A bill to increase state regulations of abortion clinics is causing all sorts of crazy testimony from those opposing the bill at the state capitol in Nebraska. The Judiciary Committee heard testimony on a bill that would require abortion clinics be defined as ambulatory surgical centers.
As Greg Schleppenbach of the Nebraska Catholic Conference says, abortion clinics must be equipped for emergencies. Makes sense, right? Oh but wait, the Nebraska Catholic Conference is anti-abortion so that’s why they’re actually supporting these measures. That’s what’s often said. But the two don’t necessarily follow. In fact, it’s quite logical that a group such as the Nebraska Catholic Conference that teaches about the sacredness of all human life also aims to protect the life of babies as well as women.
The Catholic Church doesn’t have ulterior motives in its teachings.
