As we take stock of 2019, we couldn't be more thankful for what God has done through the faithful efforts of pro-life Tennesseans. It truly has been a landmark year for Tennessee Right to Life as we witnessed the following:
Received over 550 calls from women and girls seeking abortions since last December, when Planned Parenthood suspended abortion services in Nashville. Through the generosity of faithful donors, we hired Diana to consult with abortion-vulnerable women and to identify resources to assist these women and families. Diana brings 15 years of experience working with women considering abortion and is passionate about helping women make informed decisions for Life;
Long sought Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the country's foremost promoter and provider of abortions, withdrawal from the federal Title X (ten) family planning program because of President Trump's insistence that abortion providers be excluded, mirroring Tennessee's policy which has been successful in striking 10 MILLION dollars from Planned Parenthood's budget since 2011;
Passage of the Human Life Protection Act which will take effect upon the reversal of Roe v Wade, in whole or in part, by the U.S. Supreme Court. It will enact the full restoration of Tennessee's protective pre-Roe laws. The act also restores the right of Tennesseans to decide these public policies on abortion for ourselves.;
After four long years, the case challenging Tennessee’s Pro-life informed consent and 48-hour waiting laws was heard in the Middle Tennessee Federal District Court in Nashville by Judge Friedman from Detroit. The Right to Life-initiated law is credited as one of the reasons the abortion rate in Tennessee is the lowest it’s been since 1974. Click here to view Tennessee's latest abortion numbers.
Tennessee's pro-life leadership is serving as a model for other states as pro-life leaders and legislators seek to replicate our successes.
This has only been possible due to God's blessing and your faithful help and financial support.
Together we are truly building a culture of Life in Tennessee and beyond.
On Giving Tuesday, you can help us to continue our work towards protecting Life in Tennessee.
