TN AG Questions Consitutionality of Abortion Ban Bill

“NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee’s attorney general has questioned the constitutionality of current legislative proposals that would ban most abortions after 20 weeks.

“The opinion from Attorney General Herbert H. Slatery III, the top law enforcement official in a conservative Republican state, is the second this year to raise concerns over whether an abortion ban bill is constitutional. Last month, Slatery wrote that a push to outlaw most abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detectable, as early as six weeks, may not be able to withstand a court challenge.”
