On April 1, 2015, Tennessee's state House will take the next step toward restoring common-sense policies on abortion and will take up measures providing informed consent and a 48-hour waiting period before an abortion may be performed as well as a requirement that abortion facilities be inspected and licensed as other out-patient surgical centers.
Click here to immediately contact the members of the committee and urge their strong support for HB 977 by Rep. Matthew Hill and Rep. Debra Moody and HB 1368 by Rep. Susan Lynn. (Please see list of members of the committee below.)
If you are unable to email, make some phone calls! (The members' phone numbers are listed below.) If your representative is on the House Health Committee, please give him/her a call. Pro-abortion members of the committee will be challenging the bills as Rep. Clemmons did at the subcommittee hearing on Tuesday. Your emails and phone calls in support of the bills are critically important to the pro-life members of the committee. Click here to view video of Tuesday's hearing (the first bill HB977 begins at 52:39 of the video).
Supporters are encouraged to attend the meeting of the committee, Wednesday, April 1, 1:30 p.m. (CDT) in House Hearing Room 16, Legislative Plaza. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Tennessee Right to Life (615)298-LIFE.
Thank you for encouraging our state legislators to stand for life and protect Tennessee's women, girls and unborn children.
