On May 1, voters in Lubbock passed Proposition A, a local ordinance that designated the city as a “sanctuary for the unborn,” with 62 percent of voters voting in favor. The election, which made Lubbock the largest city in the United States to establish such a designation, attracted heavy campaign spending by both sides as the trail to Election Day heated up.
On May 1, voters in Lubbock will be deciding the fate of Proposition A, which would declare the City of Lubbock as a “sanctuary for the unborn.” A hot-button issue from the start, Lubbock is experiencing a heightened level of outside interest in this local election. Proposition A was placed on the ballot in response to the opening of a Planned Parenthood clinic, and the subsequent petition and City Council rejections of the sanctuary ordinance that opened the door for a vote.
