Privacy under attack in TN
The anti-abortion resolution to amend the TN constitution did not go forward today in the Senate committee, but it is still in consideration.

SJR127, the dangerous constitutional amendment exempting abortion from the privacy guarantee of the Tennessee Constitution, has been
deferred to the Senate Finance, Ways & Means Committee meeting on February 24. It is imperative that pro-choice, pro-privacy folks call legislators and tell them to vote against SJR127.

The relevant text of this bill (http://www.legislature.state.tn.us/bills/currentga/BILL/SJR0127.pdf):

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE SENATE OF THE ONE HUNDRED THIRD GENERAL
ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF TENNESSEE, THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
CONCURRING, That a majority of all the members of each house concurring, as shown by the
yeas and nays entered on their journals, that it is proposed that Article I, of the Constitution of
Tennessee be amended by adding the following language as a new, appropriately designated
section:

Nothing in this Constitution secures or protects a right to abortion or the funding
thereof.
