Tenn. Senate Backs Anti-Abortion Step

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060310/ap_on_re_us/abortio... ;_ylt=AhB4BI.NcvulQVh8KvMUj6is0NUE;_ylu=X3oDMTA3OXIzMDMzBHNlYwM3MDM-


The state Senate on Thursday passed a proposal to amend the Tennessee Constitution so that it doesn't guarantee a woman's right to an abortion.

The 24-9 vote was the first step of many toward officially amending the state constitution. The measure would go before voters if the General Assembly approves it twice over the next two years.

The state Supreme Court has ruled that the Tennessee Constitution grants women a greater right to abortion than the U.S. Constitution.

Sen. David Fowler, a Republican sponsor of the bill, proposed a similar resolution last year that cleared the Senate but stalled in a House committee.

"I regret this will cast me as being hardhearted, unsympathetic and unkind but that's not who I am," Fowler said.

well Sen. Fowler, tell us, just who in the hell are you?

3. The constitution of the State of Tennessee has been good enough
for 136 years and did not require a change to outlaw abortion until now. But of course these idiots know more than anyone else during the last 136 years.

Our state's bird is the mockingbird so even if they outlaw abortions, girls will continue to get them not matter how many laws and amendments are passed, just like prohibition.

I think I'll move to the State of Franklin.
