 Tennessee senate wades into abortion fight

By LUCAS L. JOHNSON II
Associated Press Writer

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The state Senate on Thursday passed a proposal to amend the Tennessee Constitution so that it doesn't guarantee a woman's right to an abortion.

The 24-9 vote was the first step of many toward officially amending the state constitution. The measure would go before voters if the General Assembly approves it twice over the next two years.

The state Supreme Court has ruled that the Tennessee Constitution grants women a greater right to abortion than the U.S. Constitution.

Abortion rights supporters are attacking the measure as a stepping stone to prohibiting all abortions in Tennessee if the U.S. Supreme Court overturns the landmark abortion decision in Roe v. Wade.

"The resolution is an all-out attack on the women of Tennessee and seeks to rob women of their right to make choices about their own health, safety and personal welfare," said Hedy Weinberg, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Tennessee.

Sen. David Fowler, a Republican sponsor of the bill, proposed a similar resolution last year that cleared the Senate but stalled in a House committee.

"I regret this will cast me as being hardhearted, unsympathetic and unkind but that's not who I am," Fowler said.

I assume you mean the SALE of sex toys......not the USE. [img style="CURSOR: pointer" onclick=url(this.src); src="http://www.cheesebuerger.de/images/smilie/frech/f010.gif" border=0][/DIV]

Tennesse isn't the only one.

[FONT face="times new roman,serif"]HUNTSVILLE (AP) The law that bans the sale of sex toys, but not their possession, in the state of Alabama is again being challenged. [/FONT][FONT face="times new roman,serif"]Michael Fees, a Huntsville attorney, represents a group of 10 people, all of whom have been fighting the state's ban on selling sex toys since the law was enacted in 1998. [/FONT][FONT face="times new roman,serif"]In a motion filed with a U.S. District Judge Lynwood Smith on Tuesday, Fees argued that a U.S. Supreme Court decision banning the criminalization of gay sex based on privacy issues also protects his clients' right to buy and sell sex toys. [/FONT][FONT face="times new roman,serif"]He argued that the state law is an unwelcome intrusion into his clients' bedrooms. [/FONT][FONT face="times new roman,serif"]If Smith decides to overturn the law, it will mark the third time he has done so. [/FONT][FONT face="times new roman,serif"]In 1999, Smith ruled against the law only to have it reversed by the 11th Circuit Court after the state attorney general's office appealed his decision. In 2002, Smith again ruled against the law, but a three-judge panel of the 11th Circuit overturned him[/FONT].
