While some pro-life cities have voted in recent months and years have voted to become “sanctuaries” for the unborn, others are moving in exactly the opposite direction.
On Monday, the Baltimore City Council unanimously approved a resolution to make their city a “sanctuary” for women seeking to kill their unborn children.
The resolution, advanced by council members Zeke Cohen and Phylicia Porter, will establish a fund to bankroll organizations offering abortions and “other women’s health services” to Baltimore women, local news outlet WBFF reported.
According to Cohen and Porter, Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott, a Democrat, supports the measure.
It’s unclear how large the abortion fund in the city will be. However, Cohen said it will consist of a combination of taxpayer dollars from the city and philanthropic donations, which will be funneled into pro-abortion organizations like The Baltimore Abortion Fund.
We are proud of the work we do to ensure access to abortion care in Maryland & are so glad that the Baltimore City Councils agrees that reproductive health is important enough to protect. pic.twitter.com/tSBxXZwQxi
