Wednesday is a big day in the Nebraska Legislature as debate is scheduled to begin on a heartbeat bill that could save thousands of unborn babies’ lives.

After narrowly failing to pass the legislation last year, pro-life lawmakers said they have just enough votes, 33, to overcome pro-abortion Democrats’ filibuster and pass the life-saving legislation this spring, the Nebraska Examiner reports.

“I’m very encouraged and very impressed with the senators who support this bill,” Sandy Danek of Nebraska Right to Life told the newspaper. “I think we feel confident that the pro-life senators who have signed onto the bill will remain with us. … We feel very good about our commitments.” (Excerpt from LifeNews.)
