Ordinance to make Abilene a ‘sanctuary city for unborn children’ passes in November, what it means for residents

ABILENE, Texas (BigCountryHomepage.com) – With the election fast approaching, you may be thinking more about who the next Governor of Texas might be. But what about ordinances on local ballots? The city of Abilene will take a vote in November to decide whether or not it should become a “sanctuary city for unborn children,” but it’s a bit more complicated than that.

This is the first time that an ordinance written by a citizen will appear on the ballot.

Read Project Destiny’s full 18-page proposal here:

If this ordinance is passed by the people of Abilene, a most notable stipulation of the ordinance is found in Section 20, Articles 88 and 89: It will become illegal for any employer located – not based – in the city of Abilene to somehow help its employees to have an abortion. It will also be illegal for an Abilene resident to leave town to terminate her pregnancy — so will anyone who could help her do so.

As a reminder, the city of Abilene does not host any electoral abortion services.

Project Destiny will host an open public forum to answer questions about the ordinance at Fountain Gate Church, beginning at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, October 23.

You can vote for or against in early voting from October 24 to November 4 and on Election Day; Tuesday, November 8.
