District Judge Orders Stay on Tennessee’s Pro-Life Amendment 1

U.S. District Judge Kevin Sharp ordered a halt to a vote recount on an amendment that would remove the right to an abortion from the state’s constitution.

Judge Sharp had ordered the recount of the vote on Amendment 1 but granted the state’s motion to suspend the recount pending its appeal to the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals. The Court of Appeals will hear oral arguments on the appeal on August 2.

Eight voters, including the board chair of Planned Parenthood of Middle and East Tennessee, have challenged the outcome of the 2014 vote. Please be praying that the 6th Circuit will uphold this needed amendment, which allows the Legislature to enact protections for women and the unborn.

Oral Arguments Set on Tennessee’s Pro-Life Amendment 1 Challenge

On August 2 in Cincinnati, judges at the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals will hear oral arguments in the lawsuit brought by Planned Parenthood abortion activists challenging the outcome of the 2014 election, particularly voters approving of pro-life Amendment 1.

It has been more than two years since Tennesseans approved pro-life Amendment 1 by a vote of 53 percent to 47 percent.

Please pray for a good outcome to this court case, George et al v. Haslam et al. As Tennessee Right to Life notes, without Amendment 1, the lives of countless unborn children could be lost and state laws protecting women and unborn children will be nullified.

Planned Parenthood Report Proves Abortion Still Number-One Service

Planned Parenthood’s annual report, typically slated for release in December or January of each year, was finally released this week.

The 2015-2016 report shows that while the number of abortions increased, the number of breast exams, prenatal services, contraception services, cancer screenings, and prevention services decreased.

The report verifies what we already know—that Planned Parenthood’s main business is providing abortions and does not offer sufficient health services to women to be creditably viewed as a comprehensive health care provider. The report gives credence to the fact that the abortion giant does not need government funding for the sake of making women’s health services available.

Center for Medical Progress Launches Latest Video, Faces Possible Contempt

David Daleiden of Center for Medical Progress and his attorneys could be found in contempt of court as a result of the attorneys releasing yet another undercover video exposing Planned Parenthood’s gruesome profiteering of fetal tissue in violation of a gag order.

His attorneys also released the names of the people who accused David Daleiden and coworker Sandra Merritt in the felony charges, accusers who had previously been referred to only as “Does.”

The latest Center for Medical Progress video was pulled from YouTube recently for containing “inappropriate content,” but you can still watch it on the LifeSiteNews website here. Daleiden and his attorneys will appear in court June 14.

States Can Withhold Funds to Planned Parenthood

This week President Trump signed a law that would overturn a rule created by former President Obama that barred states from withholding money distributed under a Title X program that funded Planned Parenthood and other clinics that provide abortion. The law will have no impact on Tennessee because state lawmakers voted in 2011 to divert those funds to the state Department of Health anyway.
