Women and pregnant people’s freedoms are under attack.
Everyone deserves the right to decide if, when and how to start a family. We cannot allow more restrictions to pass that stand in the way of women and the health care they need. Three bills have been introduced that would push abortion care out of reach, impacting people with low incomes, people of color, young people and many in rural communities.
It’s time for bold action. It’s time for solidarity. Are you in?
Use your voice to oppose the following bills that create unnecessary restrictions and interfere with personal health care decisions:
❌ LB 781 – Bans abortions at six weeks
❌ LB 933 – Bans abortions if Roe v Wade is overturned by the Supreme Court
❌ LB 1086 – Restricts access to medication abortion
These attempts to ban abortion will be heard by the Judiciary Committee this Thursday, February 24 beginning at 1:30 pm.
Your voice matters on this issue. Now is the time for bold action and loud voices to protect our freedoms and ability to have control over our own bodies!
