Portland City Council To Vote On Proposed Texas Boycott Over Abortion Law

(Portland, OR)  --  Today, the Portland City Council is scheduled to vote on a proposed boycott of spending money with Texas businesses over the state's new abortion restrictions.  The boycott would extend to all city employee travel to Texas.  Meanwhile, Texas' Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick calls Portland's proposed boycott depraved and says it will put Portland's residents in grave danger.  Yesterday, Patrick called Portland's intent to boycott Texas is in his words "a complete joke."   The Texas law bans abortions after doctors can detect fetal cardiac activity -- which is typically around six weeks of a pregnancy and is often before a woman knows she's pregnant.
