What is Amendment One?

Posted in Announcements by Jim on October 30, 2014

Amendment One says this:

Shall Article I, of the Constitution of Tennessee be amended by adding the following language as a new, appropriately designated section:

Nothing in this Constitution secures or protects a right to abortion or requires the funding of an abortion. The people retain the right through their elected state representatives and state senators to enact, amend, or repeal statutes regarding abortion, including, but not limited to, circumstances of pregnancy resulting from rape or incest or when necessary to save the life of the mother.

You’ve Probably Heard about ‘Proposition One’

Posted in Announcements by Jim on October 15, 2014

And the campaign by many churches to support a ‘yes’ vote on the measure.  Lonnie Wilkey, the editor of the Baptist and Reflector, writes-

I received an interesting news release this week from the Yes on 1 organization in Tennessee. It certainly provides some food for thought.

For those who regularly read my blog and columns in the Baptist and Reflector, it is no secret that I wholeheartedly endorse the support of Yes on 1 which is an effort to educate Tennesseans about the need to vote for Amendment 1 which will appear on the state ballot on election day, Nov. 4. Amendment 1, if passed, can restore some common sense restrictions on abortion that are already in place in states surrounding Tennessee.

According to the news release, the group which opposes Yes on 1 is being funded primarily by eight abortion facilities in Tennessee and even out of state that have given the “No on 1″ organization $1.4 million of the $1.5 million they have received. According to their campaign disclosure, only 100 individuals have given more than $100 each.

If they are spending that kind of money it’s a pretty sure thing that they want to defeat the measure and continue to annihilate generations of unborn children.
