Target: The Satanic Temple spokesperson Lucien Greaves
Goal: Thank the Satanic Temple for campaigning to allow women to make their own reproductive decisions
Certain organizations are not always painted in a positive light, especially when they’re associated with Satan. The Satanic Temple, however, is making itself known as a pioneer of women’s rights. In a response to the recent Hobby Lobby ruling, the Temple has decided to campaign for religious exemptions to all illegal medical procedures. The Satanic Temple is one of the only groups fighting to protect women’s personal freedoms to factual reproductive health information and safe medical procedures.
Due to the latest ruling of the Hobby Lobby case, which declared that businesses could refuse to provide contraceptive care to women on the basis of religion, the Satanic Temple has decided to stand up for its own beliefs. The Temple is arguing that because any religious organization can usurp the law and decline to provide necessary medical care for women, the Temple should be allowed to also ignore laws restricting abortion. By doing so, women would be able to obtain an abortion, contraceptives, and correct medical information without preconditions, according to their own desires. The prosecutors (Hobby Lobby) in the Hobby Lobby case disseminated incorrect medical information that negatively affected the ruling. In the Satanic Temple’s fresh public statement, they say that women should be able to obtain correct medical facts “undiluted by false or incorrect information,” which is often given to patients by doctors who are forced to distribute conservative and erroneous medical facts to women.
Thank the Temple of Satan for its progressive stance in standing up for women’s rights to correct knowledge and bodily freedom.
Dear Lucien Greaves,
The Satanic Temple has recently made headlines by initiating an ambitious campaign in response to the Hobby Lobby ruling. While your group may not be popular because of rumors and falsities, the Temple of Satan is showing a true dedication to personal freedoms and protecting human rights. By making this campaign to help women obtain correct information and any medical procedures or devices they desire, you are standing up with and for women in ways that other groups and religions are not.
Your campaign will create the precedent of supporting and guarding individual freedoms of religion, belief, or affiliation. Thank you for beginning this movement to assist women in obtaining factually legitimate medical information and services according to their own desires.
[Your Name Here]
