Conscience Protection Deserves Your Support -- Now

Nebraskans, we are in a very precarious position.

I've urged you to take action on the Healthcare Freedom of Conscience Bill (LB 461) several times before this. But this week is an especially crucial time to contact your State Senators and urge them to enthusiastically support this important legislation.

If you've called or written before. Terrific. It's time to do so again.

LB 461 would provide much-needed protection to all healthcare providers and institutions from being forced to participate in any health care function that violates his or her or its conscience. The bill is supported by conservative religious leaders throughout the state and by all the pro-life, pro-family groups.

But LB 461 is being vigorously opposed by the "usual suspects" like Planned Parenthood, other abortion promoters, and Nanny State progressives.

That's why your calls, letters and prayers are so vital.
