Tennessee Wants Voters to Decide on Total Abortion Ban

Robin Marty

A vote to add an amendment to ban abortion is on the docket for the state senate.

The state of Tennessee is in the process of voting to put a constitutional amendment on the 2014 ballot regarding a state ban of abortion.  The senate, which has an anti-choice majority, is likely to pass the bill.

Via WSMV – Nashville:

The state Senate is scheduled to take up a resolution that would remove abortion rights from the state constitution Monday.The vote is the third and final vote in the Senate. If it passes, the constitutional amendment could be on the 2014 general election ballot for voters to consider.

Of course, with 94 percent of the counties lacking any abortion providers, an all out ban on the procedure is practically in effect as it is.
