We have exciting news to share! LB 626, the Nebraska Heartbeat Act, has been voted out of the Health and Human Services Committee.
This is a key step in the legislative process that paves the way for the bill to be taken up and debated by the full legislature in the coming weeks.
If passed into law, LB 626 will protect babies with heartbeats from abortion and save thousands of lives every year.
We are grateful to the state senators who voted in favor of science and the truth and advanced the bill out of committee. As LB 626 heads to the full body, we are calling on the rest of our legislators to protect the most vulnerable among us by sending this legislation to Governor Pillen for his signature.
The Health and Human Services Committee also advanced LB 574, the Let Them Grow Act, to protect children from gender transition drugs and surgeries.
LB 574 ensures children receive help not harm and treatment not transition by prohibiting puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and gender reassignment surgeries for minors.
These bills are opportunities to secure generational wins that will protect preborn babies and children in our state for decades to come.
Nebraska Family Alliance has provided testimony on 15 bills already this session, including several major proposals to protect and advance religious freedom, medical conscience rights, parental rights, and girls’ sports.
On Friday, we will be in the Revenue Committee supporting LB 606, the Nebraska Pregnancy Help Act, which will broaden support for pregnant women and parents in need by creating an annual $10 million tax credit for private donations to Pregnancy Help Organizations.
Your prayers, advocacy, and financial support inspire us to keep working to ensure Nebraska is a place where God is honored, families thrive, life is cherished, parental rights are protected, and religious liberty flourishes.
