What is the current abortion law in Tennessee?

A:

After passage of Amendment 1 in November of 2014, Tennessee's General Assembly restored three common-sense protections that were previously struck down: informed consent, a 48-hour waiting period and the requirement that abortion facilities be licensed and inspected by the Tennessee Department of Health.

Tennessee has historically been a national leader in the passage of protective, pro-life legislation.  Please visit Tennessee Right to Life to see current state laws regarding abortion.
