Abortion Facilities Continue To Fund 'Vote No' Campaign

90% of Reported Campaign Funds Supplied by Abortion Clinics

Nashville---As expected, pro-abortion opponents of Amendment 1 continue to draw nearly all their support and funding from the abortion industry itself. 

"An industry that refuses to police itself is pouring millions into deceptive television ads in order to confuse voters and continue operating without common-sense safeguards," said Lorene Steffes, spokeswoman for YES on 1. "The disclosures make clear that those who care most about defeating Amendment 1 are those who profit from performing abortions."

Release of the most recent 'Vote No' campaign disclosure shows just 100 individual donors statewide contributing more than $100 each.  In contrast, 8 abortion facilities in Tennessee and across the country contributed a total $1.4 million dollars of $1.5 million reported raised this quarter.  Individuals contributed less than $150,000 to the Vote No campaign.
