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

(Portland, OR)  --  Portland city officials estimate their proposed boycott of Texas over the state's restrictive abortion law could cost Texas millions of dollars.  City officials say Portland has signed almost 35-million dollars in contracts with Texas businesses over the last five years.  The Portland City Council is going to vote on the proposed boycott, which would extend to all city employee travel to Texas.  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 know she's pregnant.
