In recent years, Tennessee lawmakers have enacted medically unnecessary restrictions intended to make it more difficult for people to exercise their right to access abortion care. As a result of these unjust restrictions, patients may experience burdens that make it more difficult to access the care they need.

Tennessee organizations have partnered together to fight these restrictions and defend against any new restrictions that lawmakers may try to enact. We are collecting patient stories—which can be anonymous—that we may be able to use to support those efforts.

Are you interested in sharing your story (which can be anonymous) about how these laws have affected your life, for use in our advocacy efforts? If so, please answer the questions below.
