Say no to abortionAnother community has officially denied the abortion industry any chance of setting up shop within its borders.

Following the lead of the smaller city of Hayes Center, Nebraska, Blue Hill, Nebraska, population less than a thousand, has passed an ordinance banning abortion in the community.

"We had a citizen bring to our attention that this happened in another smaller community in Nebraska and wanted to see if we would put it on the agenda," City Council President James Lounsbury shares about how the item surfaced. "It went on the agenda. [It's a] pretty simple little process."

Blue Hill's new ordinance, which passed unanimously, also bans the morning-after pill as well as the abortion pills used up to the 10th week of pregnancy. But from a personal standpoint, Lounsbury is more concerned with the late-term abortions, so he is pleased to be a part of his community's preemptive action to keep the abortion industry at bay.

"It's a good start," the city council president asserts. "It's something that's hopefully going to help out, just get some attention. We don't have a clinic anyway, so right now it's not going to do anything different in our community."

Blue Hill's ordinance went into effect immediately, making the community the 25th in the nation and the second in Nebraska to officially ban abortion.
