The Atlanta City Council has approved a resolution that endorses “the fundamental right to abortion” as the U.S. Supreme Court deliberates a demand for Roe v. Wade to be reversed. The move calls on the Georgia Legislature to protect abortion rights and provide family planning as well as maternal care. The resolution argues that abortion restrictions disproportionately inflict harm on women who are “racial minorities, disabled, rural Georgians, youth, immigrants, and those experiencing financial and economic hardship.” saportareport.com
