As we take stock of 2020, 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:
Phone calls each day from women and girls seeking abortions. 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;
- Passage of the Abortion Pill Reversal Act. The law would require abortion facilities to display signage informing women that a chemical (RU486) abortion may be reversed following the first dose of a two-pill protocol. It also requires a physician to directly provide the same information during informed consent, 48 hours prior to the abortion procedure. Abortion profiteers have challenged the law in federal court;
After five long years, the case challenging Tennessee’s Pro-life informed consent and 48-hour waiting laws was struck down by Senior United States District Judge Bernard A. Friedman. Tennessee's Attorney General is planning to appeal this decision to the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. The Right to Life-initiated law is credited as one of the reasons the abortion rate in Tennessee is near the lowest it’s been since 1974. Click here to view Tennessee's latest abortion numbers;
- Tennessee's High School Oratory Contest winner, Camille Floyd, places second in National Right to Life Oratory Contest;
The U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Tennessee's new targeted abortion prohibition can go into effect. The law makes it illegal to perform an abortion-based on a specific reason including circumstances where an abortion is sought because of the baby's gender, race or diagnosis of Down syndrome.
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 continue this work to protect Life in Tennessee.
