Council lines up for abortion access

Friday, September 3, 2021 by Jo Clifton

Mayor Steve Adler, Mayor Pro Tem Natasha Harper-Madison, and Council members Greg Casar, Pio Renteria, Vanessa Fuentes, Ann Kitchen, Leslie Pool, Paige Ellis and Kathie Tovo lined up outside City Hall during a break from Thursday’s Council meeting to reiterate their commitment to women’s reproductive health. Council Member Alison Alter was absent and Council Member Mackenzie Kelly was probably feeling a little bit shy about expressing her opinion on this topic. The bandanas they are holding in the photo say, “Bans Off Our Bodies.” Casar <a “href=”″ target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”>tweeted: “Since 2019, this City Council has committed $500K+ to help Texans access abortion, especially those forced to travel. We need cities across the state to do the same!” #AbortionIsHealthCare.”
