“We’re talking about whether or not women are going to die.” 

That was State Sen. Jen Day’s reaction to a last-minute move for another—and unexpected—vote to further ban abortions in Nebraska.

Just two weeks ago a move to ban abortions after six weeks failed, as talk of a 12-week compromise left the six-week ban one vote short.

Now, however, that 12-week ban is back but there are no guarantees it will succeed.

Conservative State Sen. Merv Riepe, who had proposed that first compromise 12-week ban, is apparently on the fence, as the Omaha World-Herald reports that Riepe is “still undecided.”

The new 12-week proposal—a plan by State Sen. Ben Hansen is based on “gestational age”—according to Hansen’s amendment that is “the age of a preborn child as calculated from the first day of the last menstrual period of the pregnant woman.” But Hansen’s timetable is said to be more restrictive than Riepe’s which bans abortions 12 weeks after fertilization.

Hansen’s proposal is an amendment to the already highly controversial “Let Them Grow Act” which would prohibit gender altering procedures for anyone under the age of 19.

It’s not clear when a vote on Hansen’s 12-week plan will take place. This session is down to its last 15 working days.
