Satanic Temple condemns Texas Heartbeat Act

Satanic Temple condemns Texas Heartbeat Act by Luke Gentile, for Washington Examiner

GNN Note – From The satanic temple’s twitter channel – Satanic Abortions are protected by Religious Liberty Laws – “satanic abortions” are their own words not mine. Still want an abortion? /END

“The Satanic Abortion Ritual is a sacrament which surrounds and includes the abortive act. It is designed to combat feelings of guilt, doubt, and shame and to empower the member to assert or reassert power and control over their own mind and body,” wrote Matthew Kezhaya, the Temple’s general counsel.

Texas law’s “prescription requirement in the risk evaluation mitigation strategy” denies Temple members from receiving the anti-abortion drugs mifepristone and misoprostol, which infringes on their beliefs , Kezhaya said.

“The REMS prescription requirement substantially interferes with the Satanic Abortion Ritual because the Government impedes the members’ access to the medication involved in the ritual,” he wrote.

As a result of this infringement, The Satanic Temple demanded an exemption on the grounds of religion, Kezhaya wrote.

The temple “has every desire to ensure the health and safety of its membership, the issue is with governmental control over whether TST’s membership can obtain access to these drugs,” he wrote.

“Please respond within 60 days of receipt of this letter with written confirmation that TST and its membership may obtain mifepristone and misoprostol without meeting REMS requirements,” he said. “Or, within 60 days of receipt of this letter, please advise as to any additional information you may need to evaluate this request.”
