BREAKING: Tennessee just passed a ban on abortion. We're suing with the Center for Reproductive Rights and Planned Parenthood.— ACLU (@ACLU) June 19, 2020
Abortion is a right. If states didn't learn their lesson last year when we blocked seven bans, we will remind them again in court.
ICYMI: TN decided to pass a heartbeat bill in the middle of the night, behind closed doors, removing any members of the public. While also voting down bonuses for teachers and declining to discuss any COVID aid.

Tennessee lawmakers decided that instead of defunding the police or trying to help folks suffering from #COVID19 that they would ban abortion IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT POWER PLAY. https://t.co/G2yK55ane9— Lizz "Human Capital Stock" Winstead (@lizzwinstead) June 20, 2020
In the "early hours of the morning, police officers kept the public out of the Capitol building and arrested some protestors" while this group of Republican Tennessee State Senators hastily pushed through a “heartbeat bill” attempting to ban abortion after 6 weeks of pregnancy. pic.twitter.com/DHXIQAFGvz— Padma Lakshmi (@PadmaLakshmi) June 20, 2020
The state of Tennessee is trying to take away women‘s rights in the middle of the night while we sleep. There are no exceptions for rape or incest- and the bill also denies underage girls who are in the custody of Dept of Child Services who’ve been raped the option of an abortion https://t.co/kQfPGYLTGu— Margo Price (@MissMargoPrice) June 19, 2020
