Thank you to everyone who has emailed the sponsors and co-sponsors of legislation seeking to weaken the Human Life Protection Act, which is saving an estimated 900 children from being aborted in our state each month. The Human Life Protection Act is one of the strongest laws in the nation to protect unborn children and is working as legislators intended when they passed it in 2019.
The Human Life Protection Act is now under attack!
Senator Ferrell Haile and Representative Iris Rudder have filed a bill to weaken Tennessee law that is protecting the right to life of ALL unborn children.
The bill (HB1440/SB857), co-sponsored by Representatives Patsy Hazelwood, Esther Helton-Haynes, Mark White, Sam Whitson and Senators Richard Briggs, Becky Massey, Bill Powers and Ken Yager, would remove protections for some of Tennessee’s most vulnerable citizens by allowing some children to be aborted through certain exceptions.
Three more co-sponsors were added this week that need to hear from pro-life Tennesseans. Representatives Sabi Kumar, Pat Marsh and Jerome Moon added their names to this legislation that seeks to exclude some of the most vulnerable Tennesseans from this life saving legislation.
These sponsors and co-sponsors have been supportive of pro-life legislation in the past, but if their proposal becomes law, it will be the beginning of the efforts to chip away at Tennessee’s strong law. Nothing would please the abortion industry more than weakening the strongest pro-life law in the nation.
We cannot let this happen. Children’s lives depend on us.
Please contact the new co-sponsors today using the link below and ask them to withdrawal their support of this bill!
