This year the Satanic Temple vowed to fight for its members’ abortion rights if U.S Supreme court overturned 1973 roe v. wade ruling – which it did few days ago.
Along with dozens of Jewish groups, Satanists allege that restrictions on abortion violate religious liberty principles. Considering itself a primary trail-blazer in advancing the “right” to directly kill preborn girls and boys in womb, the Satanic Temple of New York City stepped out in front of the parade to lead yesterday’s feminists and today’s “birthing people” to what it hopes will be an effective means of restoring unrestricted preborn child killing in areas where it is no longer available.
After Friday’s glorious overturning of the infamous 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision, as leftists responded with rage, calling the decision “illegitimate,” promising to “defy” the law in this regard. Trying to find a way to still have a legal access to killing unborn babies- the cult said it will turn to religious exemptions, under the First Amendment religious freedom clause, to kill preborn children in their “religious abortion ritual.”
In recent years, Satanists have argued that any restriction to the killing of preborn children violates their religious beliefs. In 2015, the Satanic Temple filed a federal lawsuit against Missouri, claiming that state laws restricting abortion violate their “free exercise” of Satanism. In 2020, they launched a campaign titled “Satanic Abortions Are Protected by Religious Liberty Laws,” and in the wake of the landmark Dobbs decision on Friday they reiterated their intention to circumvent the resulting restrictions to abortion in many places calling itself “the leading beacon of light in the battle for abortion access.”
Seeking to exploit this same constitutional principle to accomplish the same end of unrestricted abortion, over 140 Jewish organizations, including the Anti-Defamation League, sponsored a May 17 “Jewish Rally for Abortion Justice” publicly affirming “abortion access is a Jewish value” and “banning abortions is a religious freedom issue.”
However it is important to explain that- Judaism takes a far less stringent approach to abortion than Christianity, providing explicit exceptions for threats to a mother’s life and rabbinic support for terminating a pregnancy in a host of other situations, there is nonetheless broad objection to abortion in cases without serious cause. Now- In 1991, Joe Biden wondered out loud if Clarence Thomas was playing the long game on abortion- after that we will show U.S lawmaker Ted Cruz arguing in favour of the Satanic template.
