The magazine's November-December issue discussed the Samuel Alito's Mom's Satanic Abortion Clinic in New Mexico, which is operated by The Satanic Temple (TST). The piece written by contributor Arielle Domb, noted how Rose Alito – mother of incumbent Supreme Court Associate Justice Samuel Alito – never considered abortion for herself and even expressed her opposition to it before her passing in 2013.
Her son Samuel has garnered controversy due to the overturn of the Roe v. Wade decision in June 2022, which immediately criminalized abortion in almost half of the states. Because of this, TST channeled its efforts to establish a new healthcare enterprise in Rose's honor.
According to the Cosmo article, while the New Mexico clinic's name may be "outlandish" and "clickbait-ish," it is a legitimate medical entity run by an accredited clinical team that offers abortion within state lines. The clinic prescribes abortion pills up until the eleventh week of pregnancy at $91 per set and offers 24/7 phone access to licensed medical personnel.

Even the magazine's official Instagram account posted a step-by-step procedure for a "satanic ceremonial ritual" when taking the abortifacients. The post notably referred to the expelled fetus as an "aborted tissue," disregarding the fact that this baby has a life and heartbeat of its own while inside the womb.
Domb wrote in her piece that TST chose New Mexico as it has about 3,300 members in the Land of Enchantment. New Mexico is also considered an abortion-rights stronghold without laws dictating gestational limits, age restrictions, waiting periods and mandatory counseling. Unlike its neighbors Texas and Oklahoma, it's still legal for doctors and nurse practitioners to prescribe abortion pills remotely and have them mailed to patients at home.
However, the Cosmo article generated much backlash for its feature on the abortion clinic – and its promotion of infanticide.
YouTuber and hip-hop artist Ruslan Karaoglanov, known by the moniker Ruslan KD, expressed shock at the piece. He dubbed it "the most demonic thing I've ever seen" in a video. Karaoglanov wasn't alone in his sentiment, however.
A Fox News op-ed penned by Jordan Lorence denounced the clinic as "a sinister charade and an assault on religious freedom." He warned that TST "threatens everyone’s religious liberty protections with its ill-advised plan linking its pro-abortion propaganda with alleged religious practices." One commenter agreed with Lorence, writing: "This is meant to enrage us."
Lorence concluded his op-ed by urging TST to "drop this religious pretense and just advocate its pro-abortion views. The group’s masquerade as a religious group cloaks its disdain for religion and its efforts to disrupt legal protections for religious believers. That erodes the First Amendment rights that protect us all."
Tara Shaver, spokeswoman for Abortion Free New Mexico, said the clinic underscored her conviction that abortion is demonic child sacrifice. "Do our leaders realize that they have this unholy alliance with Satanists? I think it just serves to show the origins of abortion and the type of people that champion it," she remarked.
