Why The Satanic Temple Is Fighting Missouri's Restrictive Abortion Law

Why The Satanic Temple Is Fighting Missouri's Restrictive Abortion LawOn Monday, The Satanic Temple delivered oral arguments in front of the Missouri State Court Western Appellate District in an effort to challenge the state’s abortion law. The organization, which views Satan as a symbol of personal autonomy and promotes compassion and “rational inquiry,” is arguing that Missouri’s abortion restrictions — including its informed consent law and mandatory 72-hour waiting period before procedures — violated the religious beliefs of one of its members. The temple first filed a complaint in May of 2015 on behalf of a member identified as Mary Doe, who had sought out an abortion.
