After nearly three hours of hearing comments from the public Tuesday, Danville City Council members were split 7-7 on whether to approve an ordinance that would impose fines on anyone shipping or receiving abortion pills or supplies in the mail. The final vote came down to Mayor Rickey Williams Jr., who asked for a motion to table the issue, then voted “yes.”

Audience members who spoke in support of the ordinance cited religion, morals and feelings of guilt they say women can have after receiving an abortion as reasons they believe voting “yes” is the right thing to do.
