Abortion Law Violates Religious Freedom

This Tuesday, The Satanic Temple will be arguing their case in front of the Missouri Supreme Court after convincing an appeals court that the state's mandatory 72-hour waiting period before having an abortion violates their religious freedom. The Temple is taking up the case of a member they refer to as "Mary Doe," who claims the law goes against her religious beliefs. The woman contends that back in May of 2015, she was forced to view an ultrasound of her fetus and required to read a booklet that stated life "begins at conception." ... "Specifically, her letter advised she has deeply held religious beliefs that a nonviable fetus is not a separate human being but is part of her body and that abortion of a nonviable fetus does not terminate the life of a separate, unique, living human being," the case summary stated according to NBC News.
