Dear [Senator/Representative LAST NAME],
Thank you for your service. My name is [YOUR NAME] and I reside in [YOUR CITY]. I’m reaching out as a constituent. This session, you have an opportunity to save lives in Tennessee by voting to change Tennessee’s abortion ban and create meaningful exceptions to protect the life and health of the mother and for fatal fetal anomalies. A majority of Tennesseans, across all party lines, support these exceptions. Current law in Tennessee makes all abortions, even those required to save the life of a mother, a class C felony. This puts the lives of pregnant women and children in danger. It also puts doctors at risk of going to jail if they act in an emergency to save a patient’s life. I am writing to you today to ask you to put the lives of Tennesseans and your constituents first by co-sponsoring anticipated legislation to create exceptions to protect the life and health of the mother and for fatal fetal anomalies.
