pregnant woman handNebraska is among the states taking another step towards saving the lives of preborn children.

Nebraska lawmakers have passed a measure that strengthens its existing Informed Consent on Abortion law.

Julie Schmidt Albin, who heads Nebraska Right to Life, tells OneNewsNow the law informs women that in chemical abortions they can save the child's life if they act quickly enough.

Mifepristone (abortion pill)“If they regret taking that first pill, and they have remorse over it and they want to try and reverse that,” she says, “there is medical help available via our Department of Health website.”

The key is getting help within about 24 hours after taking the first dose. There is about an 80 percent possibility of saving the baby.

Albin says at least 500 babies have been born as a result of providing progesterone after the first dosage of mifepristone.

“These are women with their babies alive today,” says Albin, “who turned the remorse of having a chemical abortion into the joy over having delivered their babies.”

Nebraska becomes the ninth state to require that the information be given to women prior to having a chemical abortion.
