Multiple Texas cities have approved ordinances that are some form of the Guarding the Right to Abortion Care for Everyone (GRACE) Act, which prevent city funds from being used to investigate abortions. San Antonio is set to approve a resolution to support a woman’s right to abortion services and health care on Tuesday, August 2, but it’s not the GRACE Act. Not yet.
The resolution, if approved, is essentially city council taking an official stance on abortion rights after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in June. It also recognizes efforts from public officials like District Attorney Joe Gonzalez to use discretion when looking at abortion cases.
