House Bill 1660 would extend the harmful Tennessee fetal assault law, which threatens pregnant women and new mothers with jail with the stated goal of getting them into treatment, but does nothing to help expand access to services even though it has been shown that there are not enough facilities that are able or willing to treat pregnant women. As a result, this law is forcing women into the criminal justice system because they do not have other options.
