Missouri Supreme Court Tosses Satanic Temple Case Against the State's Abortion Law

Missouri Supreme Court

This week, the Missouri Supreme Court dismissed a case brought by a woman who said the state's abortion laws violated her religion. The woman, identified as Mary Doe in the court filings, was a member of the Satanic Temple and claimed to have a religious belief that the fetus is not a person. Doe claimed her rights were violated by Missouri's 72 hour waiting period and requirements that she be provided an information booklet and an opportunity to see an ultrasound.  

In its opinion, the court found that Doe did not show how Missouri's abortion requirements violated her religious beliefs, as she was not required to read the materials or view the ultrasound.
