Pro-Life Legislators Need to Stop Fighting

Tennessee’s pro-life legislators are fighting over which of two pro-life bills to pass. One, known as the “trigger bill,” would limit abortion except in cases involving the life of the mother, but only if Roe v. Wade is reversed. The other, the fetal heartbeat bill, prohibits abortions once a heartbeat is detected.

Some legislators believe the trigger bill is too passive. Others believe the heartbeat bill is too aggressive and the state will waste money trying to defend it.

But what is wrong with Tennessee spending a million dollars out of a $38.5 billion budget in an effort to bring about Roe v. Wade’s demise?

Since defeating Roe is an uphill climb, passing the trigger bill as a backup hurts nothing.

We think legislators should put aside this either-or perspective and pass both bills.

Preventing Discrimination Against Chicken Sandwiches

Last week the City of San Antonio refused to let Chick-fil-A lease space at its airport because of its disdain for the charitable causes Chick-fil-A supports. While that is unconstitutional viewpoint discrimination, Chick-fil-A will most likely turn the other cheek and not sue.

But, on the bright side, last week Tennessee Representative Jason Zachary led his state House colleagues in passing a bill that would prevent cities from discriminating against a business because it had not voluntarily made sexual orientation or gender identity a protected status under its personnel policies. The bill also prevents cities from discriminating against businesses that do not include abortion coverage under their group health insurance plan.

While all acts of prejudice against Christian-owned businesses can’t be stopped, this is a good start. The Senate will begin to consider the bill next week.

Government Transparency and the Attorney General

Senate Joint Resolution 1, a proposed amendment to Tennessee’s Constitution regarding the state’s attorney general, has received little public attention, probably because so few Tennesseans realize how influential that office is. For example, state judges give his legal arguments great weight, legislators use his opinions to kill proposed legislation, and defense of our state’s sovereignty against the federal government often depends on him.

But that lack of realization exists for a reason. Under Tennessee’s Constitution, the unelected justices on Tennessee’s Supreme Court appoint the attorney general. And their votes are even cast in private.

Under the proposed amendment, justices would only nominate the attorney general, and they would have to vote publicly. Then, a majority of the legislature would have to confirm the nomination.

You can learn more about the resolution on our website’s bill tracking page.
