City Council Approves Texas Reproductive Health Resolution

(Portland, OR)  --  Portland City Council is approving a resolution to spend 200-thousand dollars on programs in Texas that provide reproductive health care services.  The resolution is intended to send a message in opposition to Texas' new abortion law, which bans abortions after just six weeks of pregnancy, before most women even know they're pregnant.  The resolution also requires Portland to join the legal challenge against the law.  Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler originally wanted to ban travel by city employees to Texas and city purchases from the state, but he determined that could adversely impact the people they were trying to help.
