Why isn’t it worded in more understandable terms?

A:

The wording of this Amendment was carefully drafted by the nation’s top pro-life constitutional attorneys and organizations so that it would be compatible with what we are trying to accomplish. Each word was carefully placed so that it would enable legislation that will save the lives of unborn children and protect abortion-vulnerable mothers. Without passage of Amendment 1, Tennessee’s Constitution would have continued to be interpreted as protecting a so-called ‘state right to abortion’ and denying the opportunity to enforce common-sense pro-life protections such as informed consent for women considering abortion and regulation of the state’s abortion facilities.
