Two town vote to become “sanctuary cities for the unborn” in Nebraska

Two towns in Nebraska have passed ordinances to become “Sanctuary Cities for the Unborn,” or places where performing an abortion can be criminally punished. Hayes Center and Blue Hill, both of which have fewer than one thousand residents, joined several towns in Texas in approving such ordinances in April.


“It shall be unlawful for any person to procure or perform an abortion of any type and at any stage of pregnancy in the village of Hayes Center, Nebraska,” reads the resolution approved by the village of Hayes Center Board of Trustees, as reported by The Hayes Center Times-Republican.

“It shall be unlawful for any person to knowingly aid or abet an abortion that occurs in the village of Hayes Center, Nebraska.”

Regarding their ordinance, Blue Hill Mayor Keri Schunk told KSNB in an interview last week that while the town doesn’t have an abortion clinic, the ordinance was meant to be a preventive measure.
