Today's Topio - Freethinker Forum: Theocracy vs. Reproductive Rights
 
Join us for a discussion of the politics, theology and ethics of abortion bans and their opposition. In light of the latest pointed assaults on reproductive freedom in several states, we will turn a critical eye toward the ideology behind the legislation. We will also consider a range of pro-choice responses from Humanist and progressive religious voices. Contact: aahs@uusm.org

AAHS (Atheists, Agnostics, Humanists & Secularists/Skeptics) is a group that meets monthly (4th Sundays) for discussion and fellowship at the Unitarian Universalist Community Church of Santa Monica. All are welcome!
 
The term Humanism (sometimes known as secular humanism, modern humanism or scientific humanism) was first used as a moniker for a non-theistic, compassionate philosophy or worldview by Rev. John Dietrich of the First Unitarian Society of Minneapolis in 1916, over 100 years ago! The early Unitarian Humanists wrote the original "Humanism and its Aspirations" manifesto and co-founded the American Humanist Association, helping to begin an international movement. 
 
"The time has come for widespread recognition of the radical changes in religious beliefs throughout the modern world. The time is past for mere revision of traditional attitudes. Science and economic change have disrupted the old beliefs. Religions the world over are under the necessity of coming to terms with new conditions created by a vastly increased knowledge and experience. In every field of human activity, the vital movement is now in the direction of a candid and explicit humanism."
- Humanist Manifesto 1, 1933
