Nebraska becomes 9th state to add Abortion Reversal Pill information to informed consent statute

Pro-life Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts

And now there are nine. Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts has signed LB 209, meaning Nebraska joins Arizona, Arkansas, South Dakota, Utah, Idaho, North Dakota, Kentucky, and Oklahoma in having a law on the books requiring that women be informed about Abortion Pill Reversal (APR).

“Governor Ricketts has signed another pro-life bill into law,” said Julie Schmit-Albin, Executive Director, Nebraska Right to Life. “Under his tenure Nebraska is returning as a state leader in pro-life legislation.”

As Schmit-Albin explained , “LB 209 will have a meaningful impact for women undergoing chemical abortions. Women who regret starting the chemical abortion regimen will receive information on how to reverse that process and save their unborn child.”

LB 209 strengthens Nebraska’s already existing Informed Consent on Abortion statute. Abortion facilities now must direct the women to the Nebraska Department of Health & Human Services which would provide further information as well as help the woman to find a medical professional skilled in the protocol of providing progesterone to reverse the process.

Pro-abortionists hate any law that enhances genuine informed consent on abortion. Their goal is to speed rush women through the decision-making process, leaving as little time as possible for women to reconsider.

Which is why they particularly loathe women knowing about the Abortion Pill Reversal protocol. Here they are, having given a woman one of the two abortifacient drugs that make up “medication” (chemical) abortions, with another notch surely to be added to their belt.

Instead the woman (or girl) has second thoughts. If she does not take the second drug and instead takes progesterone to off-set the effect of the first abortifacient, she has as high as a 68% chance of saving her baby. But, of course, she needs to know about this—which is what adding the information to the Informed Consent on Abortion statute.

Congratulations to Nebraska Right to Life!
