Tennessee TRAP Law, Requiring Doctors to Have Hospital Admitting Privileges, Passes Senate

Robin Marty

All doctors performing abortions would need to have hospital privileges in order to provide the procedure.

Tennessee is one step closer to passing a new TRAP law, with bill that requires all doctors providing abortions to have hospital privileges passing the senate.

According to the Associated Press, “The legislation would require physicians performing abortions to hold hospital privileges in either the home or adjacent county of the woman seeking an abortion.”

The bill, which has already passed the House, will now head to the governor’s desk to be signed into law.
