(Lincoln, NE) — A bill that would ban most abortions in Nebraska is dead. Lawmakers announced yesterday that efforts to end a filibuster against Legislative Bill 626 failed by a single vote.

If enacted, the measure introduced by Senator Joni Albrecht would have prohibited doctors from performing abortions if cardiac activity was detected in an embryo during an ultrasound.
