Satan is Free Will, Satan is Pro-Choice

It is appalling that some Satanists, especially those claiming to be theistic, have taken a conservative Christian view, especially on women’s rights and abortion. I am shocked by the number of Satanists that have taken the “pro-life” stance and are not looking at the bigger picture. From what I have observed, these Satanists fall into two groups of reasoning;

  1. To oppose TST (The Satanic Temple) and everything about them, including their pro-choice movement. Most Satanists do not accept TST to be a real Satanic organization. The theistic Satanists who oppose TST will do anything to defy everything the TST represents (this even includes being anti the TST’s pro-gay and pro-trans movements). 
  2. To claim that every unborn child is of Satan. To abort a pregnancy is to offend Satan. That under any circumstances, even if rape is a factor, the impregnated woman became to be so upon Satan’s Will. The unborn child in question is Satan’s, and this is the destiny that Satan had in store for the expected mother. The fetus might be a devotee of the Devil, to carry out Satan’s will on Earth after its birth. These types of Satanists truly mimic the Roman Catholic Church’s view on abortion and bring back women’s rights to near non-existence.  To be fair, not all of these pro-lifers, anti-choice Satanists realize that they are hand in hand with the Church they oppose when preaching and pushing this standpoint upon other Satanists. As mentioned above, some are not willing to see the bigger picture outside the personal opinion they are trying to preach as Satan’s word and will.

Many Theistic Satanists for whatever unique reason of the individual, are also anti-Anton LaVey (founder of the Church of Satan. Also the first in organizing the non-religion/religion of Satanism and coining the term Satanism to represent his take on what it is). Yes, these Satanists will take inserts from LaVey’s teachings to back their reasons for being anti-choice and pro-life. An example of what they rehash is ” Satan Represents Responsibility to the Responsible” this is used against a woman in the scenario if she falls pregnant, no matter how the pregnancy came about. The ignorance on the part of the majority of Theistic Satanists who are rehashing this phrase is that they are not only using this phrase out of context, but they also could not tell you from which of LaVey’s writings it stems. Some don’t even realize it comes from LaVey’s teaching. Responsibility to the Responsible hails from The Nine Satanic Statements as they appear in Anton LaVey’s Satanic Bible 1969. It is the sixth statement and it reads “Satan represents responsibility to the responsible instead of concern for psychic vampires!” Notice how this statement has nothing to do with pregnant women or abortion. Another rehash taken from LaVey’s writings that pro-life Theistic Satanists like to throw out is the ninth rule in The 11 Satanic Rules of the Earth, again taken from the Satanic Bible. “Do not harm little children” Again, this statement has nothing to do with the rights of a pregnant woman’s body nor of a human fetus. It clearly states its regarding little children -Meaning those already born!

*It’s funny, in a hypocritical way, how when those who discredit Anton LaVey’s role in bringing Satanism to light in the contemporary world, will go back to take from his teachings when they feel it suits their cause.

Satan gave us free will. As Lucifer, He is our liberator and He lends His cup so that we may drink from His wisdom. Therefore how could Satanists of any walk, be pro-life when it comes to women’s bodies and abortion. Why would a Satanist want to help bring church and state back together? Why would a Satanist want to give a government control over women’s bodies? Why would a Satanist want to take away someone’s free will? The will that Satan gave! Why would a Satanist want to bring in politics into their devotional practice and try to persuade it, either directly or in subtle innuendos, unto fellow Satanists? Why would a Satanist preach unto others that taking the feel will over one’s body, away from them and removing their power to decide for themselves, is Satan’s will?

This is NOT Satan’s will! Satan like the Demons does not care so much about the mundane goings-on of humans. Satan does not impose upon us at all. The pro-life, anti-abortion movement/politics is a dogmatic concept meant to enforce total control over a woman’s will and body. This is the influence of Christian rule along with certain governments who are seeking any means possible to pull the reins tight on society’s freedom. Think about this hard! 

*In my personal option, anyone calling themselves a Satanist who is pushing to remove the rights of women over their bodies, who wish to force unwanted pregnancies, and who is preaching this out to other Satanists, is NOT a Satanist. Or, in the least, is not behaving as one who’s heart is devoted to Satan. They are more a person who is aligning themselves with the religion of Satanism, using Satan’s name to push their own personal agenda for their own personal gain. It is their own political views they are preaching and this has nothing to do for the actual Devil. We each hold the right to follow whatever politics we wish and believe what we want, but in my view, politics should be set a part from Satanic religion and spirituality. No matter what your political views are, it should not cloud your view of Satanism nor should you be pushing your personal political beliefs unto others through Satanism.

Again I will stress, that we need to look at the big picture. If women’s rights over their bodies is taken from them, it will open the floodgates in removing other rights such as the right for women to vote, for example. Why not? If we allow a right which women had fought hard for to be taken away decades later, why not another right they had fought equally as hard for? If women lose the right of choice in this matter, this also will make it much easier to go back and retract rights of minorities such as gay rights, trans and gender rights, and etc.. In recent weeks, in Canada, gay men finally have the right to give blood, can you believe it took this long for this to be granted? If the abortion rights are retracted in our neighbor the United States of America, what’s to say that the right to give blood won’t be taken away again from gay men here in Canada, along with our abortion rights. Whatever happens in either of these counties the other soon follows. Sadly we also influence much of the Standard worldwide. This is how big this is. Much bigger than the privileged pro-life Satanists, who can’t see outside their closed-minded agenda.

If a woman who needs it, has access to safe abortion options, the procedure can be taken care of prior to the fetus becoming an actual embryo. It is in the embryo stage that a heartbeat develops. A fetal heartbeat may first be detected by a vaginal ultrasound as early as 6 weeks after gestation. That’s when a fetal pole, the first visible sign of a developing embryo, can sometimes be seen. But between 6 1/2 to 7 weeks after gestation, a heartbeat can be better assessed. Now anti-abortionists use this heartbeat factor to push their argument, so much so, that most of us only hold the beating heart factor in mind, forgetting about the most important brain factor! Thanks to one of this sites subscribers, I am now reminded and awakened to the importance of the brain and how it plays a major role in this war on abortion. I could not state what they shared in the commentary in better words so I have copied this subscribers statement and as shown below, in order to share it with everyone who is reading this article. We can all hold in mind when have to defend women’s rights in this matter.

*Thank you tlothaos, for this insightful information. Your input here is much appreciated.

“A strong argument can be made against the heartbeat having any ethical relevance to the issue whatsoever. To be horribly unromantic, a heart is just a muscle that pumps blood. Vs. without a brain/neurons/etc., there can be no pain perception or sentience of any kind. Heart development comes earlier than brain development, though, and anti-choice people therefore use it in emotional appeals to argue for needlessly-early cut-offs for when abortion should be allowed – i.e. in practice, many folks won’t know they are pregnant during that period, and will thus wind up being forced to carry the pregnancy to term. Vs. the window in which one can have an abortion without meaningfully causing the “suffering” of the embryo is actually considerably wider than these people are misleading us into thinking.” “

“Something to think about so as to resist being manipulated by disingenuous “pro-life” discourse (of which there is a lot out there).”

*Below is not of my own words but rather something I barrowed from a friend’s post on Facebook. She doesn’t know the source but it and similar postings have been going around. I find it most fitting to end my above article. Hopefully it will make some who are pushing the Christian anti’-abortion agenda, stop and think. See the reality outside from their narrow bubble.

I am not pro-murder of children and babies, but..

*I’m pro-Becky who found out at her 20-week anatomy scan that the infant she had been so excited to bring into this world had developed without life-sustaining organs.

*I’m pro-Susan who was sexually assaulted on her way home from work, only to come to the horrific realization that her assailant planted his seed in her when she got a positive pregnancy test result a month later.

*I’m pro-Theresa who hemorrhaged due to a placental abruption, causing her parents, spouse, and children to have to make the impossible decision on whether to save her or her unborn child.

*I’m pro-little Cathy who had her innocence ripped away from her by someone she should have been able to trust and her 11-year-old body isn’t mature enough to bear the consequence of that betrayal.

*I’m pro-Melissa who’s working two jobs just to make ends meet and has to choose between bringing another child into poverty or feeding the children she already has because her spouse walked out on her.

*I’m pro-Brittany who realizes that she is in no way financially, emotionally, or physically able to raise a child.

*I’m pro-Emily who went through IVF, ending up with SIX viable implanted eggs requiring selective reduction to ensure the safety of her and a SAFE number of fetuses.

*I’m pro-Jessica who is FINALLY getting the strength to get away from her physically abusive spouse only to find out that she is carrying the monster’s child.

  1. Well said Kindra and I agree with everything you wrote on this blog. Its sad to see theistic satanisms are becoming like christians with their own closed mind and trying to fit in with todays society. They all make excuses from the satanic bible by Anton Lavey on his statements but get it wrong as if they read it too fast and missed those last words as you just stated, “instead of concern for psychic vampires.” Which is laughable. Im glad satan has been guiding me really well and always had a gift of an opened mind since early childhood that society is still behind on their own views about all this and other things.

    Thank you kindra for this blog that really needed to be said 🖤🤘🏻😈

    1. Thank you for sharing ArcaneShadowWolf (: I honestly think that most who do so, haven’t read the Satanic Bible and rehash from memes floating around social media or just from each other, because they heard it somewhere Lol!
      I’m glad you enjoyed this read.

  2. A very good blog and covers many important points. Satan/Lucifer gave us free will to decide for ourselves how to live our lives, not to impose morality on others.

  3. I basically agree with everything here, but just wanted to add a thought:

    I think a strong argument can actually be made against the heartbeat having any ethical relevance to the issue whatsoever. To be horribly unromantic, a heart is just a muscle that pumps blood. Vs. without a brain/neurons/etc., there can be no pain perception or sentience of any kind. Heart development comes earlier than brain development, though, and anti-choice people therefore use it in emotional appeals to argue for needlessly-early cut-offs for when abortion should be allowed – i.e. in practice, many folks won’t know they are pregnant during that period, and will thus wind up being forced to carry the pregnancy to term. Vs. the window in which one can have an abortion without meaningfully causing the “suffering” of the embryo is actually considerably wider than these people are misleading us into thinking.

    I strongly emphasize in saying this: I don’t disagree at all that “earlier is better,” and if anyone is personally uncomfortable with aborting a fetus with a heartbeat for their own spiritual reasons, that’s totally fair and I respect that! Just wanted to share this, though, as something to think about so as to resist being manipulated by disingenuous “pro-life” discourse (of which there is a lot out there).

    1. Ave tlothaos! Thank you for sharing, you make an excellent point. I will take this info you lent and included it in that last part of the article and credit you for it of course. You’re right, how the pro-lifers always stress the heartbeat so much that it s what the majority of us on either side tend to hold in mind, forgetting or not knowing about the brain factor. Thanks to you I can now up my game when having to debate with those spewing anti-abortion.
      Glad you enjoyed reading this and again thank you for your input.

  4. An excellent and much needed antidote to such a lot of hype fuelled by misunderstanding, biological and (I think) theological. I’ve always found LaVey’s propositions to be excellent starting points, but a little short in terms of defining and defending _theistic_ Satanism. I find Satan, in my opinion again, an infinitely older deity – the fons et origo of subsequent emanations – such that all Judaeo-Christian interpretations, philosophies and theologies which fetch from these newer faiths be always irrelevant.
    Well said.

    1. Ave James! Thank you for sharing, your feedback is very well stated and I fully agree. I’m happy that you appreciated this article. I know what I have stated within it, outspreads the realm of Satanism, but I tried to keep it focused on Satanists for the purpose of this website.

  5. I had no idea that some Satanists held this sort of view on abortion. I suppose they find it difficult to fully let go of their Christian roots and end up transferring them to Satan … I suppose it’s part of their journey on the Crooked Path to evolve from those Christian views so that they can increasingly assimilate more of Satan’s current into their life. Eventually, I’m sure, they will find themselves shifting in their outlook quite naturally based on their prayers to Satan. Some people might take longer than others. Who knows. Very interesting what you wrote about Anton LeVey. We all owe him so much. I like to focus more on the period of his life when he actually believed in Satan, though. Without him, I don’t think our Satanic community would have evolved to the extent it has today. I completely agree with you about keeping Satanism and politics separate. Essential. I like the brain and heart argument, very true and one that never occurred to me before! AVE SATANAS!

    1. Thank you Titus for sharing and I’m happy that you appreciated my article.
      True, we would have Satanism so freely open and online if it was not for Anton LaVey. Sadly, many Theistic Satanists will deny this, some like to live with a clouded view of reality. I wish it were a matter of timing for those Satanists to shed the parts of Christianity that still bind them. Sadly, many don’t realize that they are spewing Christianity, and especially Catholic morals and preaching into what they are presenting to be Satanism. And, worse, some do!
      I’m always happy to read your insight.

  6. Oh my word… I am a new exile from 64 years asa deeply committed Evangelical Christian.

    Satan whispered and shouted His mighty message of personal freedom and personal responsibility and the faith of this former Pre-Destinational Calvinist who denied free will crumbled under the joy and beauty of freedom.

    I ache to think any Satanist could sound so trapped by the thinking that Yahweh promotes… Lock your soul down,cut your joys to nil and walk in a devastating lockstep of ind fealty

      Thank you so very much for sharing. It sounds like you have experienced quite a journey with massive twists and turns. I appreciate your wisdom and fully agree with your stance as to why any Satanist could be so trapped in such a mindset. Sadly, there are quite a few, it’s baffling.
