The Governor is proposing to revise the distribution of federal Title X healthcare funding to prevent the use of taxpayer dollars for abortions and abortion-related services. Nebraska is a pro-life state, and the state’s budget should reflect those values.
Life is precious. It is something that we can never take for granted. From our country’s earliest days, our Founding Fathers recognized life as the first right in the Declaration of Independence. As Americans, we have an obligation to step up and protect life. The right to life comes with responsibilities to ourselves and to others. Nebraskans across our state recognize these duties by standing up for the unborn, caring for the elderly, and getting involved in their communities among many other actions.
