In June 2017, the Seattle City Council and Mayor built on their 2014 resolution that called for federal lawmakers to repeal all bans on public insurance coverage of abortion, by passing a proclamation in support of policies that support insurance coverage of abortion and funding for reproductive health services for all immigrants. This effort was led by Surge Reproductive Justice and Legal Voice, who also advocated for the 2014 City Council resolution that called for the repeal of federal bans on abortion coverage.
