On Wednesday, Tennessee's state Senate will take its final step towards restoring common-sense policies on abortion and will vote on 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.
Restoration of a 48-hour waiting period is even more critical as neighboring states have recently passed and/or considering longer waiting periods than Tennessee.
The Senate session is scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m.(cdt) and then again at 3:00 p.m. These bills may be heard at either session and we will provide updates on timing of the votes as they become available.
