Amendment 1 Misinformation (October 22, 2014)

So, to rile up a jaded public that distrusts government, a law professor says that Amendment 1 would “force governmental interference into private medical decisions.” But what that lawyer, chair of Planned Parenthood’s board in Middle TN, didn’t say is the language of the Amendment actually says the “people retain the right” to decide what policies we should have on abortion.
