Abortion Has Been Outlawed In Tennessee.
The Supreme Court voted to overturn Roe v. Wade, causing a trigger law passed by Tennessee Republicans to outlaw abortion. We have feared this for years – a half-century long federal guarantee of our right to an abortion is gone.
Tennessee’s trigger law now criminalizes any abortion unless necessary to prevent death or “serious risk of substantial and irreversible impairment of a major bodily function.” This abortion ban puts millions of Tennesseeans in danger and takes away their bodily autonomy.
Democrats are going to keep pushing back against anti-choice representatives and legislation any chance we get. We’re working to support pro-choice candidates and legislators as well as abortion rights groups in the state of Tennessee.
We’re prepared to fight for the safety and autonomy of all Tennesseeans.
