Angry pro-life protesters with “Men know better” and “Abortion no. Guns yes” signs protest in garbled, unintelligible words. The Holy Spirit descends down and urges the confused menagerie into a church, where they are met with women in choir robes that and some bizarre pro-choice pope that dance around the altar in front of the cross praising abortion for the glorious wonder that it is, until the protesters, convinced of the error of their ways, rip up their signs and join the blasphemous fray.
And that, in a nutshell, is the new music video by artist and director Viva Ruiz, the ignoble creator of Thank God for Abortion and the artist in residence at “Shout Your Abortion” where she creates content to celebrate the burning, dismemberment, and destruction of babies in an appropriately ghoulish career.
The video is shocking for its visceral imagery and in how blatantly it appropriates and bastardizes Christian themes, purposefully provoking a response perhaps in hopes to hide the fact that the song itself is objectively awful in its composition and lyrical arrangement.
Ruiz acting like the dog proudly running up to it’s owner with a dead kitten in it’s mouth and expecting praise, says of her creation:
TGFA is a spiritual mission to affirm the sanctity of abortion-having people. Queer people, gay people, trans people, and people of faith all have abortions. Where have our narratives been? I have had 2 abortions, am Latinx, queer, fluid, and Christian. [Editor’s Note: No, you are not!] We know that God loves us and we are blessed. We stand as believers intending to claim space for God in the abortion conversation. God has been used against abortion-having people, against LGBTQ people, against women and femme people. We know it’s a blasphemy to use spirit to oppress people. How can we stand by politely and let God be outright owned by fanatical extremists hellbent on forced pregnancy, the same zealots hellbent on white supremacy?
Blocking access to abortion is racist, is classist, is ableist, is gender-based violence. We demand that everyone regardless of faith stand with us for reproductive freedom under the banner of bodily autonomy: we belong to ourselves.
The lyrics, which can be seen here in full, feature a few choice lines:
God is cool with me
F*** the state they can’t take it
God is cool with me
F*** the church they only fake it…
God oh god God oh god God oh god God oh god
The power of Christ compels me
You don’t speak for me
I speak for me
Who can tell me what we need to be free
We got a right to self identity…
Stop torture of women
Get with it!
All the white feminists
non spiritual people
Creepy racist liberals
and the machistas
we need everybody in this
Straight up though: this thing is demonic from the pit of hell.
