Planned Parenthood Has A New Ally – Satanists Challenge Abortion Law In Missouri

Planned Parenthood and Satanists – this is one of the most appropriate pairings in human history.

Missouri has reportedly doubled its abortion capacity this year “thanks to the Satanic Temple and Planned Parenthood,” who have worked in tandem to fight the state’s restrictions on abortion.

With some of the most clearly defined regulations on abortion in the nation, Missouri had managed to lower the number of abortion facilities to a single clinic, but a second Missouri clinic opened its doors recently and two others plan on following soon.

Planned Parenthood has battled against state regulations requiring abortion clinics to meet the same surgical center standards as full hospitals and for their doctors to have hospital privileges, and in April a federal court sided with the abortion giant…

…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.”

On Monday, the Satanic Temple argued in a Missouri court that the state’s abortion restrictions violate members’ rights to free religious practice. BreitBart

Informed Consent violates the First Amendment claim Satanists.

Informed consent laws require patients seeking abortions to read pamphlets designed to dissuade them from choosing the procedure. Often, the pregnant person must also receive an ultrasound. Six states require that patients are told that personhood begins at conception and 13 states require that patients are told about the fetus’ ability to feel pain, according to the Guttmacher Institute. Twenty-seven states have mandatory waiting periods and just four states have 72-hour waiting periods, the longest in the country.

Missouri’s law mandating that abortion providers get “admitting privileges at nearby hospitals and retrofit their facilities to meet surgical center standards” was rolled back by a federal judge in April, thus paving the way for multiple clinics to open up shop. The crushing blow has offered The Satanic Temple a window of opportunity to attack two other anti-abortion provisions in the state: one requiring women to read anti-abortion pamphlets and another requiring them to wait 72 hours between their initial consultations and a second appointment before the abortion can commence.

The Satanic Temple argued in a Missouri court this past Monday that the two laws violate their religious beliefs, because apparently their religion “prizes rational, independent thought” which would be supplanted if they were forced to read anti-abortion pamphlets and “consider a religious proposition with which they do not agree” during the 72-hour waiting period.

RNC Video Highlights Global Failures Of Single-Payer Health Care Systems

The push for government-funded health care used to be just the fringes of the Democratic Party now there is a party consensus for single-payer health care.   The Democrat candidates who have shown interest in 2020 are for single-payer.

Video:  Global Failures of Single-Payer

The Republican National Committee has released a new video highlighting various global reports that exemplify the failures of single-payer health care systems.

The video was included in an RNC press release Wednesday after Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I., Vt.) proposed his “Medicare for All” single-payer health care plan. The RNC video claimed the proposal is unaffordable with a price tag of $32 trillion, and would most likely be paid, in part, with a tax increase.

The video starts with a question, “What does single-payer ‘Medicare for All’ look like in the real world?” The video goes on to feature clips from news reports around the world, including from France, Canada, England and Scotland.

The first clip shows a hospital with the reporter saying, “this morning, there is, what it calls, a humanitarian crisis in public hospitals.”  FreeBeacon
