Durham City Council Resolution

On December 17, 2018, the Durham City Council voted unanimously to adopt a resolution calling for repeal of the Hyde Amendment, a harmful policy which impacts low-income people seeking abortion. With a vote of 7-0, the City Council resolution also urged Governor Roy Cooper and North Carolina’s federal delegation to support the right of all people to access safe and comprehensive health care, including abortion. This is the third local resolution in support of insurance coverage of abortion adopted in North Carolina.
