It Appears Tennessee’s Gov. Lee Gaining Friends and Making Enemies – Signing Legislation to Ban Abortion As Early as Six Weeks
It Appears Tennessee’s Gov. Lee Gaining Friends and Making Enemies – Signing Legislation to Ban Abortion As Early as Six Weeks by Rory for The Daily Coin
If the words below were describing a baby elephant, baby seal, baby dog or cat, well, leftist would be coming out of the woodwork to defend it’s right to life. But since it’s a baby human, well, that’s a different story altogether.
Earlier today we reported, on Gospel News Network, how Texas, Louisiana and possibly Mississippi, were cutting off Medicaid payments to the Murder Factory called Planned Parenthood. This is now before a Federal appeals court.
In a court of law, a Federal Appeals court in Louisiana and Texas has decided that tax payer funding of child genocide is no longer Constitutional. We couldn’t agree more. If mothers and fathers make the decision to kill their unborn child it should not be funded by tax payers. Why not seek alternatives, like adoption? Why not discuss with a church how to avoid having an abortion? Why not discuss with just about anyone other the murder factory called Planned Parenthood?
The good news is, with this decision being in the 5th Circuit it impacts Mississippi and we now have a precedent set, at the Federal level, which means this could possibly go to the Supreme Court. If this makes it to the Supreme Court, we could see the end of Planned Parenthood. What a totally Orwellian name – “Planned Parenthood” WOW!! I guess Murder, Inc. was a little too direct and on point.

Now we learn, this past Friday, November 20, Tennessee’s Governor Lee signed legislation banning abortions for “reason”. In Tennessee you can no longer abort a child with Down syndrome or based on their race or gender. Small victory, but we’ll take it. We pray that it supports the effort in the 5th Circuit Court and the decision regarding our neighbor states and the children this will impact from Tennessee to Texas.
As the AP reported…
A federal appeals court ruled Friday that Tennessee can begin outlawing abortions because of a prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome, as well as prohibit the procedure if it’s based on the race or gender of the fetus.
Tennessee Republican Gov. Bill Lee enacted the so-called “reason bans” earlier this year as part of a sweeping anti-abortion measure. The law gained national attention because it banned abortion as early as six weeks — making it one of the strictest in the country — but it included several other anti-abortion components.
The law was immediately blocked by a lower federal court just hours after Lee signed it into law.
However, the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision will allow the state to enforce the reason bans while abortion rights groups continue their court battle against that law.
The plaintiffs, which include Tennessee abortion providers being represented by reproductive rights groups, had argued the ban was improperly vague, but the court disagreed.
Currently, more than a dozen states have similar reason bans in place.
“These bans are just another way anti-abortion politicians are attempting to limit the constitutional right to abortion care and to create stigma,” said Nancy Northup, president and CEO of the Center for Reproductive Rights, in a statement. “Decisions about whether and when to continue or to end a pregnancy are best made by the individual and their family.”
