Nebraska fetal pain bill ‘axes Roe v. Wade’:
Bill: LB 1103
Abortion Pain Prevention Act. Under LB 1103, abortions after 20 weeks will not be allowed in Nebraska based on studies indicating an unborn child is capable of feeling pain by that stage in a pregnancy. The current standard is based on fetal viability, which is generally considered to occur around 22 to 24 weeks. It also will require physicians to report to state officials the point in the pregnancy at which abortions are performed.
