Atlanta City Council Members Continue Their Work to Protect Reproductive Rights

The city of Atlanta will meet on August 1st to further discuss their plan to donate $300,000 to the National Network of Abortion Funds in order to support organizations like Access Reproductive Care-Southeast that help women get the support and money they need for abortions, including out-of-state travel.
