Dr. Nikki Zite vs Herbert H. Slatery III -- Tennessee Court Case - 03/29/2021This court case is over the fetal heartbeat bill and unconstitutional vagueness concerning the bill.
Article: 2 Tennessee abortion clinics grapple with uncertainty“We feel that the ban and a lot of the anti-abortion legislation is written in vague terms that make it hard to treat patients,” said Zite. Tennessee’s trigger law says abortions may be conducted by doctors only to prevent a death or “to prevent serious risk of substantial and irreversible impairment of a major bodily function of the pregnant woman.” “But exactly how much risk there needs to be is not clear,” Zite said. “Different physicians practicing at different institutions will have different interpretations of that law.”
