(Nashville Post) Bills banning fetal tissue sales and another requiring ultrasounds were unexpectedly pulled by their sponsors, but Tennessee Right To Life isn’t concerned:
No explanations were given for taking the ultrasound bill, sponsored by Rep. Rick Womick, R-Rockvale, and the fetal tissue bill, sponsored by Rep. Micah Van Huss, R-Gray, off notice.
Brian Harris, president of Tennessee Right to Life, said the organization wasn’t backing either one and had swung its support to Republican Gov. Bill Haslam’s legislation to regulate abortion clinics, as well as tissue donations.
The pro-life group has said it supports legislation that isn’t likely to spur a federal lawsuit.
