The City of Pasadena, California passed a pro-abortion resolution Monday “welcoming” women to come there to abort their unborn babies.

Pasadena Now reports the council voted 7-1 in favor of the resolution, receiving accolades from the local Planned Parenthood abortion chain.

Introduced by council members Steve Madison and Jessica Rivas, the resolution declares the city’s support for “reproductive freedom,” including abortion on demand.

“The city of Pasadena will continue to uphold everyone’s equality and liberty by protecting their reproductive freedom, educating residents about their rights to reproductive freedom, welcoming anyone to Pasadena to fully exercise their reproductive rights and acting as a model for other cities that want to uphold full reproductive freedom for all,” it states.

Although the resolution does not mention the word “abortion,” local Planned Parenthood CEO Sheri Bonner confirmed that supporting abortion was its main purpose.

“I’m thrilled Pasadena City Council bravely voted to say abortion is here to stay in our city,” Bonner said. “This sends a clear message to anyone traveling to California for an abortion that the City of Pasadena stands with them and supports their decision. I’m proud to live in a city that values and honors bodily autonomy and views abortion as an essential health care service.”

California has some of the most pro-abortion laws in the United States, and Gov. Gavin Newsom is working directly with the abortion industry to expand abortions even more in anticipation of the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade later this year. Among other things, the governor wants to use tax dollars to train medical students to become abortionists and to pay for abortions for women traveling from other states.

Some California cities, however, are rejecting the radical push for more unborn babies to be killed in abortions. Last week, the mayor of Fresno promised to veto a pro-abortion resolution proposed in his city, saying it would be too “divisive.”

“If this council item does come forth, is placed on the agenda and the item is voted upon, rest assured and given the opportunity, I will exercise my veto authority as the mayor of this city,” Mayor Jerry Dyer said.

Meanwhile, state and local leaders in many other states are taking action to protect unborn babies from abortion. To date, 44 cities have passed enforceable pro-life ordinances that outlaw abortions within city limits, and Florida appears poised to pass a 15-week abortion ban that would save thousands of unborn babies from abortion every year. West Virginia and Arizona also advanced similar bills to protect unborn babies this month.

Pro-life advocates also are working to expand support services for pregnant and parenting moms in anticipation that Roe may be overturned. The Supreme Court is expected to rule on a major abortion case from Mississippi in June.
