SJR 127 Passes!

Voting yes - 76
Voting no - 22

SJR 127 to be voted on tonight in Tennessee House of Representatives

After being killed again and again by Democrat-controlled House subcommittees in previous legislative sessions, pro-life SJR 127 will make it to the House floor this evening for a vote. The Senate passed SJR 127 in March -- 5 Democrats joined all 19 Republicans for a 24-8 vote in favor of the resolution.

SJR 127 "adds new provision to Article I to provide that nothing in the Constitution of Tennessee secures or protects right to abortion or requires the funding of an abortion; states that the people retain the right through their elected state representatives and state senators to enact, amend, or repeal statutes regarding abortion..."

If you live in Tennessee and have not yet contacted your Representative to ask him to support SJR 127 without amendments, click here to find his contact information. If you don't live in Tennessee, please join us in praying that this piece of legislation will pass tonight.
