Duggars rally for Amendment One

Stream Fox 17 newscasts LIVE starting with Fox 17 This Morning at 5 am and News at 9 pm.

A proposed amendment put to the Tennessee voters in one year would allow lawmakers to put certain restrictions on abortions.  The Duggar family, from "19 Kids and Counting" are in Nashville to put their support behind the measure.  FOX17 This Morning talks with Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and reaches out to opponents of Amendment One.  Here's the interview with the Duggars and the statement from Planned Parenthood is below:

"We are working with our national partners including the ACLU, the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice and others to wage an aggressive campaign to encourage Tennesseans to vote no on Amendment One and to defeat this terrible amendment that will shamefully remove privacy rights from Tennessee's Constitution. Constitutions should be amended to expand rights not to eliminate or deny them.  We also know that this fight will be the focus on national attention and that many people on both sides will be involved, but in the end this is for Tennesseans to decide. When they do, they will vote no Amendment One and will defeat this attack on constitutionally guaranteed privacy rights."
