Planned Parenthood & Satanic Temple Help Expand Abortion in Missouri

(Breitbart) 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.

U.S. District Judge Howard Sachs granted a preliminary injunction invalidating requirements for the state’s abortion clinics to meet standards for surgical centers and for their doctors to have hospital privileges, citing a U.S. Supreme Court ruling striking down similar restrictions in Texas, which deemed those laws unnecessary and unconstitutional.

“Missouri has not complied with that decision,” Sachs, of the Western District of Missouri in Kansas City, wrote.

Shortly afterward, Planned Parenthood expressed its intention to expand its abortion services in the state. On Monday, Planned Parenthood Great Plains announced plans to offer abortion services at two more clinics in Missouri, including its midtown Kansas City clinic, which now offers medication abortion services.

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. The organization challenged two Missouri laws: one that requires patients to look at anti-abortion literature and another that obliges them to wait 72 hours between their initial consultations and second appointments for their abortions…

    Men who support abortion, do it only for selfish reasons of wickedness. They are men who refuse to bear the financial or emotional burden of their own unwanted child. Men who support raping a child and having abortion at the ready to butcher the evidence. Men who cheat on their wives and need abortion to murder the mistress’s baby. Men who are making huge money from the industry of slaughtering babies. Or men who are sociopaths or psychopaths that get a rush, or even aroused when they snuff out a human life.
    No good man, no decent man, no humane man can support abortion.

      You neglected to list also those women who are “inconvenienced” by their pregnancy. Unfortunately, the FATHERS don’t get ANY say as to whether or not their offspring will be allowed to live. The fathers are REQUIRED to support their offspring, if they make it out of the womb. There is NO commensurate responsibility to allow the father’s input regarding an abortion.

        I agree completely. I was only referring to men who support abortion because the picture used, showed a man holding a sign in support of abortion. The majority of men do not support abortion in my opinion.

    This association is certainly logical, for Liberals. They deny the existence of God, but they sure love SATAN!!!!
