DENTON, Texas — Denton City Council passed a resolution Tuesday night to direct the city's police department to make enforcing Texas' complete ban on abortion a lowest priority. After a large rally and protest before the meeting, about 40 people signed up to talk on the resolution. 'We don't need abortion clinics,' one speaker said. 'If we can get them all shut down, this will be great.' 'I was raped when I was 5 years old. The childhood of sexual abuse I endured caused me to start my period at 9 and assaulted again at 12,' another speaker shared.
