With the passage of two extreme anti-abortion bills in Nebraska – one which would ban abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy (LB 1103) and another which requires doctors to perform extensive screenings of women for any “risk factors” before providing an abortion (LB 594) – the Center has remained outspoken in the media about the real goal of the laws: to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Center President Nancy Northup has been quoted in a number of national outlets, including the New York Times, expressing her grave concern with the new legislation:
