Pro-Life Groups Support Sen. Slama after Threats of Violence
LINCOLN, NE —Nebraska Catholic Conference, joined by Nebraska Right to Life and Nebraska Family Alliance, issued the following joint statement today in light of recent news that Senator Julie Slama has received threats after introducing pro-life legislation:
"There is no place in a civil society for the violent threats and messages sent to Senator Slama in response to the news that she introduced a pro-life bill in the Nebraska legislature. No public official, or any person regardless of their stance on any issue, deserves to have their human dignity degraded and disrespected in such a way.
We are proud to support Senator Slama and her legislation to help create a state where every unborn life is celebrated, valued, and protected. Together, our groups implore all people on both sides of the issue to civility, decency, and charity as we consider the fundamental question in front of us. It is not only the outcome that will test us, but how we treat one another.”
