Dr. Scott Lively talks about the “True Church of Satan,” as a Satanic Temple in Texas challenges the Heartbeat Bill.
The religion does not have or believe in gods; however, it filed a letter with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, requesting its members to be able to have access to abortion pills on the grounds of freedom of religion.
This comes after the state of Texas passed the most restrictive abortion laws in the nation. Under what is now called the Heartbeat Bill, abortions after six weeks of pregnancy are banned.
This is met with controversy as many don’t even realize they’re pregnant during the first six weeks.
There are also no exceptions to the new law, not even for rape or incest. Further, the Texas law allows anyone to file a lawsuit against someone who helped another get an abortion, with fines that could amount to $10,000.
“Fetal heartbeat” is defined in the new law as cardiac activity or steady and repetitive rhythmic contraction of the fetal heart within the gestational sac. It claims that pregnant women could use that signal to determine the likelihood that her unborn child can survive to full-term birth.
Previously, abortions in Texas were prohibited after about 20 weeks, while pill-induced abortions were barred 10 weeks down. Records showed that more than 56,600 abortions were performed on Texas residents in 2019.
The Satanic Temple is based in Salem, Massachusetts, and it says that its members hold bodily autonomy sacred. Its co-founder, Lucien Greaves, also said in a statement that abortion rituals are an important facet of its belief. (Related: Vaccine mandates similar to forcing people into taking the Mark of the Beast, warns Scott Lively – Brighteon.TV.)
Inviolable, subject to one’s own will
The third tenet of the Temple is that “One’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own vill alone.” This claims that the obstacle of abortion restrictions that impose on procedures should not apply to its members as it violates their beliefs.
Greaves said, “We’ve ritualized and centralized the abortion process so that beforehand somebody needing an abortion can come to us for preliminary counseling in which there’s these affirmations that attest that they made their choice within their understanding of the best available options and that this is the right choice for them, and that they did it in line with their religious tenets, which are our own.”
He also said in an interview that there is a similar counseling process after the abortion takes place.
According to the church’s reproductive rights spokeswoman, “No Christian would tolerate a law that insists state counseling is necessary before someone can be baptized. Our members are justly entitled to religious liberty in order to practice our rituals as well.”
The Satanic Temple wants to retain access to abortion pills using its Religious Freedom Restoration Act rights. The Texas legislation made it all the way to the U.S. Supreme court after a group of abortion clinics and advocates requested the law to be blocked.
It is using religious liberty to exempt its members from abortion laws. The argument is similar to that of Hobby Lobby, which refused to provide contraceptive coverage to its employees despite mandates through the federal Affordable Care Act.
The Satanic Temple plans on continuing its work, even if the FDA disallows distribution of abortion pharmaceuticals on religious grounds.
Greaves also acknowledged that the matter will likely continue beyond Texas, as other states are looking to adopt similar bills.
The Texas Right to Life called the bill’s signing a “landmark victory,” but added that more comprehensive measures are still waiting for a vote in Legislature.
“Texas Right to Life reminds our elected officials of their solemn duty to protect the lives of their citizens, especially the most vulnerable and innocent Texans in the womb. The signing of the Texas Heartbeat Act marks a historic step in the battle to protect Life,” the organization said in a statement.

Plandemic, Voter Fraud, Afghanistan: All Parts of The Great Reset
If you still consider “conspiracy theorist” to be a pejorative, you’re not paying enough attention.
What do Covid-19, 2020 (and beyond) election fraud, and our disastrous abandoning of American citizens in Afghanistan have to do with one another? They’re all parts of the globalist plan to usher in a new era of Neo-Marxism in a depopulated world. This is The Great Reset unfolding before our eyes, and the only way we can stop it (other than through constant prayer) is to stand together and spread the truth.
Covid-19’s attachment to The Great Reset is obvious, though we continue to post about it daily. Voter fraud is a bit less obvious but nonetheless easy to recognize when we understand that people like Joe Biden, Justin Trudeau, and Emmanuel Macron are pushing to “Build Back Better” under the precepts of Neo-Marxism.
The Afghanistan betrayal in August, 2021, is harder to associate with The Great Reset, but it’s definitely just as attached. We can see this is the unwillingness of the Biden regime to extend the deadline to withdraw despite American lives put clearly in harm’s way. We can see it in the needlessly abandoned military equipment that was conspicuously left intact; disabling a Black Hawk takes minutes but they were given to the Taliban in pristine working condition. Then, there’s the pallets of hundred dollar bills left for them. If you think all of this was just irresponsible governance, you probably think Barack Obama is out of politics, too.
Weakening America’s standing in the world and empowering the Chinese Communist Party and others to engage fully with our enemies in a globalist cabal are beneficial to the architects of The Great Reset, and both happened in one fell swoop in August.
These truths need to be spread. As a conservative network of news outlets, we are swimming upstream against the forces of mainstream media. We are getting canceled across the board by Big Tech. We will continue to spread the truth to millions, but we desperately need help to spread the truth to a wider range of people. This is where you come in.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring proper news and opinions to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal or Bitcoin as well. Bitcoin: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
Our network is currently comprised of nine sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Truth. Based. Media.
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- American Conservative Movement
- Conservative Playbook
- Our Gold Guy
We are also building partnerships with great conservative sites like The Liberty Daily and The Epoch Times to advance the message as loudly as possible, and we’re always looking for others with which to partner.
Also, we could use contributions of content. If you write or want to start writing and you share our patriotic, conservative, America First ideology, contact us. The contact form on this and all pages on the site goes directly to me.
Some of our content is spread across multiple sites. Other pieces of content are unique. We write most of what we post but we also draw from those willing to allow us to share their quality articles, videos, and podcasts. We collect the best content from fellow conservative sites that give us permission to republish them. We’re not ego-driven; I’d much rather post a properly attributed story written by experts like Dr. Joseph Mercola or Natural News than rewrite it like so many outlets like to do. We’re not here to take credit. We’re here to spread the truth.
While donations are the best way to help, you can also support us by buying through our sponsors:
- MyPillow: Use promo code “NOQ” to get up to 66% off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- Freedom Phone: Use promo code “MAGA” and get $50 off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- OurGoldGuy: Tell them we sent you in your request to buy gold and it will help us… AND (wait for it) you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
We know we could make a lot more money if we sold out like so many “conservative” publications out there. You won’t find Google ads on our site for a reason. Yes, they’re lucrative, but I don’t like getting paid by minions of Satan (I don’t like Google very much if you couldn’t tell).
Time is short. As the world spirals towards The Great Reset, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going. Our promise is this: We will never sell out America. If that means we’re going to struggle for a while or even indefinitely, so be it. Integrity first. Truth first. America first.
Thank you and God Bless,
