Abortion is the intentional killing of an innocent preborn child. The key word here is “intentional.”

Here is what abortion is NOT:

  • Cancer treatment on pregnant women
  • The procedure of removing part of the fallopian tube containing an embryo since that child cannot grow there and will not survive (ectopic pregnancy)
  • The D&C procedure or labor-inducing pill is sometimes needed when the child has naturally died in the womb (miscarriage) and the mother needs medical help to remove the already deceased child from her womb.
  • Emergency preterm delivery

In addition to these, there are other medical treatments women may have to undergo for their own health while pregnant, but none of those treatments require the mother to intentionally kill her child.

In all of these cases, true healthcare is needed. In all of these cases, abortion (intentionally killing the child) is NOT needed. Intentionally killing an innocent human is never true healthcare.

Abortion facilities exist to kill babies in healthy pregnancies. They might say they exist to help women, but if you call any abortion facility and ask for medical assistance when having true complications, they will likely turn you away. Likewise, if you reach out needing material support to care for your child, they will likely turn you away.

The abortion mindset says the solution to every problem is to kill. The pro-life mindset says suffering never outweighs the inherent value of life. Most abortionists were trained to heal as physicians. Instead, they kill children for money. Abortion is not healthcare and abortionists are not healers.

Abortion is not Constitutional because nowhere in the Constitution does it say anyone should have the right to kill another living, innocent human being.

It IS Constitutional, however, that every person has a right to life.

U.S. Supreme Court: On January 22, 1973, in two separate decisions (Roe vs. Wade, Doe vs. Bolton), the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that abortion would be legal in all 50 states according to the following guidelines:

First Trimester: The abortion decision is left entirely to the woman and her physician.

Second Trimester: A state may enact laws in ways related only to the woman’s health.

Third Trimester: Abortions may be prohibited after “viability” unless the mother’s health or life would be affected. The key issue of this is that the court went on to define “health” in Doe vs. Bolton to mean, “…the medical judgment may be exercised in light of all factors – physical, emotional, psychological, familial, and the woman’s age – relevant to the well-being of the patient.”

U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee: Following exhaustive research, the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee concluded the following in a report dated June 7, 1983: “Thus, no significant barriers of any kind whatsoever exist today in the United States for a woman to obtain an abortion for any reason during any stage of her pregnancy.”

Nebraska Right to Life and its affiliate chapters believe in the respect for life from fertilization until natural death. As such, we oppose abortion, except in the cases to save the life of the mother. Therapeutic abortions, those abortions done to save the life of the mother, are almost nonexistent in today’s medical climate. If the mother’s life were threatened, a conscientious physician would try to save both mother and baby. In the rare case where such a decision is needed, the problem would be that of balancing one human life against another.

What is Abortion?

Chemical Abortion Pill

1st Trimester Suction Abortion

2nd Trimester Dilation & Evacuation Abortion

3rd Trimester Induction Abortion

Behind the Abortion Pill:

Over half of all abortions in Nebraska today are “medication” or “chemical” abortions – those caused by abortion-inducing drugs.

The abortion pill—also referred to as medical abortion, chemical abortion, RU-486, or self-managed abortion—is usually used to reference the two-pill process that includes medications taken to terminate the pregnancy of a developing baby within the first 10 weeks. It involves two drugs: mifepristone (Mifeprex) and misoprostol. It is NOT the morning-after pill.

The first pill is prescribed within the first seven to ten weeks of pregnancy and given at the office visit to block the effects of progesterone. Progesterone is an essential hormone that women naturally produce that provides vital nutrients needed for the developing baby to thrive. Without progesterone, pregnancies will fail. The second drug is taken at home 6-48 hours later and causes cramping and bleeding in order to empty the uterus and expel the baby.

Over half of American abortions occur via the abortion pill. As these numbers continue to rise, we believe no woman should feel forced to finish a chemical abortion she regrets starting.

What is Abortion Pill Reversal & How does it work?

The Abortion Pill is injuring thousands of women and the FDA doesn’t require any reporting

Abortion in Nebraska

In 2010, Nebraska passed the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, meaning abortion beyond 20 weeks will remain illegal in Nebraska. This first-in-the-nation law was groundbreaking, however the majority of abortions are performed before 15 weeks, so we need a law that protects babies and their mothers prior to 20 weeks.

During the first legislative session of 2022, LB933 – the Nebraska Human Protection Act, was introduced. It was a trigger ban that would go into effect if/when Roe v. Wade is overturned. LB933 does have a life-of-the mother exception. Unfortunately, it failed by just two votes.

Even with Roe now overturned, abortion in Nebraska is still legal until 20 weeks. But Nebraska can now pass and uphold stronger pro-life laws that protect every life from abortion without being struck down by the courts.
We will immediately begin working with our state lawmakers to pursue the strongest protections possible for every unborn child while providing care and support to mothers.

US Abortion Statistics

Data just released by the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute reports on the end of a long-term decline in abortions in the United States. According to Guttmacher, since the group’s last report issued in 2017, abortions have increased by nearly eight percent (7.87%), with one in five pregnancies ending in an abortion. In 2020, 930,160 abortions were committed nationally — an increase of 67,840 over the 862,320 abortions reported in 2017.

This means that today, approximately 2,548 babies are killed every day in the U.S. by abortion. That’s approximately 106 abortions per hour, 1.8 per minute, and one every 35 seconds.

Collective state abortion statistics are gathered privately by the Guttmacher Institute and federally by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Because of reporting lag, their most recent data is often 2-3 years old. In most cases, state-level abortion facts are more current than the numbers reported by Guttmacher or the CDC. Guttmacher’s abortion statistics are estimates built on surveys of all known and suspected abortion providers; the CDC totals are made up of the actual abortion counts reported to the state health department by each abortion facility.
