Speaker Mike Flood of Norfolk is bringing forward a controversial bill that would make it illegal for a woman to have an abortion in the state if the unborn child is more than 20 weeks old. He says we should protect unborn babies as the state has laws that even protect animals.
“Last week in fact, I read in the Omaha World that an Omaha woman has been charged with felony animal cruelty for mistreatment of a German Shepard. We rightly have laws against leaving animals in the cold without food or water.”
Several doctors and experts from across the country have flown to Lincoln at the Judiciary Committee Hearing.
