South Bend council sets new vote on anti-abortion group plan

Posted: Updated:

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - The South Bend Common Council will consider overriding the mayor's veto of its decision to allow an anti-abortion rights center to open next to a proposed abortion clinic.

The South Bend Tribune reports that council President Tim Scott says the override vote will occur Monday upon the request of two council members.

The council voted 5-4 last month to grant the rezoning sought by Women's Care Center for near where Whole Woman's Health Alliance wants to start a non-surgical abortion clinic.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg (BOO'-tah-juhj) said the neighborhood wouldn't benefit from the change and vetoed the rezoning. At least one opposing council member would have to change their vote to override the mayor.

Texas-based Whole Woman's Health Alliance is appealing the state's rejection of an abortion clinic license.
