Do you remember when it was considered a conspiracy theory to believe that Satanists would offer child sacrifices through abortions?
Well now the Satanic Temple has publicly announced that the Supreme Court ruling on abortions in Texas has violated their constitutional right of freedom of religion by prohibiting their members to conduct child sacrifices.
The far left publication Salon has even went on record saying Satanists “may be the last, best hope to save abortion rights in Texas”.
The Satanic Temple also criticized Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton for denying Satanists the ability to perform abortion rituals.

Breitbart News had more on the story:
After The Satanic Temple announced its opposition to the Texas anti-abortion law, leftists have embraced the cult as a potentially helpful ally in the cause to keep abortion legal.
At Salon.com, Brett Bachman argued Satanists “may be the last, best hope to save abortion rights in Texas”:
As pro-choice and reproductive health groups are scrambling to make sense of Texas’ new, near-total abortion ban that went into effect this week, it appears their efforts to skirt the law are getting an unexpected boost from one organization in particular: The Satanic Temple.
Bachman was referring to a letter The Satanic Temple wrote to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) arguing its members should be allowed to purchase abortion pills in Texas under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) so as to be used in what the Temple referred to as their “Abortion Rituals”:
Other left-wing outlets were as equally gleeful in their support of The Satanic Temple’s fight to keep abortion legal. “Satanic Temple Floats Devilishly Clever Strategy To Dodge Texas Abortion Law,” stated a headline from HuffPost. “Why Satanists may be the last hope to take down Texas’s abortion bill,” echoed Fortune.

The Hill covered the story too:
The Satanic Temple (TST) is challenging the recently enacted abortion restrictions in Texas, citing religious freedoms.
The religion said on its website that it stands “ready to assist” any of its members who want to fight the law. It said it has lobbied the state for an exemption to the law under its own religious freedom law — Texas Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
The group said if the state declines to provide the exemption, then it will seek “judicial relief.”
The controversial abortion law bans virtually all abortions once a “fetal heartbeat” is detected — which usually occurs around six weeks into a pregnancy.
It also allows private citizens to sue those who perform or aid in an abortion in violation of the law and offers $10,000 for successful cases.
