Satanists To The Rescue

Credit Missouri Satanists for using the religious freedom argument to protect access to abortion. This could be a template for the protection of abortion rights in other states.

As a Satanist, Mary said, she believes her body is “inviolable”—thus, a mandatory waiting period with no medical justification that hampers her bodily autonomy inflicts a “substantial burden” on her “sincerely held religious beliefs,” as does the law that requires she be informed that “abortion will terminate the life of a separate, unique, living human being.”
