Ramsey Criticizes Bredesen for Not Signing Prohibition on Tax-Funded Abortions

Statement from Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey, R-Blountville, May 5, 2010:

“I am extremely disappointed that Governor Bredesen declined to sign Senate Bill 2686, which prohibits taxpayer funded abortion in the federally mandated health care exchanges created by Congress and President Obama. Tennessee was the first state in the nation to pass this legislation and now other states are following suit because Washington should not be dictating this policy to Tennessee. Tax dollars should never be used for abortion and I am very pleased this law will take effect immediately even though the Governor chose not to sign it.”
