NEBRASKA GOVERNOR JIM PILLEN, JOINED BY OVER 30 SENATORS, HAS SIGNED LB-574 INTO LAW.

THE BILL INCLUDES A 12-WEEK ABORTION BAN, WHICH TAKES EFFECT IMMEDIATELY, AND INCLUDES REGULATION OF PUBERTY BLOCKERS FOR MINORS AND A BAN ON GENDER-ALTERING SURGERIES FOR MINORS, WHICH BOTH TAKE EFFECT ON OCTOBER 1ST.

PILLEN CALLED THE BILL SIGNING A HISTORIC DAY FOR THE STATE TO PROTECT ITS CHILDREN:

NEBBILL1 OC………STATE OF NEBRASKA. :18

STATE SENATOR JONI ALBRECHT, WHO INTRODUCED A BILL TO BAN ABORTION ONCE A HEARTBEAT IS DETECTED, WAS HAPPY THAT EVEN THOUGH HER BILL DIDN’T PASS, SHE WAS GLAD TO SEE THE 12-WEEK ABORTION BAN INCLUDED IN THE LEGISLATION DID HAVE ENOUGH VOTES.

NEBBILL2 OC…….HEARTBEAT PROTECTION. :16

THE ABORTION LEGISLATION WAS ATTACHED AS AN AMENDMENT TO SENATOR KATHLEEN KAUTH’S BILL TO STOP UNREGULATED USE OF PUBERTY BLOCKERS AND BAN GENDER-ALTERING SURGERIES FOR MINORS.

GOVERNOR PILLEN SAYS THE BILL PROTECTS CHILDREN WHO AREN’T OLD ENOUGH TO MAKE LIFE CHANGING DECISIONS:

NEBBILL3 OC…..SAVES BABIES. :22

PILLEN’S TWO GRANDDAUGHTERS WERE PRESENT AT THE BILL SIGNING IN LINCOLN.
