FAQ about LB814
Does dismemberment abortion happen in Nebraska?
Yes. While dismemberment abortion is not common in Nebraska, it does occur. Over the last 10 years, anywhere from 21 to 186 babies have died by live dismemberment every year (1.0 to 7.3% of Nebraska’s abortions).
Will LB814 prohibit a woman's access to abortion?
No. This bill will prohibit one especially gruesome method of abortion, which will help affirm the dignity of human life. The bill would not restrict other methods of abortion available during the same time frame of a woman’s pregnancy.
Does LB814 penalize women?
No. LB814 specifically states that no woman upon whom an abortion is performed shall be liable for performing or attempting to perform a dismemberment abortion. Criminal and civil penalties apply only to abortionists who violate the law.
