Ballot Initiative

Abortion advocates have initiated a ballot initiative which would create a right to abortion in the Nebraska Constitution allowing abortion until birth in our state. The abortion industry and out-of-state pro-choice advocacy groups are funding this venture as they collect the needed signatures to appear on the November 2024 ballot in our state.

Women and babies deserve better. They deserve compassion, support and the right to life. 

Language on Ballot

“All persons shall have a fundamental right to abortion until fetal viability, or when needed to protect the life or health of the pregnant patient, without interference from the state or its political subdivisions. Fetal viability means the point in pregnancy when, in the professional judgment of the patient’s treating health care practitioner, there is a significant likelihood of the fetus’ sustained survival outside the uterus without the application of extraordinary medical measures.”

Unpack the Language

Allow Full Term Abortion: Without defining “health,” courts have found that it can be based on non-medical factors, including mental, spiritual, financial or familial health. Furthermore, viability is defined as being based solely on the abortionist’s judgment.

Take Away Parental Rights: By using the words “all persons” in the amendment, this will mean parents will not have the ability to consent or even know if their minor daughter seeks an abortion. 

Eliminate Medical Protection for Women: “without interference from the state” puts all of Nebraska’s medical safeguards at risk. This includes obtaining informed consent and performing a medical screening, seeing a physician in person or even seeing a medical professional at all.
