You would think that nobody would oppose this kind of law--but you'd be wrong:
"Planned Parenthood of the Heartland believes that LB1103 is a bad law for women. We will however, continue to serve the health and well–being of women within the confines of this regulation."Pro-life Americans are accused of being "extremists" on abortion. But who, really, are the extremists here? The people who managed to build a consensus that abortions after 20 weeks aren't really necessary, or the people who see any restrictions at all on abortion as being "bad" for women?
Planned Parenthood stands in the way of any pro-life/pro-abortion consensus that might arise to enact reasonable restrictions on abortion. Many people who are not against abortion are in favor of sane, sensible restrictions, like parental notification for minors, waiting periods, mandatory offers of ultrasounds and fetal development information, measures to ensure that women aren't being coerced into abortion, and outright bans on third-trimester abortions. Planned Parenthood, along with most pro-abortion politicians, opposes all of these possible restrictions to abortion and more. They really seem to think that it should be easier for a scared, pressured fifteen-year-old to get an abortion than it is (in many states) for her to have her ears pierced.
The real extremists are the ones who won't accept any limits at all on abortion. While I, as a pro-life Catholic, would prefer for all abortion to be illegal, I am happy to work with like-minded people to decrease the number of abortions. Sadly, those who call for abortion to be "safe, legal, and rare," usually only want them to be legal--they aren't concerned about safety (because clinic health inspections are too burdensome to women!) and they certainly don't want abortion to be rare, either (not when they can make $350-$900 and up for every one!). They're not just "pro-choice;" they're rabidly pro-abortion, and they really don't care about fetal pain or maternal coercion, so long as the customers keep pouring in.
