Governor Bill Lee of Tennessee has stated he will support any bill that protects life inside the womb.
Life Site News reported, “GOP state Rep. James Van Huss introduced a bill in the General Assembly that would require abortionists to test for and document fetal heartbeats before abortion, and if one is found they would be barred from committing the abortion except in medical emergencies. Preborn babies’ hearts finish forming around seven or eight weeks into pregnancy.”
The proposed “heartbeat bill” follows suit after multiple other states including Iowa, South Carolina, Ohio, Florida, Kentucky, and Missouri filed for the same piece of legislation. The bill would make abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected, an illegal procedure to perform.
“I would support any bill that reduces the number of abortions in the state,” Gov. Lee stated as reported by The Associated Press.The Tennessee Attorney General Herbert Slatery stated back in 2017 that he would consider a heartbeat bill “constitutional suspect,” to which Gov. Lee states, “courts will have to decide for themselves” the legality of the bill. The bill is likely to pass, as the state House Speaker Glen Casada and Senate Speaker Randy McNally reported that they would support the life-saving bill as well.
House Speaker Casada, a strong supporter of the bill stated, “I think it’s a fight worth having in front of the Supreme Court. I really do.”
The standing abortion law in Tennessee already prohibit abortions beyond 20 weeks – making it one of the more pro-life states. The previous Governor Bill Haslam signed life-protecting bills that prohibited abortion factories from receiving healthcare subsidies and indicated that “the state’s constitution declares it contains no “right” to abortion,” as Life Site News reports.
In the wake of the most radical abortion bills being proposed, this proposed life-valuing bill is just the encouragement that we need.
EQUALITY: Tennessee Legislation Would Give Discretion to Fathers Regarding Abortions
This is what fairness looks like.
Two Tennessee state legislators have introduced legislation that would allow a father to file an injunction against the pregnant mother to stop him from ending the baby’s life.
State senator Mark Pody (R) filed SB0494 in the state senate while state representative Jerry Sexton (R) introduced HB1079 in the state house. The legislation would permit “a person to petition a court for an injunction to prohibit a woman who is pregnant with the person’s unborn child from obtaining an abortion.”
Additionally, the legislation gives the petitioner the ability “to execute a voluntary acknowledgement of paternity that is not subject to being rescinded or challenged.”
“If he can prove to the courts that he is the father, the biological father, then he has rights to what’s going on with his son or daughter,” Pody said, as reported by FOX 17 News.
FOX 17 News issued a poll to gauge the support of the measure and it is practically deadlocked, showing how equality is shamefully rejected by much of the masses:
POLL: A bill moving through the #tnleg would allow the father of an unborn child to petition the court (for an injunction) if the mother of the child is planning on getting an abortion. Do you support or oppose this legislation?

Leftist special interest groups are outraged at the notion, calling this push for true equality an attack on women’s rights.
“This unconstitutional legislation demonstrates the condescending mindset underlying this bill: that men should control women’s bodies,” ACLU of Tennessee Executive Director Hedy Weinberg said in a statement. “Women are not chattel and this bill needs to be stopped in its tracks.”
“This extreme and dangerous bill would even allow a rapist to stop his victim from ending a pregnancy,” Weinberg added.
Abortion proponents are inventing absurd hypotheticals in an attempt to deny basic equality for fathers. Planned Parenthood wants to protect its very lucrative fetal chop shop racket, after all.
“A pregnant person must have the ultimate control over their body and their pregnancy. The legislature needs to stop trying to distract the public from their leadership failures with increasingly stigmatizing abortion restrictions,” said Francie Hunt, who works as the executive director of Tennessee Advocates for Planned Parenthood.
“Nobody should have the power to make health care decisions for someone else — not a judge, a partner, and certainly not a rapist regardless of paternity,” Hunt added.
It turns out that feminists and social justice warriors don’t really want equality. They only want freedom from responsibility, which includes the “right” to murder a baby in the womb. This legislation in Tennessee evens the score and more states should consider similar measures secure to men’s rights.
