More than 50 people attended Monday’s Athens City Council meeting seeking to make Athens a sanctuary city for reproductive health in the wake of the US Supreme Court’s Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.

The Court ruled on June 24 that “The Constitution does not confer the right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives.”
