In a statement, the Satanic Temple said that it will use the Supreme Court’s recent Hobby Lobby decision to exempt its believers from state-mandated informed consent laws that require women considering abortions to read pro-life material.

Informed consent or “right to know” laws state that women seeking elective abortions be provided with information about alternatives to the procedure, often couched in language that attempts to personify the fetus. According to the Guttmacher Institute, 35 states currently have informed consent laws, and of those, 33 require that the woman be told the gestational age of the fetus.

In some states, that information consists of pro-life propaganda that links abortion to a higher incidence of breast and ovarian cancers, or discusses “post-abortion syndrome,” a mental condition not recognized by any major medical or psychiatric organization.

Because the Satanic Temple bases its belief “regarding personal health…on the best scientific understanding of the world, regardless of the religious or political beliefs of others,” it claims that state-mandated information with no basis in scientific fact violates its “religious” beliefs.

Spokesperson Lucien Greaves said that the Supreme Court’s recent Hobby Lobby decision bolsters their case. “While we feel we have a strong case for an exemption regardless of the Hobby Lobby ruling,” he said, “the Supreme Court has decided that religious beliefs are so sacrosanct that they can even trump scientific fact. This was made clear when they allowed Hobby Lobby to claim certain contraceptives were abortifacients, which in fact they are not.”

As Thanksgiving approaches, we share with you a special story about a trooper who helped save a little boy’s life. On November 1, Tpr. Billy Herrera of the Florida Highway Patrol was off duty at his home when he heard a knock on his door. A neighbor was holding her 3-year-old grandson who was not breathing and was unresponsive. Tpr. Herrera, who graduated from the 125th Recruit Class on September 12, quickly went into action and began performing CPR. During CPR the young boy had a seizure. Herrera let the seizure pass and the boy began to breathe and became responsive to the trooper. Rescue workers arrived and took the boy to a local hospital where he made a full recovery. Congratulations to Tpr. Herrera on his life-saving actions and a job well done!
