Woman Builds Altar to Fetal Remains After Chemical Abortion

Commentary by Susan Brinkmann, OCDS

In a shocking display of the spiritual confusion of our time, a YouTube video featuring a young woman giving instructions to women about how to build an altar to celebrate the “sacred abortion experience” after a chemical abortion has garnered more than 330,000 views.

In an article about the video appearing on National Right to Life News, a woman instructs viewers on how to build the altar in order to “create a space for your sacred container” which will contain the “products of conception” after the chemical abortion is complete.

Although the video is now private, you can view it on the Twitter feed of conservative activist Drew Hernandez.

In it, a young woman encourages viewers to proceed by cleaning the space around their altar, then instructs: “I like to always have a candle going on my altar…and I’m adding an Empress tarot card because she symbolizes feminine fertility and feminine energy,” she says and gives no indication why she worships feminine fertility while preparing to destroy the “products” of her own fertility. Nor does she explain the reason why her altar also contains a picture of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Americas and the Unborn.

“I also really like to add the abortion pills themselves to the altar to really bless the pills that we will be taking into our bodies during this process,” she continues. “Before having your abortion, I would recommend giving them a nice sage or palo santo or another smoke to really cleanse the energy and really bless them and place your intention for healing into the pills before you take them.” Healing for whom, and why, are questions she never addresses.

She goes on to instruct viewers to “place the container in which you plan to place the products of conception or the fetal remains within to catch that after you pass it and save it for later when you find a way to bury or otherwise…to where we find a way to properly dispose of the fetal remains in a way that gives reverence and support to this sacred abortion experience.” Notice that the reverence is being given to the abortion, not the fetal remains.

In addition to being a place designated for worshiping the “abortion experience,” she suggests that women return to the altar “whenever you want to meditate, whenever you want to think deeply or contemplate any aspect of your abortion. It’s a really beautiful way to just give reverence to the experience and hold the experience in a really sacred way.”

In the end of the video, the woman folds her hands as if in prayer and says, “Thanks so much for building your altar with me today,” she says. “So much love.”

The unintended irony of that closing statement is almost too much to bear, says Dave Andrusko, Editor of National Right to Life News. “More than once I have characterized abortion as a secular sacrament. If ever you were tempted to think I was going overboard, consider this."

It’s also very indicative of the diabolical disorientation prevalent among the New Age “n.o.n.e.s.” who brag about being “spiritual” rather than religious. They sincerely believe they can mix-and-match religious practices at will – such as placing tarot cards on the same altar with Our Lady of Guadalupe – and as long as the combination makes them “feel good” it’s okay. This dangerous naivete about the supernatural world is leading many of them into darker realms without them even being aware of it until it’s too late.

As one commenter on the video states, “This just shows how evil 'New Age' really is. They convince people that EVERYTHING is positive and light if you just do it with a couple quartz crystals and some incense burning. This is dark energy and clearly taking the Left Hand path.”

Another commenter had a similar view: “This is a powerful example of why the modern New Age movement is so very dangerous & insidious. You can get from your local crystal shop to building abortion ritual altars VERY QUICKLY.”

Others just saw the video as pure evil. “Straight from the pits of hell,” one viewer said, while another called it “Ba’al worship.” Others questioned why she didn’t have a picture on her altar of Molech, the god to whom pagan peoples used to sacrifice their children.

All agree that this woman is very confused and seems so intent on denying the reality of abortion that she has created a fantasy-world where the act of killing the innocent is celebrated and considered “sacred” and worthy of reverence, with no regard for the individual whose life was taken.

This video can be described in just two words – pure evil.

Nine Ways to Discern If an Alternative Therapy Is Safe for Christians

DG asks: "There are so many alternative medicine practices out there. Some of them sound very suspicious to me and refer to 'life force energy' and 'spirit guides' but some sound okay. I even know of a Catholic chiropractor who prays before treating people but he's a Reiki Master! How does a Catholic know which ones are compatible with our faith and which ones are not?"

What You Might Not Know About the Peace Symbol

BW would like to know more about the peace symbol. "Often claimed to have been invented at the dawn of the nuclear age, I have dug a bit deeper and found it to be a broken-armed cross, favored by Nero. Also, it apparently decorates graves of Nazis (heavily into the occult). I suspect there is much more. . . "

What to Do About Those Email Prayer Chains

MI writes: “I don’t feel comfortable with this type of prayer request [that I received today]. ‘We are doing an Intercession of 1000 prayers for those people with cancer. Say the prayer and pass it to 10 people, Let me know if you cannot, so that we do not break this Intercession.’ Am I wrong? Isn’t it basically a chain letter. Would you participate? Looking forward to your thoughts!”
