Tennessee Votes to Restore Life with Yes on 1

Amendment 1 Final Vote Tally

Yes – 728,751 52.61%

No – 656,427  47.39%

Tennessee’s campaign to win passage of pro-life Amendment 1 is celebrating a hard-fought victory despite being outspent more than 2-1 by abortion advocates, the Yes on 1 organization reports. The Yes on 1 campaign raised and spent $1.5 million in contrast to at least $4 million reported by Planned Parenthood’s “NO” campaign.

16 abortion facilities in Tennessee and across the country contributed a total of $3.5 million in efforts to defeat the pro-life amendment.

“We are grateful to God and to the good people of Tennessee for this victory,” said Brian Harris, president of Tennessee Right to Life and a coordinator with Yes on 1. “Despite millions of abortion dollars flooding our airwaves with deceptive ads, the people of Tennessee saw through the falsehoods and made their voices heard.”

Yes on 1 coordinated a statewide grassroots campaign heavy on volunteers and smaller financial contributions from individuals, churches and pro-life organizations.
