Tennessee Introduces Heartbeat Bill

Objectivity 3.1 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.6

Tennessee Republican lawmakers introduced a new abortion restriction law modeled after Texas’ Heartbeat Bill, which bans most abortions. Abortion activists have criticized Texas law, but the Supreme Court has allowed the legal measure to stand. The pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute predicted that at least 14 states could introduce legislation similar to the law in Texas.
