Today, supporters of the “Protect Women & Children” ballot initiative submitted more than 205,000 signatures to the Nebraska Secretary of State, including at least 5% of registered voters in over 90 counties.

10% of the state’s registered voters, about 123,000 signatures, and at least 5% of registered voters in 38 of 93 counties were needed by July 3rd to place a constitutional amendment on the ballot.

Nebraska Family Alliance released the following statement celebrating the signature submission:

“In less than 100 days, over 205,000 Nebraskans signed the Protect Women & Children ballot initiative.

SUPPORT LIFENEWS! If you want to help fight abortion, please donate to!

Nebraskans are motivated to stand up to protect women and children from the abortion industry’s extreme proposal that would expand late-term abortion, eliminate parental notification requirements, and authorize taxpayer funding of abortion.

Voters will have a clear choice this election, and the Protect Women & Children initiative reflects our state’s commitment to provide women real care and support while protecting the lives of precious baby boys and girls.”
