TN Legislators Approve Pro-Life Measure

This week the Tennessee Senate and the Tennessee House approved a measure that would make it a crime for a physician to perform an abortion after viability except in limited cases involving the life or physical health of the mother.

While the attorney general said that the original bill was suspect in certain regards, legislators amended the bill in an effort to address most of those concerns. But legislators noted that other states have these laws and they have not been challenged.

In response to calls for a veto by Planned Parenthood, Gov. Haslam has said he will review the bill with the administration’s attorney and the attorney general before deciding what to do.

Campus Sidewalk Pro-Life Messages Scrubbed

School officials at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania were asked to scrub chalked pro-life messages from the campus sidewalks on Monday. The messages, written by members of Students for Life, were part of National Pro-Life Chalk Day. The school’s posting and chalking guidelines say that chalked messages must conform with the school’s nondiscrimination campaign, yet, as an attorney for Alliance Defending Freedom explained in a letter to the school, the right to free speech is protected under the Constitution and “guidelines” cannot be used to erase political messages with which the school disagrees.

Pregnancy Care Centers in Hawaii Fight Abortion Referral Mandate

Through a House and Senate bill, state lawmakers in Hawaii are trying to force pregnancy care centers to tell pregnant women where they can go to abort their babies. Care centers must share a pro-abortion statement on posted signs in the waiting area or deliver the statement to clients. If care centers don’t, they could be fined $500 the first time and $1,000 for each subsequent offense and could get sued by women who report a violation.

Pro-Life Groups to Protest at Planned Parenthood Clinics This Saturday

This Saturday, as part of the #ProtestPP movement, a coalition of pro-life groups will demonstrate outside more than 200 Planned Parenthood clinics in 44 states and Washington, D.C., hoping to influence the debate in Congress over defunding the abortion giant. “The federal government has been subsidizing Planned Parenthood to the tune of more than $430 million annually,” said Eric Scheidler, national organizer of the #ProtestPP campaign.
