The Satan’s Temple is the latest organization to oppose Texas’s abortion laws. They use religious freedom in order to assist women in bypassing the most stringent abortion laws in America.
Satan Temple believes women should be allowed to use abortion pills during the first 24 weeks. This allows them to exercise religious freedom. The Texas legislature has now banned abortions after six weeks.
The new law was passed last week. An attorney from Satan’s Temple in Massachusetts wrote to FDA asking for permission to use the FDA’s abortion drugs, mifepristone or misoprostol as “sacraments”. A part of. “Abortion ceremony.
“I believe that Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton-who is known for his time writing press releases on religious freedom issues in other states-will be proud to see Texas The state’s strong religious freedom laws (which he strongly supports) will prevent the temple’s co-founder Lucien Greaves from saying in a statement that future abortion ceremonies will not be interrupted by unnecessary government restrictions, which will only humiliate And harass those who seek abortion.
The law prohibits abortion once a doctor can detect heart activity. This is usually about six weeks before some women realize they are pregnant.
While the court has stopped other states from imposing similar restrictions on their citizens, Texas law is different as it will be enforced through civil litigation instead of criminal prosecutors.
It permits any Texas citizen to sue an abortion provider who has violated the law. There are no exceptions to the law regarding rape and incest.
Last week, the Supreme Court voted 5-4 not to block the law.
Now, the Satan Temple website offers a message to Texans who are looking for ways to circumvent this new law.
On its website, it stated: “The Satan Temple stands ready for any member who holds a deep religious belief in the rights to reproductive freedom.”
The Temple added: “Therefore, we encourage any members who live in Texas and wish to undergo a Satanic abortion ceremony within 24 weeks of pregnancy to contact the Satan Temple so that we can help them directly combat this law.”
