image for Satanic Temple Floats Devilishly Clever Strategy To Dodge Texas Abortion Law

The always-thinking Satanic Temple has an intriguing strategy for women to escape the draconian restrictions of the new Texas abortion law: take an abortion-inducing drug as an expression of religious freedom in a faith-based rite.

He compared employing the drugs to the use of peyote in certain Native American rituals allowed under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

For the temple, bodily autonomy and science are sacrosanct, and the abortion ritual is an important expression of those beliefs, explained temple co-founder Lucien Greaves.

The temple website features a message to Texans seeking a way around the new state law that bans abortion after just six weeks, before most people even know they’re pregnant.

“Accordingly, we encourage any member who resides in Texas and wishes to undergo the Satanic Abortion Ritual within the first 24 weeks of pregnancy to contact The Satanic Temple so we may help them fight this law directly,” it added.

The temple defiantly concluded: “We will not be cowed into silence by an unjust law or a tyrannical state government.”.
