Tennessee appears poised to increase restrictions on access to abortion care, as state lawmakers passed bills to mandate a 48-hour waiting period and increase regulation of clinics that provide abortion services.
A Tennessee house committee passed two bills that would restrict access to abortion care in the state. Among the bills considered priories by anti-choice policymakers are those designed to reinstate laws struck down by the state supreme court ruling in 2000.
Tennessee lawmakers have introduced multiple anti-choice bills in the wake of a constitutional amendment approved by voters that permits state lawmakers to pass laws regulating abortion.
