Last night the Pueblo City Council voted 4-3 to table a proposed anti-abortion ordinance that would have allowed civil penalties of up to $100,000 against Pueblo abortion providers.
The Pueblo City Council will vote on an anti-abortion ordinance during their upcoming work session on Dec. 12. Introduced by Councilor Regina Maestri, the ordinance passed its first reading during Monday’s Council meeting. The background paper, included in the meeting minutes, notes, “legal Staff does not recommend approval of this ordinance.”
Anti-abortion activists used the public comment period during last night’s Pueblo City Council meeting to voice opposition to a CARE [Clinics for Abortion and Reproductive Excellence] clinic that recently purchased property in Pueblo. Activists called on the council to take action to prevent the clinic from opening.
