Emboldened by Texas' S.B. 8 and other anti-abortion efforts, during the 2022 legislative session, extreme politicians tried to pass multiple abortion restrictions, including a trigger ban that would have banned abortion in the state when Roe was overturned. Nebraskans showed up and defeated all of these proposals, but the threat still looms.
Nebraska has an anti-abortion majority in the legislature. While we have allies in the legislature committed to health care to stop an abortion ban in the short term, we must fight to protect and expand abortion rights in our state.
