An open letter to State Legislatures (TN only)

Tennessee SB0494

90 so far! Let’s get to 100 signers!

I urge you to oppose SB0494 and/or HB1079. As introduced, this bill permits a man to petition a court for an injunction to prohibit a woman who is pregnant with the man’s unborn child from obtaining an abortion. The bill requires the man to execute a voluntary acknowledgement of paternity that is not subject to being rescinded or challenged and no DNA evidence is required. This bill amends TCA Title 24; Title 29; Title 36; Title 39 and Title 68, Chapter 3. This bill endangers the lives of women in Tennessee. There is no provision that prevents the application of this bill in relationships where abuse has been alleged or where sexual assault has occurred. There is no exception for an abortion to be obtained due to the pregnancy endangering the life of the mother. This bill serves to be another tool in an abuser’s toolbox. When did Tennessee’s legislature become Pro-Abuse? It is a dark time in our state indeed. Please send a clear message that you will protect the lives of women in Tennessee and oppose this bill.
