Satanic Temple Challenges Missouri Abortion Law
A Satanic church is using the First Amendment to challenge Missouri’s abortion laws on the grounds of religious freedom.
The Satanic Temple last week filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of plaintiff Judy Doe arguing that the state’s informed consent law, which mandates a 72-hour waiting period before a woman can have an abortion, is unconstitutional.
An earlier federal lawsuit filed in 2015 was dismissed by a U.S. District court judge because the plaintiff was not pregnant at the time. That case is now pending before the 8th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals.
