Abortion Facilities Continue To Fund ‘Vote No’ Campaign in Tennessee

yeson194% of Reported Campaign Funds Supplied by Abortion Promoters

Editor’s note. This analysis was provided by “Yes on 1.” The proposed Amendment 1 to the state constitution is intended to neutralize a 2000 pro-abortion ruling by the Tennessee Supreme Court.

As expected, pro-abortion opponents of Amendment 1 continue to draw nearly all their support and funding from the abortion industry itself.

Based on disclosures filed through October 25, the ‘Vote No’ campaign shows just 198 individual donors statewide contributing more than $100 each.  In contrast, 16 abortion facilities in Tennessee and across the country contributed a total $3.5 million dollars of $4.0 million reported raised.  Additionally, ACLU of Tennessee and New York contributed $200,000.

The Yes on 1 campaign has reported 1,016 Tennesseans contributing more than $100 for a total of $1,012,268.  The Vote No campaign reported 198 Tennesseans contributing more than $100 for a total of $179,796.

This report proves that Yes on 1 has a grassroots effort from Memphis to Mountain City.  And, at the end of the day, we trust the compassion and common sense of Tennesseans to see through the fear and false claims of the Vote No campaign.
