Planned Parenthood Suspends Abortions in Nashville


NASHVILLE, DECEMBER 11, 2018 Responding to the decision announced Monday by Planned Parenthood to suspend abortion services in Nashville:

"Planned Parenthood is the nation's largest provider and promoter of abortion and Nashville's Planned Parenthood facility is reputed to be the busiest abortion center in the Volunteer State," said Brian Harris, president of Tennessee Right to Life.

"With the suspension of abortion services in our state's largest city, Tennessee Right to Life is grateful for a Christmas miracle."

Describing a spike in phone calls to the organization's office from women seeking abortion appointments, Harris cited efforts to provide referrals to agencies and resources to assist abortion-vulnerable women and girls.

"With additional time, information, and alternatives we have witnessed changed hearts and minds of women who have in the last several days chosen life for their unborn children," said Harris. "Right to Life affirms the dignity of every person and we stand ready to assist any woman or girl in need of practical support to save the life of their unborn child." 

The Tennessean: "Planned Parenthood, the only abortion provider left in Nashville, suspends abortion services"
