The Satanic Temple will be staging a rally for ‘religious’ reproductive rights and women’s health — and more abortions.

The satanists will hold the march in one of the following states: Indiana, Missouri, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, North Dakota, Ohio, and Utah.
The Satanic Temple (TST) will be staging a rally for religious reproductive rights and women’s health at the capital of one of the states with the most egregiously restrictive abortion laws. These states include Indiana, Missouri, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, North Dakota, Ohio, and Utah. Supporters will donate in the name of the state of their choice, and the location that has received the most donations will be selected for the rally to take place.

The fundraiser and rally are being held to support TST’s ongoing battle against the erosion of reproductive rights and to address the religious and cultural prejudice rooted in the challenges women face when seeking proper healthcare, including abortion, that affect the bodily autonomy of all, including the LGBTQ+ community. As a religious organization, TST insists that its members are exempt from obstacles to abortion access in accordance with their beliefs under both the First Amendment and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA).
TST’s religious belief that people should live in accordance with the best scientific knowledge available, and its belief in bodily autonomy, inform their opposition to laws that restrict abortion access. Some of the laws that force TST members to violate their religious beliefs include required provision of reading material with content that does not conform to science and/or that promotes a religious agenda, requiring how human tissue be disposed, mandating unnecessary and unwanted procedures that do not promote health and safety, requiring doctors withhold medical information, and restricting access to abortifacients.
