Tennessee Ranks 3rd in the Percentage of Out-of-State Abortions



Federal Judge Kevin Sharp Stays Amendment 1 Vote Recount Order

Nashville, June 7, 2016---Citing the estimated $1 million dollar cost of conducting a recount of ballots on Amendment 1, Federal District Judge Kevin Sharp has agreed to put the recount on hold pending outcome of the state's appeal of Sharp's earlier ruling to the 6th circuit court of appeals in Cincinnati.

This represents a significant win for the state and for citizens who shouldn't have to fund an unnecessary recount based solely on Planned Parenthood's opposition to the outcome of the 2014 amendment vote.

Both sides now wait for the appeals process to be scheduled by the U.S. 6th Circuit.
