Nebraska Bill Amending Parental Notification Requirement (LB 1109)
This law was last updated on Dec 19, 2014
LB 1109 would have amended provisions of Nebraska law relating to consent and parental notification (Nebraska Rev. Stat. § 71-6902), and eliminated certain penalties with respect to abortion. This bill would have repealed the parental consent for abortion law and return the state to a parental notification standard. The bill would have prohibited performing an abortion until at least forty-eight hours after written notice has been delivered to the parents of the minor.
If the pregnant woman elects not to notify her parents, the bill would have permitted a court to authorize an abortion if the court finds the woman to be mature and capable of giving informed consent to the proposed abortion.
The bill was referred to the Judiciary Committee with a hearing on February 27, 2014. The bill failed to advance from committee.
