ABILENE, Texas (BigCountryHomepage.com) – As elections quickly approach, you may be thinking more about who the next Governor of Texas may be. But what about ordinances on the local ballot? The City of Abilene will take a vote in November to decide whether or not it should become a ‘Sanctuary City for the Unborn,’ but it’s a little more complicated than that.
This is the first time a citizen-written ordinance will appear on the ballot.
Read the full 18-page proposal by Project Destiny here:
Should this ordinance be voted in by the people of Abilene, a most-notable stipulation in the ordinance can be found in section 20, articles 88 and 89: It will become unlawful for any employer located – not based – in the City of Abilene to somehow help its employees obtain an abortion. It will also be unlawful for an Abilene resident to leave the city to terminate their pregnancy – the same goes for anyone who may help them do so.
As a reminder, the City of Abilene does not host any elective abortion-performing services.
Project Destiny will be hosting an open-to-the-public forum to answer questions about the ordinance at Fountain Gate Church, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Sunday, October 23.
You will be able to vote yea or nay during early voting on October 24 through November 4, and on election day; Tuesday, November 8.
