Fear not! The 1800’s weren’t all that bad!

1800saNashville – State Rep. Steve Womick has filed the first abortion-related bill on Thursday, November 13th to take advantage of the passing of Amendment 1. Under the new bill – The woman will be forced to have an ultrasound one to three days before a procedure. She will also be forced to listen to the heartbeat.

Womick says his concern is to “fully inform the mother of what she is doing”. He says his bill will protect the “emotional and mental health of women across the state of Tennessee”. So it takes a Republican man to tell Tennessee women what they are doing? The GOP war on women continues and more bills restricting women’s rights will continue when the Tennessee legislation convenes in January.

It is interesting to note that in 2000, the Tennessee Supreme Court ruled that abortion was protected in the Tennessee Constitution as part of a woman’s fundamental right to privacy. Welcome to the new Dark Ages in Tennessee.
