Our children are our state’s greatest resource, and we must protect their developing minds, bodies, and hearts. States around the country, including Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, and South Dakota, have already passed similar measures, and more are poised to follow. Today’s vote is a historic step toward prioritizing the health and safety of children in Nebraska.
Giving kids puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and even transgender surgeries causes real harm and permanent damage. Children who are struggling to embrace their biological sex need love, support, and time—not experimental procedures with life-altering, irreversible consequences.
Nebraska Family Alliance is committed to ensuring LB 574 becomes law this session, and we’ll continue to update you as the bill advances through the legislature, letting you know when you need to take action and pray.
LB 574 must go through two more rounds of debate, and senators are facing enormous pressure.
If your state senator voted to advance the Let Them Grow Act, please send them a quick note thanking them for supporting this bill.
We will protect kids from “gender transition” practices that are halting children’s natural development and ensure they receive help, not harm.
