Following states like Alabama, some Tennessee lawmakers are considering similar legislation that would basically prohibit all abortion.
The state Senate recently hosted a study session, including testimony from pro-lifers and pro-choicers.
ABC News reported, “Tennessee lawmakers said Monday they are considering whether to seek one of the nation’s strictest abortion bans even as such laws continue to be struck down in court.
At issue is a proposal to prohibit abortion once a pregnancy is detected. While a similar bill stalled in the Republican-controlled Statehouse earlier this year, backers are renewing efforts now to collect enough support ahead of the 2020 legislative session.”
Senator Janice Bowling just said this is the bill that could overturn Roe v. Wade.
