  • In a 2019 statement alongside other Tennessee bishops, Bishop Spalding stated that it would not be “prudent” to support the heartbeat bill in his state. While he supported the “intention” of the bill, Spalding said he did not support the bill “knowing the certainty of its overturning when challenged” and because of “the court-ordered fees that would be paid to pro-abortion plaintiffs.” (Tennessean)
