Federal Court Rules Delivers a Final Ruling
There were “trigger laws” in place in many states prior to the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v Wade. Even though there was a lot of opposition, some of them went into effect as soon as they were passed. One of these laws prohibited abortions in the state of Tennessee at any point during the first six weeks of pregnancy. It is scheduled to take effect thirty days after the momentous decision that was handed down by the Supreme Court.

On the other hand, it was held up in court, and there was some uncertainty regarding whether or not the law would be passed until today. The Supreme Court’s decision to return the issue of abortion to the jurisdiction of the states has resulted in a flurry of new legislation being proposed in both Republican- and Democrat-controlled states across the country. These new laws are now taking center stage everywhere in the country.
The “constitutional right” to abortion is being aggressively defended in a number of pro-choice states, while pro-life states are essentially attempting to outlaw most forms of abortion that aren’t performed in response to a medical emergency. Because Tennessee is such a conservative state and because it has been a proud member of the pro-life group for a very long time, it should not come as a surprise to see them enforce this ban. And now, a federal court has decided that they are allowed to proceed with their plans.
Bill Lee, the Republican governor of Tennessee, expressed his satisfaction with the decision and elaborated on Tennessee’s next steps in the wake of the landmark ruling handed down by the Supreme Court. It is essential to keep in mind that the trigger law in Tennessee is just the tip of the iceberg for people who support the right to life. The legislation will also “criminalize performing or attempting to perform an abortion,” and the only time it will be legalized is when the mother’s life is in very serious danger.
We’ve seen legislation very similar to this passed in other states, and a lot of Republican and Conservative voters are in favor of this move. In the state of Tennessee, it is against the law to terminate a pregnancy on the basis of the fetus’s gender, race, or the presence of Down syndrome.
Planned Parenthood, as was to be expected, was not a big fan of the decision by the federal court to let Tennessee move forward with this law.

Ashley Coffield, president, and chief executive officer of Planned Parenthood of Tennessee and North Mississippi, called it “unconscionable” that residents of Tennessee would be denied access to abortion services. However, the majority of people who identify with the right will disagree with you.
Since the ruling, a number of states, including Tennessee, have taken strident stances against abortion, and Tennessee is just one of them.
As an illustration, Governor Kristi Noem of South Dakota stated that “abortions have stopped” in her state at this time. This discussion will, irrespective of the outcome, remain the most popular topic for many years to come.
