LINCOLN – On Wednesday, the Nebraska Family Alliance (NFA) presented Governor Pete Ricketts with its inaugural Defender of Life award in recognition of his work to protect pre-born babies in Nebraska.  Gov. Ricketts received the honor at a prayer breakfast hosted by NFA at the Lincoln Cornhusker Marriott Hotel.  The prayer breakfast coincided with the Governor’s proclamation of a Statewide Day of Prayer to end abortion.  Gov. Ricketts, Lt. Governor Mike Foley, and State Senator Suzanne Geist each gave brief remarks at the gathering.  On January 8th, Senator Geist introduced LB 814 to prohibit dismemberment abortion in Nebraska.  Governor Ricketts and numerous State Senators support the bill.
