Four Decades Later, Roe vs. Wade Still Roils Tenn. Politics

Look what ACLU is complaining about....don't they want the woman to get care???? Look what happened to Planned Parenthood client in Chicago...they left her bleeding for 5 hours before sending her to the ER where she later died.

Four Decades Later, Roe vs. Wade Still Roils Tenn. Politics
By Mike Osborne

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT) -- Tuesday marks the 40th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark Roe vs. Wade decision legalizing abortion. Four decades later the ruling continues to fuel controversy here in Tennessee.

Hedy Weinberg of the state chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union contends the Tennessee Legislature is slowly chipping away at the reproductive rights of women.

“Over the last 12 years, Tennessee legislators have attempted to enact a web of restrictions that force government deeper and deeper into the personal and very private decisions about reproductive healthcare that women should be able to make on their own.”

Weinberg says the most recent of those restrictions was enacted last year when a measure was passed requiring doctors providing abortions in Tennessee to have admitting privileges at a local hospital.

Susan Allen speaks for the pro-life group Tennessee Right to Life. She sees the admitting privileges requirement as just common sense.
“If there were complications with the abortion, which does happen, that the doctor – the attending doctor – that was doing the abortion could take the woman to the hospital to give her care.”

Allen says a delegation from Tennessee will be traveling to Washington D.C. this week to take part in the annual March for Life event on Friday.

Thank God that TN is moving in the right direction! May God see TN and the U.S. abortion free very, very soon I pray!

And for that woman from the ACLU she seems to be forgetting that it is people like her organization and the government that have made it more and more public by trying to use more of tax payers money to fund their reproductive services such as paying for their birth control and funding Planned Parenthood to the tune of over $542.4 million.

It's time to call them out on all their lies and the main stream media for hiding them!
