A plan that could restrict abortions in Mt. Juliet has cleared another hurdle

The Mt. Juliet Planning Commission passed a zoning amendment that blocks a new health clinic from performing surgical abortions.

The target appears to be Carafem Women’s Clinic. Among other things, it offers an abortion pill. 

The company has also talked about having surgical abortions. 

The amendment passed by the commission Thursday night would prevent the surgeries at that location. 

City Commissioners will have to approve the zoning change again for it to become law.
