    Satanic Temple strikes out against new Texas abortion rules

    Burial and cremation are religious rituals, right?  Therefore, the government cannot impose them on people, even if they possess an aborted fetus.

    The controversial religious group boldly declared its members would not comply with the Texas Department of Health and Human Services’s new enforcement plans, citing First Amendment concerns.

    “The Satanic Temple believes burial rites are a well-established component of religious practice. This is undisputed in the entirety of US legal history,” the group said in a statement published on its homepage, adding that the Temple’s belief in the “inviolability of the body” stands in direct conflict with the new rules.”

    The First Amendment protects our right to practice our beliefs, and under the Religious Freedom Reform Act (RFRA), the State must present a compelling reason for why they want to enforce rules that inhibit adherence to our religious practices,” the group continued in the release also posted on Instagram.
