Next Steps on the Tennessee Heartbeat Bill

Thanks to the hundreds who sent emails and tweets to the nine members of the Tennessee Senate Judiciary Committee urging them to support the rewritten heartbeat bill, SB 1236, during the August 12-13 Summer Study.

Your participation—by contacting the committee members, sitting in the hearing room at the Capitol, or speaking for life on our social media channels—has greatly encouraged us.

There are two things you can do now before the bill comes back up in January to help protect the lives of the unborn in Tennessee.

First, visit the Heartbeat Bill Summer Study Hearing page on our website for resources that you can watch, read, and then share. These include the video of FACT President David Fowler and FACT CEO Gary Humble discussing the Ninth Amendment as it relates to the heartbeat bill and David’s testimony at the hearing as well as that of other proponents of the bill as amended.

Second, pray that the legislature will make the decision that would save the lives of the unborn and help begin the process of restoring the rule of law in our country. We believe many of the pro-life senators in the Senate Judiciary Committee are beginning to listen to the new Ninth Amendment arguments being made in support of the bill.
