David Fowler, president of The Family Action Council of Tennessee, will be speaking about why you should vote “yes” on Amendment 1, which is up for vote on the Nov. 4 general election ballot, at the Moore County Building in Lynchburg on Tuesday, Aug. 26, from 7-8 p.m.

Fowler said the reason he is so passionate about informing the public should know about Amendment 1 is because in 2000, the Tennessee State Supreme Court found a “right to abortion” in the state constitution. Since then, the percentage of abortions performed in Tennessee on out-of-state women has become the third highest in the nation.

Voting “yes” on Amendment 1 this November will allow Tennessee to enact policies that protect women and children, such as abortion-specific informed consent to provide accurate information about women’s health and fetal development, a 24-hour waiting period to avoid the likelihood of an ill-considered decision, inspection and regulation of abortion facilities, and hospitalization requirement for riskier late-term abortions, Fowler said.

Fowler spent the last 20 years in the public square, 12 years as a Tennessee state senator and the last eight years as a lobbyist and frequent guest on news programs. He is the author of “The Politics of Loving God: Courageous Truths for Contentious Times.”

The Family Action Council of Tennessee, which Fowler heads, was formed in 2006 by a group of citizens concerned about the growing negative impact of public policies on the family. FACT’s mission is to equip Tennesseans and their elected officials to effectively promote and defend a culture that values God’s design for the family.
