Coverage Gap Leaves Rural Tennessee Hospitals on Life Support

Four rural hospitals have closed and dozens are at risk of shuttering: That's the fallout, some say, from Gov. Bill Haslam's decision not to join the Affordable Care Act in 2013 and tap into millions in promised federal funds for Tennessee's financially-strapped health care institutions. Of some 125 hospitals statewide, three facilities closed in West Tennessee since the governor rejected conventional Medicaid expansion Haywood Park Community Hospital in Brownsville, Camden General and Gibson General.

The Nation's Biggest Abortion Battle Is Playing Out in Tennessee

The most contentious political battle raging in Tennessee this year has nothing to do with control of the US Senate or the governor's mansion - it's taking place over a ballot measure that would make Tennessee the next hot zone in the war over abortion rights. The referendum, called Amendment 1, would amend Tennessee's constitution to read : "Nothing in this Constitution secures or protects a right to abortion or requires the funding of an abortion," including for pregnancies "resulting from rape or incest or when necessary to save the life of the mother."
