‘Abortion Until the Moment of Birth’: Activists Launch Late-Term Abortion Measure in Red State

Updated: November 17, 2023 at 1:15 pm EST  See Comments

A petition referendum effort is being launched by pro-abortion activists trying to enshrine controversial late-term abortions in Nebraska’s Constitution. It follows on the heels of similar successful efforts in other red states.

Protect Our Rights, the pro-abortion coalition behind the effort submitted proposed petition language to the Nebraska Secretary of State’s office late last month. That language was kept under wraps until Wednesday when the state’s top elections office released it. 

The ACLU and Planned Parenthood announced the constitutional amendment that would eliminate the state law that protects babies in the womb after 12 weeks. Other pro-abortion groups pushing the measure include, I Be Black Girl and the Women’s Fund. 

The petition drive seeks to change the state Constitution to “provide all persons the fundamental right to an abortion” up to viability when the baby can survive outside the womb, or when needed to protect the life or health of the pregnant patient. Under the petition language, the patient’s healthcare practitioner would determine fetal viability.

Organizers will need to collect around 125,000 valid signatures by next summer to get the measure on the ballot in 2024.
