Let’s Keep Nebraska Pro-Life

It’s well-known that Nebraska is a pro-life state.  Over the years, Senators, Governors, and pro-life advocates have worked to make Nebraska a national leader in public policy protecting the dignity of human life.  Less than a year ago, the Legislature stood with Nebraskans and voted for a pro-life budget.  This was a big step forward in protecting the dignity of human life.
