About us

Our mission is to provide our community with accurate information and educational resources regarding the life issues of abortion, infanticide and euthanasia, as well as promoting assistance to women and families facing unexpected pregnancies and those recovering from abortion.  We do this through education, legislation and grassroots activism.

Education:

  • Displays at public events that highlight the beauty of life in all ages and stages.
  • Life Lessons available for Kindergarten through 12th grade for use in Sunday School, youth group sessions and Vacation Bible School.
  • Mothers Day billboard campaign.
  • Presentations and resources available on all life issues for civic groups, churches, Sunday School classes and more.

 

Recent Pro-Life Legislation Passed:

  • Informed Consent for women and girls considering abortion (2015).  This legislation requires abortion facilities to provide accurate information about the development of the baby, alternatives and resources available to assist the mother, and possible physical and psychological risks of the abortion.
  • 48 Hour Waiting Period (2015). This legislation requires a 48 hour waiting period in order to reduce coerced abortions and to allow time to carefully consider the information and resources provided by informed consent provisions.
  • Regulation of Abortion Facilities (2015).  This legislation requires the inspection and licensure by the Tennessee Department of Health in order to hold abortion providers accountable.
  • Prevent the Trafficking of Human Remains (2016).  This legislation strengthens reporting requirements by abortion facility operators, increase inspections of these facilities and ensure that the remains of unborn children cannot be bought or sold following an abortion in Tennessee.  The bill also requires informed consent by a woman prior to an abortion specific to the disposition / disposal of her unborn child's body.
