Abortion activists are thanking Satanists this week for making it easier for Missouri women to abort their unborn babies.
Together, the abortion giant Planned Parenthood and The Satanic Temple have been fighting viciously to promote abortions and block efforts to protect unborn babies and moms in Missouri.
“Abortion access in Missouri is getting easier thanks to Planned Parenthood and Satanists,” a headline at the liberal news site Slate said Tuesday.
Breitbart reports the Satanists and the largest baby killing business in the country managed to gain a few victories in the state through their joint efforts this year.
For the past two years, the state has had one abortion clinic – the Planned Parenthood in St. Louis. But this month, Planned Parenthood is re-opening two more in Kansas City and Columbia after a federal judge blocked state abortion clinic regulations in April. The abortion chain hopes to re-open two additional abortion facilities later this year.
“Missouri’s recent stroke of good fortune in the reproductive rights realm may have to do with intervention from the fiery underworld,” Slate’s Christina Cauterucci wrote in reaction to the news.
Planned Parenthood and The Satanic Temple both have filed legal challenges against state abortion regulations.
These regulations have helped to saved thousands of unborn babies’ lives. After the abortion clinic regulations passed in 2005, five abortion facilities closed because they could not or would not comply. Abortion numbers also dropped steadily after the laws went into effect.
Here’s more from Breitbart:
The Satanic Temple has often lent its muscle to pro-abortion efforts alongside Planned Parenthood, and in this case has pressured Missouri legislators and worked through the courts to bring about a relaxing of abortion restrictions, according to reports. One of the Temple’s fundamental tenets is that “One’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone.”

… For years the Satanic Temple has been involved with lawsuits in Missouri fighting abortion regulations. The group also attempted to procure a religious waiver for a female Satanist who sought to circumvent the 72-hour requirement under pretense that it violated her religion. A judge eventually threw out the case because the woman was no longer pregnant.
The Satanic Temple has been on the forefront of the fight to protect and extend abortion rights throughout the nation, and in 2015 set up a crowdfunding website with Indiegogo “to challenge arbitrary, insulting abortion regulations,” especially the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.
In July, state lawmakers approved new abortion clinic regulations in reaction to Planned Parenthood’s lawsuit. However, they have not taken effect yet.
The state also is appealing the decision to block its 2005 abortion clinic regulations, but abortion clinics can re-open in the mean time.
The Satanic Temple also is challenging state abortion regulations in court this fall, arguing that laws requiring that women be provided information about their unborn babies violate their religious freedom.
The Missouri State Court of Appeals and United State Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit are scheduled to hear the case in September.
The Satanists also support Planned Parenthood by staging gruesome counter-protests against pro-lifers outside abortion clinics in the mid-west.
In April 2016, pro-life advocates outside of a Detroit, Michigan Planned Parenthood faced a disturbing scene when Satanists arrived wearing baby masks and carrying whips. Citizens for a Pro-Life Society organized the pro-life event as part of a larger #ProtestPP movement to expose the abortion giant’s deadly trade of aborting unborn babies and trafficking their body parts.
Last winter, Satanist leader Jex Blackmore wrote a blog about her experience aborting her unborn baby. She called the experience “surreal.”
Then on Good Friday in March, the group organized a counter-protest to mock pro-lifers who were holding an Easter prayer vigil outside of an Ann Arbor abortion facility, LifeNews reported.
