JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Another member of the Satanic Temple is suing Missouri over its abortion laws.

The Satanic Temple announced the lawsuit Monday. The anonymous pregnant woman's attorney says the state's informed consent laws violate her religious beliefs, which are to follow scientific understanding of the world.

The booklets say abortion will end "the life of a separate, unique, living human being."

Members of the Satanic Temple don't believe in a literal Satan but see the biblical Satan as a metaphor for rebellion against tyranny.

The attorney general's office is defending the state laws and didn't immediately return an Associated Press request for comment.

Another Satanic Temple member's challenge to the state's informed-consent law is pending at the Missouri Supreme Court. The other woman who sued has already received an abortion.
