Passage of Amendment 1 Gives Voters Back Their Voice on Abortion Policy

FRANKLIN, Tenn. (November 4, 2014) – David Fowler, President of The Family Action Council of Tennessee (FACT), issued a statement in response to the passage of Amendment 1:

Today is a great victory for the people of Tennessee, who have reclaimed from our state Supreme Court their right to have a voice on abortion policy in our state. It is a victory for a government of and by and for the people, and a victory for the protection of women and their unborn.

We are proud of the people of Tennessee who rejected the deceptive media messages against Amendment 1 paid for by millions of dollars from abortion providers both inside and outside of our state. The passage of Amendment 1 shows that thousands of citizens coming together on something about which they are passionate can accomplish something that money alone can’t buy.

The Family Action Council of Tennessee, which Fowler heads, was formed in 2006 by a group of citizens concerned about the growing negative impact of public policies on the family. FACT’s mission is to equip Tennesseans and their elected officials to effectively promote and defend a culture that values the traditional family, for the sake of the common good.
