Planned Parenthood of Tennessee is afraid… and they should be

I received an “urgent appeal” from Planned Parenthood today that said they needed me to contact the 2006 Public Health Family Assistance Sub-Comm concerning SJR-127 which just passed the Senate. So I did.
Here is what I sent to the committee:

As a Tennessean, I’m over joyed about SJR127, the proposed amendment to our Constitution that would remove the so called right to abortion in Tennessee. Our state Constitution exists to help protect the people’s rights, including the rights of our unborn children!
SJR127 has passed in the Senate, and I understand it will be up before the Public Health and Family Assistance subcommittee in the next few weeks. Please vote for this life affirming, morally sound bill.
While the Senators who voted for SJR127 are doing their duty to protect the lives of Tennessee’s unborn children, very little is being done criminalize those who would seek to perpetrate this crime on those children.
SJR127 is not the complete solution, but it is a step in the right direction Please stand up for the rights of women in this great state, and vote FOR SJR-127.
Thank you for your courage and leadership.

The best thing about this is that Planned parenthood provided a link to allow everyone to contact the commitee members with a personal letter. Now you can be sure the message above is not exactely the “default” message they had prepared, but I tried to keep it as close as possible. Read their default letter and send your own message here. (Don’t forget to personalize your subject line.)  
You can also contact the General Assembly here. (Thanks RTL)

Be sure to thank your representative for standing for the unborn, unless they deserve a rebuke for not standing for them.
