Dear [Senator/Representative LAST NAME],
You have an opportunity to save lives in Tennessee by voting to clarify Tennessee’s abortion ban and create meaningful exceptions to save the life or health of a mother and for fatal fetal anomalies.
[INSERT YOUR PERSONAL REASONS FOR EMAILING]
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 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 supporting legislation to create exceptions for the life and health of the mother.
No matter where someone lives, what they look like, or what they believe, we should all have the freedom to decide if, when, how, and with whom we start or grow a family. Our doctors should have the freedom to do their jobs and save lives without interference from politicians.
Will you support legislation to create an exception to protect the life and health of the mother?
I can be reached at the email below. I look forward to discussing this issue further.
