Laura Ebke:

Voted "Present Not Voting" in committee on the most recent bill to add sexual orientation & gender identity to Nebraska's non-discrimination law in 2017.

Laura Ebke:

Was "Excused Not Voting" on a vote to indefinitely postpone LB295 to create educational choice scholarship tax-credits and "Present Not Voting" on the vote to reconsider the motion which would kill the bill. Most senators who supported the bill voted "No" on that motion to reconsider.

Laura Ebke:

Oppose

Opposed LB1032 (Medicaid expansion) in 2016.

Laura Ebke:

In 2017, Senator Ebke opposed the pro-life Title X provision eliminating taxpayer funding of abortion providers and voted to remove it from the state budget bill. In 2018, Senator Ebke supported the pro-life Title X provision in the state budget bill.

Laura Ebke:

Senator Ebke states on her website she is unequivocally pro-life, but also indicates the government could not be successful in banning abortion. "Those of us who oppose abortion can make it difficult for women to get an abortion, or for doctors to provide them—but the law by itself won’t stop them from happening, it seems. That will require non-governmental institutions like churches and families to instill the value of respect for life into our children."
