Atlanta City Council passes measure opposing state's 'heartbeat' bill

The Atlanta City Council has voted unanimously to advance a resolution opposing the state's "heartbeat" abortion bill that passed earlier this month.

The legislative body passed the symbolic resolution "expressing the city’s opposition" to the bill banning abortions in the state once a fetal heartbeat is detected in a 13-0 vote on Monday.

The resolution now heads to Atlanta Mayor Keisha Bottoms (D) for consideration.

The vote comes as a number of district attorneys across the city have vowed not to prosecute women seeking abortions in the state in wake of the new law.

There's a saying that goes something to the effect, "Atlanta is an island of sanity among a sea of rednecks."

1. Yet, 50 miles from Atlanta, trump captured roughly 80% of vote.

But, a few closer counties swung Democratic in 2018, like Rep McBath.
