TN Attorney General Unable to Derail Pro-Life Law

This week the Judiciary Committee in the Tennessee Senate moved to the Senate floor a bill that would ban post-viability abortions except where necessary to save the life or physical health of the mother. Though multiple laws exactly like this one now exist and none have been ruled unconstitutional, Tennessee’s attorney general issued an opinion saying the bill was “constitutionally suspect” because it, like the other laws, did not include an exception for a mother’s “emotional health.” Thankfully, the committee was provided testimony from someone who is truly an expert relative to constitutional law and abortion, and the majority voted in favor of the bill despite the attorney general’s opinion.

Artificial Wombs Could Complicate the Legality of Abortion

With the invention of an artificial womb that successfully brought several premature sheep to viability (the ability to survive outside the womb) recently, the implications for human babies within the next five years has many abortion activists trembling.

Unborn human babies could conceivably reach viability at even earlier ages with the help of these artificial wombs, and that could “complicate —and even jeopardize—the right to abortion in an America in which that right is predicated on whether a fetus is ‘viable,’” says reporter Kristen V. Brown.

As Harvard bioethicist I. Glenn Cohen stated, “This has the potential to really disrupt things, first by asking the question of whether a fetus could be considered ‘viable’ at the time of abortion if you could place it in an artificial womb.”

This new technology could severely limit the “right to abortion” and give new meaning to a woman’s right to control her own body.

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.
