Life begins when the Breath of Life breaths the Spirit into the Body and it becomes a living Soul. That has been the doctrine of the religions of the Goddesses from the beginning of time. That not only answers any question of when life begins, but it should also answer any questions about abortion.
To be clear. Life does not begin at conception. Nor does live begin at any time until the Soul is created by the Breath of Life, which is after the fetus is completely separated from the woman; and that may not be the first breath the fetus takes. Therefore, abortion is within the Laws of The Goddesses at any time the woman chooses, including not only up to the time the fetus is no longer in the woman, but even after the fetus is completely detached from the woman, and has not yet taken its first breath.
After the fetus takes its first breath, the termination of its bodily functions is a matter of civil law, even though the first breath may not be the Breath of Life. That is because Within the Laws of the Goddesses, a woman has complete control over her body, which includes the absolute right to say what goes into her body, and what comes out of her body; and that includes the right to terminate a fetus until the Soul has been created by the Breath of Life.
However, civil law generally consider life to begin with the first breath, and adherence to the Laws of the Goddesses should acquiesce to that, and only that. Any further intrusion into the Goddess-given right of a woman to chose when and how to abort a fetus must be rejected as a violation of the Laws of The Goddesses.
5,000 years ago the Egyptians wrote that when the Breath of Life (Ankh) breathed the Spirit (Ba) into a body (Hau) it became a Living Soul, (Kah. That has always been the reality of the Soul, and the doctrine of the religions of the Goddesses. This was also the belief of the Jews, who 2,500 years later, wrote the Book of Genesis 2:7, where, after their god formed man out of the dust of the ground, he "breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul." (KJV Gen. 2:7) But the religion of The Goddesses does not impose its doctrines or views on others, and we refuse to allow others to impose their religious views on us. However, in the United States, the government compels us to accept a new Christian doctrine that life begins at conception as espoused by Sharia Christians.
Sharia is an Arabic term for the "Way" or "Path", which means the "pathway to be followed."
The term was used by Muslims after the death of Mohamed (632 CE) to create the Sharia Law religious laws, which were derived from interpretations of "the recitation" (Quran) and the Hadith (reports of quotes by Mohamed).
One of the tenants of Sharia (the pathway to be followed) is the complete and absolute subjugation of women, making women little more than property that is subject to the domination and whims of men. And while it was the Muslims who developed Sharia law, Sharia itself has become a "pathway to be followed" by many modern Christians. For it is the denial of women's equality that appropriately marks the Christian "pathway to be followed" by Sharia Christians who impose their religious doctrines, views and morals on others.
Paramount among those Sharia Christian doctrines, is the so-called right to life, that uses the laws of the United States to impose Christian religious doctrine on the nation.
No matter how "life at conception," is presented, it is purely religious in nature, and Sharia Christians assertions that they must "speak for the unborn" is a ruse to justify domination and control over women through religious rhetoric and laws.
Sharia Christians, as well as America's political right wing, adhere to the belief that American was founded on their god-given belief that "all men are created equal." However, that absurdity had to be changed to mean "equal in the eyes of the law." But that same equality under the law was not imbedded in their god-given Constitution, which did not grant equality to black slaves or to women of any stature or race. Thus their god-given Constitution had to be amended in 1868 to make black male slaves equal to white males (in word only).
14th Amendment Section 1.The 14th Amendment grants "equal protection of the laws" to "all persons." But a woman was not considered to be a "person," and Article II only granted the right to vote to males "being twenty-one years of age." Thus, the Sharia Christians of the 19th century maintained control over women by denying them the "equal right" to vote. That required the 1920, 19th Amendment, which only gave women the right to vote, but under Sharia Christian Law, still has not made a women a person.
"All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."
Nor did the right to vote make women equal with men, and Sharia Christians were irate when the Supreme Court found that women (who did not have equal rights under the constitution) did have a right to privacy when it decided Roe v. Wade in 1973, thus giving women a Constitutional right to abortion. That right, however, turned out to be subject to Sharia Christian State restrictions. In other words, women were not afforded equal protection under the 14th Amendment, but rather only given a conditional right to privacy that can be infringed upon, and even violated, by the States.
In 2015, a sharply divided Supreme Court in Obergefell v. Hodges said the 14th Amendment Equal Protection and Due Process Clauses gave same-sex couples the right to marry, while the Conservative justices on the Court riled against changing the Constitution through the Court. But the Constitution does not grant women the same rights a men. Rather it subjugates them to male domination and man-made laws, under which they can never be free.
If a woman is to be truly free, she must come to the realization that she has the potential of becoming one of the most powerful forces on Earth. She must understand her role of preeminence, and accept it as a force to break the shackles which bind her mind body and soul to man-made religions.
But freedom is not gained from ignorance or blind obedience to any person group, religion, nation, doctrine, philosophy or attitude that makes a woman inferior to the man in any way. She must reject the man made doctrines that enslave her and keep her from truth.
In the western world of the twenty-first century, women are required to accept, as factual and god given, the doctrine that God was a Jew, that Israel was the center of the spiritual universe, and the laws of Moses, as modified by Christianity, are the infallible dictates of a god which women must obey without question. With such prerequisites to truth it is no wonder that women are kept is intellectual and spiritual bondage, subject to equally ignorant "god-made superior man."
But all those doctrines are false. Lies, in the form of a pious fraud that has been exposed by science, history and archaeology. Yet the only science Sharia Christians accept is a false belief that the potential of life is life itself, which must be protected from conception. While the women’s movements for equality in over 40 years since Roe v. Wade has been seduced by Sharia Christian rhetoric, that women needed to be protected by society and men.
It is dawn of the Rise of the Priestess, and women are poised to break the shackles of Sharia domination and pierce the veil that has obscured the pious frauds by emotions of faiths that are only believed in darkness. The time has arrived when the frauds of the Bible, Judaism, Christianity and Islam are to be exposed by the Priestesses and Priests of the Goddesses.
Goddess.org is but the beginning; and, as we open the Religions of The Goddesses to those who have waited patiently, we will also endeavor to create a media documentary that presents the lies of the Bible, and the religions it has spawned.
