Lilith: the barren, sex-crazed, child-killing mascot of the abortion movement
LifeSite News ^ | 11/29/2010 | Kathleen Gilbert

November 29, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Every once in a while, one stumbles upon a terrifying level of honesty among abortion supporters. Normally, the truth is something that refreshes us when we come upon it - not so in this realm.

Such is the nomenclature of what appears to be a moderately successful group dedicated solely to providing low-income women with abortion money, called the Lilith Fund.

The Texas-based group explains its name on its website as follows: “Lilith was the first woman created by God, as Adam’s wife and equal. Because Lilith refused to be subservient or submissive, she was sent away from Eden.”

This is a somewhat accurate presentation of Lilith’s bio; however, it’s certainly not the whole story. Here’s how the Hebrew legend, as first described in the Alphabet of Ben Sira of the 8th-10th century, ends: after Lilith flew away (and was not sent) from Eden, God punished her by dictating that one hundred of her own demon children would be killed each day. She responds by asserting her perpetual desire to sicken and kill newborn infants.

The abortion industry’s poster girl if ever there was one.

In fact, the primordial population control expert bears a significance far beyond Hebrew culture. The recognition of Lilith, Lilit, or Lilitu as a demoness of night or wind traces an etymological path through the earliest civilizations, believed first to appear as early as 4000 BC in Sumer. “Lilith” may even be mentioned in the Bible, Isaiah 34:14: after God has reduced Edom to an uninhabitable waste, “the lilith … find[s] for herself a place to rest” there. In Assyrian, Babylonian, and Greek mythology, Lilith emerged as a strong symbol of perverse barrenness, a desert-dwelling monster with breasts devoid of milk, that terrified nearby mothers by strangling and devouring their children.

Unsurprisingly, as Adam’s supposed original wife, Lilith is touted in Wiccan and occult circles to this day as the “first Eve” or “first mother” over and above Eve herself and the New Eve, Mary, whose selfless openness to life represents Lilith’s pure inverse.

In her Greco-Roman incarnation, Lilith (Lamia in Latin) was an even more fascinating - and insightful - symbol of the total corruption of female fertility. There we learn the child-eating Lamia actually suffers unbearable grief from the sight of her own dead babies, a grief made eternal because Zeus had forced her eyes to remain open permanently. In a gesture of pity, Zeus allowed Lamia occasionally to find relief by pulling her eyeballs out of their sockets. (Well, that was nice.)

The bizarre myth, an uncanny portrait of post-abortive grief, echoes in testimonies from the women of Silent No More Awareness depicting decades of being torn with obsessive anguish over their lost little ones.

One might wonder what would possess the Lilith Fund to follow through with such a cheery mascot. On its Facebook page earlier this year, the group eerily invited fans to express their devotion to abortion by posting the phrase “I am meeting Lilith” as their status, “if you have had an abortion or know someone who’s had an abortion.”

The Fund notes that old Lil is today “the feminist icon of the free-spirited strong woman” - and in fact, the revoltingly barren, sex-crazed, child-killing monster has found favor in modern “feminist theology” as a symbol of rebellion against patriarchal repression. Other pro-abortion feminist organizations have snapped up the name as well. (One of several such blogs, The Lilith Plan, helps women self-abort and even provides gruesome instructions for an illegal do-it-yourself D&C abortion.)

It seems some abortioneers are at least honest enough to openly associate with the child-killing demon who is even more well-fed in our modern world than she was 6000 years ago. Even if relatively few, it’s a good reminder that some know exactly what it means to be “pro-choice.”

Could this be why 25% of females 18-25 have mental problems in the US? Feminazis have caused generations of harm.

Notice how quiet they are about Islam, a truly oppressive system for women. Yet Clinton covers her head there and feminists say nothing about the Muslim takeover of Europe.

Fascinating.

You know, I just recently watched the fantasy TV series "Supernatural" which had the heroes seeking after the destruction of the demon Queen Lilith, who sustained herself by devouring newborn infants.

I thought it was just the gruesome storyline, but now I find it's actually based on mythological scholarship!

Leftists are pure evil and yet we allow them to walk and breath in our country. There are now tens of millions of these totally evil subhuman filth living amongst us.

Conservatives are either too cowardly to do what needs to be done or naive enough to think that God will perform a miracle.

““Lilith was the first woman created by God, as Adam’s wife and equal. Because Lilith refused to be subservient or submissive, she was sent away from Eden.””

What pure tripe this is!!!!

The pro-abort lunacy is becoming FAR more obvious.

Well, there’s always “Lilith Fair.” But it seems to be struggling a bit lately.

What’s worse, not being subservient or submissive, or deliberately doing what she was told not to do, like Eve? Besides, didn’t God know what Lilith was going to be like and do, just like He knew what Eve would do?

My Bible says “night monster”, not “lilith” in Isaiah 34:14.
The notes say that the night monster may be a reference to a demon.

And before this, I never heard of Lilith nor have seen any reference to her in Genesis in the account of Adam, Eve, the garden,creation accounts, anything in Scripture.

Adam’s orignal wife? Then he would have been watching Eve more closely, doncha think? ;)

Ultimately, to overcome evil, we need to work hard WITH God’s help. He continues to perform miracles....according to His perfect wisdom.

The sex positive agenda has sought to smash monogamy. It is sheer cultural suicide.

What damage the baby boom generation (some reared by red diaper doper parents, others by red diaper doper teachers, still others by red journalists...) has wrought.

I am assuming that Lilith is simply a product of Jewish mythology. Can any of our Jewish FRiends tell me if Lilith is mentioned in any Jewish religious canon? Lilith is mentioned nowhere in the Bible, in any creation story, so claiming that she was the the first woman created by God from a Christian perspective would be incorrect.

We’ll find out. I’m not betting on it.

The story of the garden is about the perlis of being dependant on others for a living. When Adam and Eve were in the garden they were wholy dependant on God like children are to their parents or welfare recipients are to the government. When they learned enough for themselves, by eating the fruit of knowledge, God kicked them out of the garden for their own good because they were able to take care of themselves. To have them stay in the garden would be like these modern day children who never leave home and end up living their parent’s basement, it is not good for them.

The story of the Adam and Eve in the garden can be taken as an analogy about growing up and reaching the age when you must leave the garden (your parents care) because you have the knowledge and power to take care of yourself. When viewed this way God’s expulsion of Adam and Eve from the garden is a merciful act that promotes the growth of man.

Now how Lillith fits in here, she could be viewed as a spoiled child who leaves home early before learning the valuable life lessons and is condemed to a chilish existance of anger and hatred becasue she didn’t grow up. Much like the Liberals who want to run everyone else’s life but fail on running their won lives.

לילית liyliyth (in Hebrew)

= "night creatures" (NIV, NKJV, NLT)

= "screech owl" (KJV)

= "night bird" (ESV)

= "night monster" (NASB)

= "night hag" (RSV)

= "the lilith" (NAB)

= "the lamia" (DRB)

[NB: lamia means "witch" or "sorceress"]

This woman in the "Her Story" story section writes:

Thank you for donating to the Lilith Fund and for helping our family more forward and continue on our journey of life.

Her Story

I guess she means thanks from everyone, except her aborted Grandchild.

I have always wondered where the Lilith story came from. Thanks for the explanation.

“strong women” who are absolutely terrified of tiny helpless babies.

Leftists are worthless vermin who are totally devoid of ANY redeeming qualities. Sometimes I wonder how a so-called “holy” God could create such monstrosities.
