The Devil Goes Down to New Mexico

The Satanic Temple isn’t just promoting killing unborn babies in abortions anymore. It’s actually killing them through a new “religious” abortion practice they have opened in New Mexico.

The satanic group will officially launch a new “religious medical services arm,” TST Health, to begin doing abortions. The Satanic Temple believes aborting unborn babies is a religious “ritual” and compares it to communion or baptism for Christians.

Be informed, not misled.

The name of its first “telehealth” abortion practice doubles as a covert death wish to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, who wrote the decision that overturned Roe v. Wade last year.

"The Samuel Alito’s Mom’s Satanic Abortion Clinic" in New Mexico will offer abortion drugs to women ages 17 and up who are up to 11 weeks of pregnancy. The FDA does not recommend abortion drugs after 10 weeks.

"In 1950, Samuel Alito’s mother did not have options, and look what happened," said Malcolm Jarry, a co-founder of The Satanic Temple. "Prior to 1973, doctors who performed abortions could lose their licenses and go to jail. The clinic’s name serves to remind people just how important it is to have the right to control one’s body and the potential ramifications of losing that right." 

The Satanic Temple was co-founded by Jarry and Lucien Graves a decade ago to be a Satanic faith-based organization that would meet the requirements to receive government benefits and privileges as a religious organization, but without belief in a deity. Its stated mission is to "encourage benevolence and empathy, reject tyrannical authority, advocate practical common sense, oppose injustice, and undertake noble pursuits."  

Satanic Temple's latest "noble pursuit."

According to a press release from the group, “anyone in New Mexico seeking to perform The Satanic Temple’s abortion ritual will be able to receive free online medical services.”

To be eligible for the clinic, the online appointment must take place in New Mexico. The person must also have a New Mexico mailing address and be in the first trimester of pregnancy.

Licensed medical workers will screen patients during a virtual appointment, and then prescribe abortion drugs through pharmacies that will mail them in “a discreet package,” the group said. Women will be charged a pharmacy fee of about $90, it continued. The satanic group also set up a 24-hour abortion hotline.

Eventually, The Satanic Temple leaders said they want to expand their new abortion practice to states that ban abortions. Their group has filed lawsuits in several states challenging their legal protections for unborn babies on religious grounds.

“TST is proud to expand reproductive options for our members. This is just the beginning,” said Erin Helian, executive director of campaigns, in a statement. “We will remain steadfast as we continue the fight to uphold reproductive justice in the United States.”

The Satanic Temple in the United States is claiming the moral high ground of fighting to uphold so-called reproductive justice in the country.

About The Satanic Temple.

The satanic group claims killing unborn babies in abortions is a religious ritual, and restricting it violates its “fundamental tenets,” according to an article on Glenn Beck’s website. Its leaders also claim pro-life laws are rooted in “Christian nationalism” – even though people of all faiths and no faith believe basic human rights should apply to all human beings.

The supposed religion claims to have “seven fundamental tenets,” including one that teaches, “One’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone.” In its lawsuits, the group claims abortion restrictions and bans violate this teaching as well as an “abortion ritual” that its members perform.

It likens the “ritual” slaughter of unborn babies to communion or baptism for Christians. In 2020, it even raffled off an abortion to raise money for its lawsuits.

“The fact that the Satanic Temple plans to set up a virtual abortion clinic in New Mexico speaks volumes about who is really behind the abortion agenda,” Elisa Martinez, founder of New Mexico Alliance for Life says. 

“Their willingness to flaunt the practice of ending innocent human life as a ritualistic sacrifice shows how New Mexico public officials have cooperated with this evil by turning the state into the thriving taxpayer-funded abortion capital of the Southwest and even America,” Martinez said.

The Satanic Temple claims to have 700,000 members internationally, and it is a recognized religion by the IRS.

About the "Satanic Abortion Ritual."

The Satanic Temple gives the following pre-amble to a "religious" abortion:

States are passing laws premised on the idea that fetal tissue has personhood, or is a unique and distinct human life. We don’t agree with that position. We believe it’s a religious position, and we don’t believe states have any right to put any impositions on us. 

The Satanic Temple's pamphlet on the "abortion ritual" describes the procedure as the following:

This is what "evil" looks like.

The Satanic Abortion Ritual is a destruction ritual that serves as a protective rite. Its purpose is to cast off notions of guilt, shame, and mental discomfort that a patient may be experiencing due to choosing to have a legal and medically safe abortion. The Temple further affirms abortion as "consistent with the ideals of liberty and freedom. Be proud of pursuing what you want for your life despite opposition."

To begin the ritual, the woman looks at herself in a mirror right before the abortion procedure, reminding herself of her "personhood and [her] responsibility to [her]rself." She then recites the third tenant of the Satanic Temple, which states: "One’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone."

When she is ready for the abortion procedure, the woman recites the fifth tenant, which says, "Beliefs should conform to one's best scientific understanding of the world. One should take care never to distort scientific facts to fit one's beliefs."

Once the abortion is complete, the woman recites the "personal affirmation," which is, "By my body, my blood. By my will, it is done." The Temple says the abortion ritual helps one "feel doubts dissipating and your confidence growing as you have just undertaken a decision that affirms your autonomy and free will."


There is much more to be said about this issue because the founders of the Satanic Temple make a false argument regarding religious liberty. So far they've gotten away with it.

My pastor's heart would direct you to note that the "abortion ritual" uses words that counterfeit the Gospel, like my "blood", my "choice", my "body", my "life" and my "will."

These are aspects of human experience that have value because God has given them value.

Satan was cast out of Heaven because he was intent on replacing God.

Biblical Christianity is too often replaced by secular humanism. 

To the degree that we remove God from our lives and our culture, Satan attempts to fill the void with a religion that puts man, not God, on the throne of human experience.

Satan would deceptively use secular humanism to replace God.

Paul, writing to the Church in Corinth said this (II Corinthians 11:13-15) 

  • "For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ."
  • "And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light."
  • Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works."

Peter wrote this: (1 Peter 5:8 ) “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:”

Be Informed. Be Vigilant. Be Sober. Be Discerning. Be Engaged. Be Prayerful.
