(LifeSiteNews) — Self-professed satanists are reportedly planning to open an abortion facility disgustingly named after pro-life U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito’s mother. Alito wrote the opinion in the landmark Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case, which rolled back 49 years of federal abortion precedent by overturning Roe v. Wade, thereby eliminating the federal “right to abortion.”
According to The Satanic Temple (TST), however, that life-saving Supreme Court decision might never have happened if Alito’s mother had just had the opportunity to murder her son in the womb.
TST, which has frequently grabbed headlines for attempting to mock and undercut Christianity in the public square and has claimed abortion as one of its religious “rituals,” will open the abortion facility in New Mexico, a state that openly promotes abortion in stark contrast to neighboring pro-life Texas.
According to a Wednesday report by Fox News, the satanists’ baby-killing facility will be named “The Samuel Alito’s Mom’s Satanic Abortion Clinic.”
Abortion-seeking women who go to the “clinic” can access “telehealth screenings and appointments” by the group’s newly minted medical services branch, TST Health. Women can then be prescribed chemical abortions drugs that they can purchase from a pharmacy.

Girls and women ages 17 and up who reside in New Mexico and whose preborn babies are at a maximum of 11 weeks “and medically eligible for an abortion,” will be able to utilize the satanic group’s services, Fox News reported.
TST co-founder Malcolm Jarry explained the rationale for naming the so-called “clinic” after Justice Alito’s mother Rose, an Italian-American former schoolteacher who passed away in 2013 at age 98. Rose Alito’s Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated at Our Lady of Sorrows Church in Hamilton, New Jersey.
“In 1950, Samuel Alito’s mother did not have options, and look what happened,” Jarry said, according to a February 1 press release.
“Prior to 1973, doctors who performed abortions could lose their licenses and go to jail,” he said. “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.”
Erin Helian, executive director of campaigns for TST, said the group “is proud to expand reproductive options for our members,” adding that the derisively named “clinic” in New Mexico “is just the beginning.”
“We will remain steadfast as we continue the fight to uphold reproductive justice in the United States,” she said.
The press release noted that TST has entered the pro-abortion space before, filing lawsuits against Texas’ pro-life legislation and contending that the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, together with “federal and state Religious Freedom Restoration Acts,” provide legal protections for the satanic group’s so-called “abortion ritual,” which they say “is an essential part of religious practice.”

Citizens for a Pro-Life Society director Monica Miller, Ph.D., told LifeSiteNews that the fact that TST has publicly aligned itself with the pro-abortion cause, even going so far as to help women obtain drugs to poison and kill their preborn babies, proves the demonic nature of abortion.
“That Satan worshippers are on the side of child killing explicitly tells the world that abortion is evil,” Miller said in a Wednesday email.
She said the satanists’ New Mexico abortion facility is “a temple of death” and suggested that the overt connection between abortion and satanism is accurate.
According to Miller, “in some ways, this is more honest of them to blatantly link baby killing to the pit of Hell, as all abortion centers are from that same hideous pit.”
“I hate to have to say it, but Satanists’ support for the killing of the unborn is nothing new,” Miller told LifeSite. She explained that her pro-life organization “has had our demonstrations counter-demonstrated by the Detroit Satanic Temple, making a hideous public spectacle of themselves.”
UPDATE (03/07/23): Walgreens won't dispense abortion pills in 20 states
The pressure is paying off. Walgreens' plan to dispense abortion pills nationwide is now in tatters, with the pharmaceutical giant announcing that it won't mail the pills to, or sell them within, 20 states.
The news comes after 20 Republican attorneys general warned CVS and Walgreens that doing so would be in violation of federal law and that they were opening themselves to penalties.
But we can't rest on our laurels with this boycott: Walgreens and CVS will only listen to us when their profits are threatened — we need a HUGE boycott so that blood money they get from selling abortion pills is dwarfed by the profits they lose when pro-life America shops elsewhere.
Even Politico admitted in its reporting that "pressure" from pro-life voters like you helped change Walgreens' plans, so now we're asking you to take the next step: simply share this petition with your friends and ask them to join the boycott.
Walgreens and CVS will begin selling mifepristone — a powerful chemical that kills unborn children in the womb — if pro-life America does not ACT NOW.
Pro-life Americans MUST STOP the widespread sale and distribution of mifepristone by sending a message that only big-box stores will understand: A NATIONAL BOYCOTT OF WALGREENS AND CVS.
Walgreens and CVS are the newest back-door channels for the pro-abortion movement, now that the Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade.
Will you act now to STOP abortion drugs from reaching your pharmacy?
Our work in the pro-life movement is FAR from over, especially now that Walgreens and CVS have chosen to push deadly drugs in their stores and in our communities!
SIGN and SEND a message to Walgreens and CVS! This is completely unacceptable!
We must stop abortion from reaching our pharmacies and stop the abortion industry from poisoning our communities — before it’s too late.
These big-box stores respond only to profit. The pro-life movement must enact a national boycott if the abortion industry dares flood our neighborhoods!
SIGN and SEND a strong message to Walgreens and CVS: unless they immediately reverse course, the entire pro-life movement will BOYCOTT their stores!
SIGN NOW and send a clear message!

The Satanic Temple has frequently made headlines for explicitly attempting to undercut Christianity in the public square by engaging in controversial and blasphemous activities.
Last summer, a local chapter of the TST drew outrage after planning to set up a booth at a so-called “family friendly” LGBT “pride” event in Idaho. The group withdrew from the event following backlash.
