Governor, Attorney General ask judge to toss lawsuit by Satanic group

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Missouri’s governor and top law enforcer are asking a federal judge to throw out a lawsuit by a group of Satanic worshippers who allege the state’s abortion restrictions violate their religious beliefs and should be scrapped.

Attorneys for Gov. Jay Nixon and Attorney General Chris Koster filed a motion Tuesday to dismiss the suit filed in June in St. Louis by The Satanic Temple and a Missouri member identified only as “Mary Doe.”

The lawsuit questions a Missouri law requiring abortion providers to give pregnant women information about the physical characteristics of the fetus and the fetus’ ability to feel pain by at least 22 weeks. The law also requires a 72-hour waiting period after providing the woman with an opportunity to view an ultrasound and hear the fetus’ heartbeat.
