The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has voted to institute a one-year travel ban to Alabama. LA is enacting such in response to the State’s recently passed pro-life bill.

The travel ban was authorized by the County Supervisors “imposes a one year travel restriction to the State of Alabama for official LA County business, except for emergencies and other limited situations.”

“This challenge by Alabama and other states would overturn decades of precedent. It is an attack not only confined to the residents of those states, but an act of aggression upon all of us,” Supervisor Solis said in a statement.

The Supervisory board also voted to send a letter to Alabama Governor Kay Ivey and other Alabama leaders requesting that they repeal the abortion ban immediately.

Further, the Supervisory board will send similar letters to other states who have enacted similar Pro-Life laws. In addition to Los Angeles; Colorado, last week banned her staff from traveling to the states as well.
