Tennesseeans May Vote To Outlaw All Abortion, Even For Rape, Incest Or To Save The Mother's Life

I don't know why this hasn't crossed my desk earlier. Here's Sahil Kapur at TPM:
The ballot initiative "Amendment 1" is the culmination of more than a decade of plotting by anti-abortion advocates, who are finally ready to strike. It says:

"Nothing in this Constitution secures or protects a right to abortion or requires the funding of an abortion. The people retain the right through their elected state representatives and state senators to enact, amend, or repeal statutes regarding abortion, including, but not limited to, circumstances of pregnancy resulting from rape or incest or when necessary to save the life of the mother."

Do you get it now? THIS ISN'T ABOUT RELIGION, AND THIS ISN'T ABOUT THE FETUS: THESE PEOPLE HATE WOMEN. THEY WANT TO CONTROL WOMEN'S MOST PERSONAL DECISIONS. If you live in Tennessee, get thee to the polls. If not, don't be surprised to see such a measure on your own ballot, not this election, but not very long from now either.


  1. Women of Tennessee, Lock your ankles, and don't ever spread your legs for a man again.... or until they grow some brains....

    1. Yeah, Mr. Z, that's my view of it as well. Lysistrata until improvement is evident...
