Abortion rights are under attack in Tennessee!

Senate Bill 1971 has passed through the Senate and is on its way for a House hearing. This is a dangerous bill threatening legal penalties for providing basic healthcare to those in need. Please contact your representative today and urge them to oppose this bill!

SB 1971 would make any adult who “recruits, harbors, or transports a pregnant unemancipated minor” to obtain an abortion able to be charged with a misdemeanor. The sponsor of the bill has spouted theocratic talking points, saying that it’s intended to protect parents’ “God-given rights” to protect their minors from obtaining an abortion when asked how the bill would affect incest victims. This sort of Christian nationalist viewpoint shows little empathy for those in need of an abortion, instead favoring punishment for failing to obey a draconian worldview’s view of morality. Don’t let Tennessee children suffer!

This bill is moving through the Legislature, so please don’t wait to take action! We’ve provided customizable talking points through the “Take Action” button to reach out to your representatives both via email and phone. For best results, please be succinct and polite.
