The Satanic Temple filed a third lawsuit against the state of Missouri over its “draconian abortion laws,” according to a press statement. TST objects to “informed consent” laws, which mandate that women seeking abortions be required to receive a booklet that is “factually inaccurate and designed to dissuade women from getting an abortion.” The TST argues these practices have “no legitimate secular purpose and violate their First Amendment guarantee of religious free exercise.”
“With a new suit already filed while the state Supreme Court deliberates on our previous complaint, I believe we’ve effectively given the lie to the Attorney General’s Office insinuations throughout the hearings thus far that this issue was an isolated affair insofar as The Satanic Temple membership’s religious liberty is concerned,” TST spokesperson Lucien Greaves said in a statement.
