City Council Adopts Resolution Calling For Public Fund Supporting Local Reproductive Health Organizations

May 17, 2022

The Baltimore City Council on Monday night adopted a resolution calling on Mayor Brandon Scott and the council to create a public fund supporting local reproductive health organizations. City Councilmembers Zeke Cohen (District 1) and Phylicia Porter (District 10) introduced the legislation. Following the publication of a draft Supreme Court opinion overturning Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision declaring abortion rights are protected under the 14th Amendment, the city can “be a national leader in the fight to preserve the right to an abortion,” the lawmakers said in a joint release on Monday morning.
