LB 814, which would finally end the barbaric practice of dismemberment abortion, has been formally introduced in the Nebraska Legislature’s Judiciary Committee.

This is a critical pro-life bill that will protect the lives of many preborn babies in our state.

State senators on the committee can now vote to advance the bill to the full legislature where it will have the opportunity to pass into law, but first we need to get the bill out of committee!

Nebraska Family Alliance was at the Capitol to provide testimony in support of the bill. Now, senators need to hear from you! Contact members of the Judiciary Committee and ask them to vote “Yes” on LB 814.

Below, view a sample email, talking points, and instructions on how to contact senators on the Judiciary Committee.

SAMPLE SCRIPT

Whether you write an email or make a phone call, please be polite and respectful. Choose bullet points from below to craft your own message.
“Hello, my name is [Full Name], and I am from [City]. I am contacting you to ask that you support LB 814 to prohibit the inhumane practice of dismembering living preborn children. 
  • No living human being should be torn apart limb by limb. 
  • At the stage of development when dismemberment abortions are performed, a baby has a beating heart, fully developed arms and legs, and can swallow, yawn, hiccup, and smile.
  • Preborn babies are not puzzles to be pieced back together after an abortion. They are babies deserving of love and compassion. 
  • LB 814 will not only stop the killing of innocent preborn children in a gruesome manner, but it will also help reduce the increased risk of complications and emotional distress to the mother from this type of procedure.
  • U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, lead author of Gonzales v. Carhart, wrote that “No one would dispute that, for many, dismemberment abortion is a procedure itself laden with the power to devalue human life.”
  • Please support LB 814 and protect innocent human life, the health and safety of women, the integrity of the medical profession, and society itself from the degrading effects of tolerating such a practice.
I urge you to support LB 814. Thank you for your time and for considering my request.
