in New York City is causing a stir with some questioning what exactly the statue represents.

The statue of a horned female was recently installed on top of the Courthouse of the Appellate Division, First Department of the Supreme Court of the State of New York. It stands alongside other sculptures depicting historical, religious, and other legendary lawgivers, all of them men.

The female sculpture with hair braided like spiraling horns was installed as part of an exhibition that opened last week.

It's the first female statue to adorn one of the Appellate courthouse's 10 plinths, dominated for more than a century by now weathered statues representing great lawgivers throughout the ages — all of them men.

The figure is a part of a project on the theme of women and justice for an exhibition titled Havah…to breathe, air, life, according to Madison Square Park.

Shahzia Sikander, who created the sculpture, says it supports women's rights, abortion, and the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, as seen in the statue's special collar.

Sikander, a 53-year-old Pakistani American artist, writes, "The luminous figure is also a nod to RBG – as seen in the detail adorning her collar. With Ginsburg's death and the reversal of Roe, there was a setback to women's constitutional progress."

Sikander made multiple versions of the statue that appear in several public locations in New York City. In her sculptures, the allegorical figures have their eyes wide open. They wear a decorative jabot at the neckline, referring to the lace collar popularized by Justice Ginsburg and the feminization of the black judicial robes traditionally worn by male justices of the court.

Sikander said the sculpture on top of the courthouse was part of "an urgent and necessary cultural reckoning" in cities like New York that are reconsidering "traditional representations of power in public spaces."

"The female body has a face with its hair braided into spiraling 'horns.' The horns mimic the movement of the arms and are there as a symbol of the figure's sovereignty, and its autonomy," Sikander wrote in her artist statement.

"She is a fierce woman and a form of resistance in a space that has historically been dominated by patriarchal representation," the artist told The New York Times.

Sikander said the work was called "NOW" because it was needed "now," at a time when women's reproductive rights were under siege after the U.S. Supreme Court in June overturned the ruling that invented a federal right to abortion.

New York at the Forefront Fringe of Abortion

As CBN News has reported, the state of New York has been at the forefront of so-called "abortion rights."

In 2019, the state passed The Reproductive Health Act that removed restrictions on late-term abortions, allowing unborn babies to be aborted despite being fully formed and viable, all the way up until the day of birth. The law erased New York's previous limitations on abortion which restricted the fatal procedure past 24 weeks.

Last June, New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) even went out of her way during an address at the Great Hall of Cooper Union in New York City to demean individuals who take a pro-life position.

"This is the United States of America, where freedom and liberty are supposed to mean something," Hochul said. "It's the rock upon which we were founded. It is supposed to mean something. Except in the eyes of some Neanderthals who say women are not entitled to those rights."

Critics Call It 'Satanic'

Sikander also said her "Now" sculpture was not intended to replace or cancel anyone but was aimed at feminizing the 127-year-old building. She noted in her statement, "Allegorical representations of women abound in the murals and sculptures throughout the courthouse."

Others say the statue's symbolism of a horned woman sprouting from a lotus flower appears to be satanic. Satanists and The Satanic Temple often use imagery of Satan having goat-like horns.

The sculpture has received some backlash from social media users.

"What a visual desecration of the landscape," one user wrote.

Another commented, "The destruction of tradition must include the desecration of landscape."

"I wasn't a fan of Ruth Bader Ginsberg, but even she deserves better than that ugly, satanic-looking eyesore," one user said.

Another Twitter user also commented, "It looks like something you'd see at a satanic ritual."

'Eve Is Also the First Law-Breaker, Right?'

The "Now" sculpture has an 18-foot sister statue called "Witness" on display in New York's Madison Square Park. The sculpture includes a hoop skirt inspired by the stained-glass dome of the nearby courthouse, symbolizing the need to "break the legal glass ceiling," according to The Times.

Written on the sculpture is the word "havah," which she said means "air" or "atmosphere" in Urdu and "Eve" in Arabic and Hebrew, the outlet reported.

According to the Art Newspaper, Sikander interprets the term 'havah' as meaning "to breath, to add air, to change a narrative, to add some space," she says. "Eve is also the first law-breaker, right?"

The Bible tells us when Eve disobeyed God, sin entered the world. And that's not exactly something Christians celebrate, much less honor with a statue.

All of Sikander's sculptures will be removed in June when the exhibit travels to Houston, Texas.
