A Tennessee Federation of Republican Women Resolution to Support
WHEREAS, on September 15, 2000, history was changed for Tennesseans by the Tennessee Supreme Court’s 4-1 decision in Planned Parenthood of Middle Tennessee v. Sundquist claiming there is an inherent right to abortion in the Tennessee Constitution; and,
WHEREAS, as a result of the Tennessee Supreme Court’s ruling, it is impossible for Tennessee voters and elected officials to enact common sense protections that would protect the unborn children or abortion –vulnerable girls and women; and,
WHEREAS, Tennessee is one of the leading providers of abortion to women living outside its borders, according to the latest information from the United States Center for Disease Control; and,
WHEREAS, Republicans led the fight to pass SJR 127 in the 106th Tennessee General Assembly in 2009 and the 107th Tennessee General Assembly in 2011 to put Amendment 1 on the ballot; and,
WHEREAS, Amendment 1 will be on the general election ballot for November 4th, 2014; and,
WHEREAS, Amendment 1, if approved by the voters of Tennessee, would make the Constitution of the State of Tennessee neutral on the issue of abortion and return authority to the people of Tennessee through their elected representatives, subject to the requirements of the United States Constitution; and,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Tennessee Federation of Republican Women urges all Members and Associates of our clubs across the state of Tennessee to vigorously support the adoption of Amendment 1.
