TNGA Rep. Matthew Hill & HB3808 (2012): Sermon On The Mons
TNGA Rep. Matthew Hill (R-7, Jonesborough), legislative sponsor of the Tennessee Life Defense Act of 2012, or HB3808, was defending his bill that would require all doctors who perform abortions to obtain admitting privileges at area hospitals before the Tennessee House Health and Human Service Committee and also originally requiring the state to publish records that would identify doctors performing abortions in Tennessee and compile a very broad demographic database about the women undergoing abortions in Tennessee.
Critics of Hill's HB3808 legislation cited the bill was a merely a legislative attempt to providing anti-legal abortion rights opponents with the information to identify, assault, and terrorize doctors and women seeking abortion services.

1. "Safety", Rep. Hill?
"Safety", Rep. Hill?:
Abortion Surveillance --- United States, 2007
"...Deaths of women associated with complications from abortions for 2007 are being investigated under CDC's Pregnancy Mortality Surveillance System. In 2006, the most recent year for which data were available, six women were reported to have died <across the entire United States and U.S. territories> as a result of complications from known legal induced abortions. No reported deaths were associated with known illegal induced abortions."
SAFETY OF ABORTION
• The risk of abortion complications is minimal: Fewer than 0.3% of abortion patients experience a complication that requires hospitalization.
