On Tuesday afternoon, Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman signed into law a bill banning abortions after 20 weeks of gestation based on the belief that fetuses can feel pain at that stage. He also signed another bill requiring women to be screened for mental health problems before having abortions.
No matter where you stand on abortion, we hope that you appreciate the billboard that we'll be erecting in Lincoln, Nebraska, to remind everyone that electing not to take animals' lives is always a sane choice.
