Anti-Abortion Bills Advancing in House

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Proposals that seek to re-enact abortion laws that were struck down by a state Supreme Court decision are advancing in the House.

The two bills passed the House Health Subcommittee on voice votes Tuesday.

One measure is sponsored by Republican Rep. Matthew Hill of Jonesborough and would require a 48-hour waiting period before an abortion.

The other is sponsored by Republican Rep. Susan Lynn of Mt. Juliet and would require facilities or physician offices where more than 50 abortions are performed in a year to be licensed as ambulatory surgical treatment centers.

In its ruling in 2000, the state Supreme Court threw out mandatory 48-hour waiting periods for abortions, along with requirements that clinics provide detailed information about the procedure and that all but first-term abortions be performed in hospitals.
