Women’s magazine promotes “satanic abortions”

Cultural revolution in the West

Cosmopolitan did not want to answer questions about the publication.

Cosmopolitan, a popular magazine for young women, has seen fit to give its readers step-by-step instructions on how to perform ritual satanic abortions under the auspices of The Satanic Temple.

On November 16, Cosmopolitan took to its Instagram page to explain how to perform a satanic abortion. It specifically referenced a “ceremonial” service at Samuel Alito’s Mom’s Satanic Abortion Clinic – named as an insult to conservative Supreme Court justice Samuel Alito.

“What’s it like to have a Satanic abortion? For Jessica* [a fake name to keep the woman anonymous], a 37-year-old mother of three who received abortion medication via Samuel Alito’s Mom’s Satanic Clinic, ‘the experience was just very supportive'”, Cosmopolitan wrote in a feature.

“While she’s not a Satanist, Jessica decided to incorporate a few ceremonial elements into her solo abortion experience. ‘Why not?’ she thought. The overall messaging just clicked with her”, the post, which largely resembled an advertisement, continued.

Have an abortion in costume

The post featured a series of images describing the steps for performing a ritual abortion ceremony prescribed by The Satanic Temple (TST). These included steps such as staring at one’s reflection before taking an abortion pill and saying: “One’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone”.

The ritual later ends with the words: “By my body, my blood; by my will, it is done”.

The images also show that those who wish to perform a ritual abortion can “include as many loved ones as they’d like” in the ceremony and “light candles or even dress up – whatever makes them feel empowered”.

Hoping to expand abortion services

Shortly before this post, the fashion magazine published an article about the satanic abortion clinic and speculated about an alternate timeline in which Judge Alito’s mother chose abortion instead of giving birth to him.

According to Cosmopolitan, no other faith-based group in the US has ever started an abortion clinic, and the purpose of Samuel Alito’s Mom’s Satanic Clinic is allegedly to use Satanism as a way to protect abortion rights.

“Unlike other abortion-pill-by-mail providers like Hey Jane or Abuzz, TST is a religion. Meaning its patients, who don’t have to be Satanists themselves, are participating in a religious ritual”, they admit.

“That’s a key legal distinction TST hopes to leverage in its historic push to expand its clinic model beyond New Mexico — into states where abortion is otherwise banned”, the magazine adds.

The Satanic Temple is a non-theistic neo-religious activist group founded in the United States in 2013.

The group uses satanic symbols and metaphors to promote what it claims are secular, humanist values, individual rights, and religious freedom.

The Temple is known for its activism against what it sees as government overreach in religious matters, fighting for a complete separation of the state from all things ecclesiastical. Among other things, it opposes any restrictions on abortion rights and has argued that same-sex marriage is sacred and that banning it violates Satanists' religious freedom.

Founder Lucien Greaves has described the temple as a "progressive and updated version of LaVey's Satanism".
