To the editor:
I am grateful that the governor of Nebraska has signed into law a bill barring abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
With the medical technology we have today that allows us to see inside the womb, there is no doubt babies in the womb are alive and certainly human, with a heartbeat and brain waves just four weeks after conception. At 20 weeks, the preborn child is a fully developed human being who can live outside the mother’s womb.
I question what kind of a society we have become that we would allow and tolerate the destruction of an innocent human life. How can this be justified on any level?
The supporters of abortion on demand will say our laws allow it, but that still does not make it right. It is an evil law, and I am glad that there are those out there who have sympathy for the unborn child and are working to protect them and fight for their rights.
Thank you, Gov. Heineman and the Nebraska Legislature, for what you are doing to change the law of the land to favor the child in the womb.
