On Aug 3, Nebraska State Senator Megan Hunt tweeted on Aug 3, "The Speaker of the Legislature is phoning each member, asking if they will sign on to a letter to support a special session for a 12-week abortion ban."
Our voices were heard, and there will be NO special session held. This means abortion rights are safe in Nebraska until January 2023.
With no special session being called, things surrounding abortion rights in our state have quieted down. This doesn't mean we should stay quiet. You can keep calling your senator and letting them know how important it is to keep abortion legal.
