Protecting the right to life

The Cornhusker State is the best place in the world to live, work, and raise a family. That’s not just something we say—it’s reflected in national data. On a per capita basis, Nebraska welcomes more babies into the world each year than almost any other state.

Over the years, Nebraska has worked to protect the sacredness of life from the moment it begins. Our pro-life culture is evident all across Nebraska. We see it in volunteers at crisis pregnancy centers. We see it in families who brave all kinds of weather to participate in pro-life walks and prayer vigils. We see it as we drive down our highways on pro-life billboards and license plates. We see it in the way Nebraskans treat one another with dignity and respect.

This month marks 48 years since the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision, which legalized abortion in all 50 states. Tragically, millions of babies have died since Roe, and more than 800,000 unborn babies continue to be killed by abortions each year. Abortion on demand is a betrayal of our nation’s founding commitment to the self-evident truth that every human being is endowed by their Creator with the unalienable right to life.
