Date for oral arguments set on challenge to pro-life Amendment “YES on 1”

By Tennessee Right to Life

More than two years after Tennesseans approved pro-life Amendment 1 by a vote of 53% – 47%, oral arguments have been set in the lawsuit brought by Planned Parenthood abortion activists challenging the outcome of the 2014 election.

A panel of judges at the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals will hear the case on August 2 in Cincinnati.

YES on 1 and Tennessee Right to Life coordinated a “friend of the court” brief which includes the signatures of 8,850 Tennesseans who stand to be harmed if their votes are thrown out.

More importantly, the lives of countless unborn children could be lost if Amendment 1 is struck down and state laws protecting women, girls and unborn children are nullified. Your continued support is vital to upholding the will of Tennessee’s pro-life majority.

Together we are insuring that every voice and vote are defended in order to protect the lives of vulnerable unborn children and their mothers in Tennessee. Your financial support now will help to defray the ongoing costs of leading the fight for life in our communities, state and nation.
