The Pueblo city council plans to vote on a measure that would effectively ban abortions within the city limits, the first proposal of this kind in Colorado since the U.S Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.  The ordinance, which faces uphill odds of passing the politically divided council, would seek to use a mechanism similar to the law in Texas that bans abortions after six weeks and empowers local citizens, not the government, to file claims against abortion providers.  By a narrow margin, the council approved moving the ordinance forward on Monday, setting the stage for a formal vote on December 12, as first reported by the Pueblo Chieftain.
