Abortion drug notice bill heads to final vote in Nebraska

May 24, 2019


A bill that would require Nebraska abortion providers to give women information about possibly continuing their pregnancy after taking the first of two abortion drugs is headed to a final vote in the Legislature.

Lawmakers advanced the measure Thursday through a second-round Thursday despite criticism that the information isn't backed by scientific evidence. The vote was 36-9 after supporters overcame a legislative filibuster.

Opponents say the bill is premised on a faulty and unethical study.

Wisconsin is also considering a similar bill.
