The city of Levelland, Texas, voted to become one of the latest municipalities to ban abortion and declared itself a “Sanctuary for the Unborn.”

All four City Council members voted in favor of the ordinance, which states: “It shall be unlawful for any person to procure or perform an abortion of any type and at any stage of pregnancy in the City of Levelland, Texas.”

“It shall be unlawful,” the ordinance says, “for any person to knowingly aid or abet an abortion that occurs in the City of Levelland, Texas.”

The nearby city of Lubbock approved a similar ordinance on May 1. Planned Parenthood challenged Lubbock’s ordinance in court, which was dismissed by U.S. District Judge James Wesley Hendrix, who argued that Planned Parenthood lacked jurisdiction.

“Because plaintiffs fail to show, as they must, that they have Article III standing to sue the city, the Court dismisses the case for lack of jurisdiction,” the judge wrote last week. The lawsuit was dismissed without…
