Pro-Life Nebraska

You’ll often hear me say that Nebraska is a pro-life state. I say this because Nebraska has a long, bipartisan tradition of working together to protect life through the years. One of the state’s first pro-life victories came from Senator Bernice Labedz of Omaha, a Democrat, who led the effort to enact a law requiring parental notification before a minor receives an abortion. Since then, Senators like Mike Foley, Mike Flood, Lydia Brasch, and Tony Fulton have all led successful efforts to pass great pro-life bills into law over the last three decades.

This week, I hosted pro-life Senators at the State Capitol to help celebrate the passage of LB 209. This bill, brought by State Senator Joni Albrecht of Thurston, helps strengthen the state’s informed consent laws by requiring that information be provided to expectant mothers regarding the reversal of medication abortion. The law will now ensure that women who have begun the abortion pill process have knowledge of their healthcare options should they choose to carry their pregnancy to term. By expanding access to information, this bill continues Nebraska’s ongoing commitment to support the women who play a special role in nourishing new life.
