Will the ‘Heartbeat Bill’ Die in Court?

Last week Tennessee’s House of Representatives passed what is known as a fetal heartbeat bill and sent it to the state Senate for consideration. What is not known is that the bill looked nothing like the bills being proposed in other states.

The other states have recognized that fetal heartbeat legislation will be subjected to tough treatment in the federal courts, so they have put into their bills whereas clauses to justify and explain the approach they are taking and why the U.S. Supreme Court should consider their legislation differently from other failed attempts at fetal heartbeat legislation.

Inexplicably, Tennessee’s representatives decided no explanations and justifications were needed. Unfortunately, having ignored the collective wisdom of sister states as to what’s needed to challenge long-standing Supreme Court precedent, the heartbeat bill, if passed, is likely to die in court.

The FACT Report, featured on several conservative radio stations, is a weekly one-minute audio commentary about a political or cultural issue affecting Tennesseans.

Modern-Day Cannibals

Mainstream media seems intent on digging up non-criminal things our political leaders did 30 and sometimes 40 years ago and asking people if they are offended. Perhaps in hindsight or according to today’s mores, what they did was insensitive or insulting.

But do non-criminal actions decades ago make a person unfit for office today? Those who have never experienced the grace of God seem to think so, but for Christians, God calls us to a higher standard. If what people once did is not who they now are, we should thank God for the change in them, not blast them for their past. What current problem is that solving?

Scripture warns us, “If you bite and devour one another, beware lest you be consumed by one another.” Too many in media are nothing short of modern-day cannibals.

When Politics, Not Law, Guides the Attorney General

Last week, Tennessee’s Attorney General, Herbert Slatery, issued an opinion regarding a law passed eighteen years ago that allowed courts to enhance a criminal sentence if the victim had been targeted because of the person’s “gender.”

He opined that “gender” referred to a psychological and cultural construct distinct from one’s biological sex and thus referred to a transgendered person. But since sex is not referenced in the statute and gender, he says, is different from biological sex, that means Attorney General Slatery has construed the law in a way that prohibits enhancement of a sentence because, for example, the criminal targeted the woman strictly because she was a woman.

That couldn’t have been the Legislature’s intent eighteen years ago, but that’s what happens when today’s politics, not law, becomes the Attorney General’s guiding principle.
