On Monday, March 23, Governor Bill Lee issued Executive Order Number 18 regarding essential and non-essential medical services. In essence, the Order serves to define what services should remain available during the present health crisis. Common sense and a clear reading make plain that elective abortion procedures are non-essential.
Right now Tennessee Right to Life and other concerned citizens call upon our state government to place the health and safety of unborn children and abortion-vulnerable women above the profit motives of abortion facilities. Non-compliance will result in the deaths of unborn children and compromise the health and safety of women and families. First responders and health care workers are also placed in unnecessary danger.
Please contact Governor Bill Lee and urge him to specifically declare abortion as non-essential healthcare immediately.
