Pro-choicers for choice when the only choice is abortion

The Tennessee House has overwhelming approved HB 2568, a measure that would require any facility that commits more than 50 abortions during the previous calendar year to inform a woman taking the abortion pill regimen that the procedure can possibly be reversed after taking the first of the two pills, if the woman acts quickly enough.

"If they're pressured in taking the first pill while they're at the abortion clinic, and then they go home with the instructions to take the second one later, they will know in their mind that they can pursue a different path and protect the life of their child instead of taking it," explains Representative Bill Dunn (R), who represents part of Knoxville.

Abortion supporters are very much opposed to the bill.

"It's very interesting that the pro-abortions always say it's a woman's choice, but yet they in this case don't want to the woman to know that she does have a choice," Dunn notes. "I think it just displays the hypocrisy of that side."

Dunn says the Senate is currently trying to limit bill considerations to those that deal with the COVID-19 pandemic and the state budget. But if HB 2568 does make it to the Senate floor for a vote, he is convinced it will pass.
