U. S. Senator Ben Sasse, a champion for the right to life and author of the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, issued the following statement after the Nebraska Legislature voted to pass legislation banning dismemberment abortions.

“Nebraskans believe in human dignity, and the pro-life movement is growing. Science shows us that these are babies, and basic decency tells us that they deserve a shot at life. Senators Geist, Hilgers, Speaker Scheer, and many others deserve credit for getting this important legislation across the finish line.”
