Satanic Temple Claims Killing Babies is a Protected Religious Ritual by Micaiah Bilger for Life News
GNN Note – This is the liberal leftist agenda. Replace God with the state and make satan the figure head. This is why the attack on identity of our children has been so fierce the past decade. The Christian community is finally seeing the importance of our Christ Identity and the leftist don’t like it. / END
The Satanic Temple plans to challenge pro-life laws on religious freedom grounds if the U.S. Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade based on the claim that killing an unborn baby in an abortion is a “religious ritual” in its members’ views.
The pro-abortion group announced its plans last week in reaction to a leaked draft opinion from the U.S. Supreme Court that would overturn Roe v. Wade. Without Roe, states would be allowed to protect unborn babies from abortion again, and predictions estimate anywhere from a dozen to 26 states would do so.
In a statement May 5, the Satanic Temple (TST) said its lawsuit would force states with abortion bans to provide religious exemptions to its members so that they can access abortion drugs.
“States that outlaw abortion and do not grant exceptions present more significant challenges, but TST has a number of plans that we will be undertaking quite soon,” the group said. “First, we will be suing the FDA to permit TST access to [abortion drugs] mifepristone and misoprostol for use under medical supervision as part of our religious abortion ritual.”
The Satanic Temple claims that an abortion is a “ritual” that it likens to communion or baptism for Christians. In 2020, it even raffled off an abortion to raise money for its lawsuits.
The satanic group argues that pro-life laws
violate its members’ religious freedom under the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act because one of its tenets is “one’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone.”
