Tennessee Ranks 3rd Nationally in the Percentage of Out-of-State Abortions
Because of a radical 4 to 1 ruling by the Tennessee Supreme Court in 2000, Tennessee now boasts a broader right to abortion than that recognized by Roe v. Wade or the U.S. Constitution. In 2008, 23.7% of abortions were sought by women residing out-of-state.
How Will Tennesseans Respond?
Approval of Amendment 1 on the November 2014 ballot would allow passage and enforcement of common sense policies designed to protect the health and safety of women and girls considering abortion.
