Tenn. Senators Bill Hagerty and Marsha Blackburn

(Mike Osborne) — Tennessee U.S. Senators Marsha Blackburn and Bill Hagerty stood with fellow Republicans Wednesday to defeat legislation intended to legalize abortion nationwide.

The Democratic bill was introduced after word leaked out of the Supreme Court recently that justices appear ready to overturn the 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision legalizing the procedure.

Senator Blackburn commented on her vote saying Democrats are “on a mission to undermine the legitimacy of the Supreme Court and prop up their abortion-on-demand agenda.”

Tennessee’s state Democratic Party called Congress’ failure to write abortion access into law, “a disgrace.”
