San Antonio, TX — Proposition A, which aimed to reform criminal justice policies in San Antonio, was defeated at the ballot box. The city charter amendment sought to decriminalize abortion and low-level marijuana possession, ban no-knock warrants and police chokeholds, codify and expand cite-and-release, and establish a city justice director to oversee criminal justice-related policies.

Following statement can be attributed to Drucilla Tigner, Co-Executive Director Planned Parenthood Texas Votes

"The results of the election do not change the facts -- the majority of people in San Antonio and statewide believe abortion should be legal and that people should not go to jail for seeking or helping a loved one obtain basic health care. While we didn't have the outcome we hoped for with Prop A, we are thrilled to celebrate the victory of abortion rights champions who were re-elected to the San Antonio City Council, including Teri Castillo, Jalen McKee-Rodriguez, Melissa Havrda, and Mayor Ron Nirenberg.

“Each of these champions has fought for policies at City Council that would deprioritize abortion prosecution and are committed in their support of reproductive freedom. While we would have welcomed codifying that policy into the charter, we know San Antonio is on the right track. Planned Parenthood remains committed to fighting against attacks on our freedoms and won't stop until every Texan can access the care and resources they deserve."


Planned Parenthood Texas Votes (PPTV) is the nonpartisan policy, advocacy and political arm for the Planned Parenthood affiliates in Texas.
