UPDATE: Thank you for contacting key members of the committee, HB2577 passed the House Health Committee Wednesday afternoon on a voice vote. It will now be heard in the House Calendar & Rules Committee and then will receive a vote by the full House.
On Wednesday, March 30, Tennessee will take its next steps toward greater protection for life as Governor Haslam's legislation to reform the operation of abortion facilities receives a critical vote. HB 2577 will be taken up Wednesday morning, 11:00 a.m., (CDT) by members of the State House Health Committee chaired by pro-life state Rep. Cameron Sexton (R-Crossville). The bill is sponsored in the House by longtime pro-life leader, state Rep. Bill Dunn (R-Knoxville) and includes increased inspection and record-keeping requirements at abortion facilities and prohibits the purchase and sale of human fetal remains in Tennessee.
Please contact these members of the House Health Committee today and encourage others to do so as well. Urge each to support the Governor's bill to increase inspections and record-keeping requirements at abortion facilities and prevent such facilities from profiting from the sale of baby body parts. Tell them Pro-life Tennessee says YES on SB 2577!
