Tennessee's Human Life Protection Act (SB 1257) is the legislative priority of Tennessee Right to Life and is sponsored by Senator Dolores Gresham (R-Somerville.) This legislation would take effect upon the reversal of Roe v Wade by the U.S. Supreme Court and would enact the full restoration of Tennessee's protective pre-Roe laws. Passage would also restore the right of Tennesseans to decide these public policies on abortion for ourselves.
"It has always been the priority of Tennessee's pro-life movement to restore the fullest possible protection to the largest number of unborn children and women in our state," said Brian Harris, president of Tennessee Right to Life. "While states like New York are moving to strip any limits to abortion--even at the moments before birth---Tennessee wants to be known for protecting our children."
Please contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee immediately to encourage their support for SB 1257.
