Satanists Say: Abortion Rights Are Religious Rights?!

The Satanic Temple is threatening to file a lawsuit against the state of Texas over new regulations that require abortion providers to either bury or cremate aborted babies, arguing that the rules violate the group's religious beliefs because it promotes the idea of "fetal personhood."

As Texas' Department of Health and Human Services finalized the new rules last month that will take effect on Dec. 19 and require hospitals and abortion clinics to dispose of aborted babies through burial or cremation, The Satanic Temple based in Salem, Massachusetts, released a statement on its website Saturday decrying the rule.

The statement argues that the new rule, not a legislatively passed law, conflicts with religious liberties because "burial rites are a 'well-established component of religious practice.'"
