Satanists Using Hobby Lobby Ruling to Shield Women From Anti-Choice Laws
This reminds me of the Louisiana legislator who was horrified to learn that her school voucher bill would benefit Muslim schools as well as her pet fundy ones.
I learned a long time ago to be careful what you wish for. When the Supreme Court ruled that Hobby Lobby could use its religion to violate parts of a federal law, anyone with half a brain knew that the floodgates had just been opened.
Because that ruling wasn’t just about Hobby Lobby being given the right to deny four different types of birth control to their employees, it essentially established the precedent for people or businesses to use their religion to try to get their own way and ignore federal laws.
Similar to how a woman in Florida is suing a health clinic for religious discrimination because she admitted during her interview that she wouldn’t prescribe birth control to patients because it was against her religion.
Well, in a very interesting take on this whole situation, The Satanic Temple is urging women to print out a letter they’ve drafted to present to their physicians that exempts them from having to comply with several of the anti-choice laws that have been passed in many states around the country.
They’re calling this push, “The Right to Accurate Medical Information.”
Many states have anti-choice laws that require things like women to have a sonogram performed, or basically be subjected to conservative “pro-life” propaganda, before having an abortion.
