Austin, Texas City Councilmembers

Austin City Council members will introduce an abortion decriminalization resolution in July. The proposal will direct police to make investigating abortions their lowest priority in the capital of Texas, a state that will soon ban most abortions now that Roe has fallen. The sponsors, clockwise from bottom left, are Jose "Chito" Vela, Paige Ellis, Mayor Steve Adler, Kathie Tovo, and Vanessa Fuentes. (Official photos.)
