Four abortion bills to be considered this week in the Tenn. General Assembly

Apr 5, 2021


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne)  --  Tennessee state lawmakers will this week consider four different anti-abortion bills introduced by majority Republicans.

One of those bills would require that fetal remains be buried or cremated following an abortion.

Another measure would essentially give a man veto power over a woman’s abortion simply by claiming paternity.

A third would make abortion illegal as soon a pregnancy can be detected using blood hormone tests. Performing an abortion past that point could cost a doctor between three and 15 years in jail.

Abortion related bills:

  1. HB1079:
  2. HB1181:
  3. HB1252:
  4. HB1539:
