Nebraska Democrats cried and shrieked with joy after a bill that would have protected babies in the womb once a heartbeat is detected failed to secure the necessary number of votes needed to advance in the state legislature.
“ABORTION IS LEGAL IN NEBRASKA,” State Senator Megan Hunt tweeted Thursday.
“Speechless,” she added, showing a video of euphoric women. “Thank you. Abortion is legal in Nebraska.”

The video went viral, in part because it helped highlight how fanatic the Democratic Party has become on this issue.
“I used to be very moderate on Abortion,” OldRowSwig, a popular conservative on Twitter, said. “But seeing people cheer on killing their own kids like their football team won the Super Bowl instead of it being a somber, serious issue that those in desperate circumstances could turn to disgusts me. These people are psychotic.”

“Celebrating abortion is glorification of violence,” Babylon Bee founder Seth Dillon tweeted. “Change my mind.”

“I don’t care what your position on abortion is, cheering for abortion is repugnant. And all I see are white women cheering for the death of black babies,” another tweeted. “Gross.”

Currently, abortion remains legal in Nebraska up until 22 weeks.
Nebraska’s “Heartbeat Bill” failed thanks to one Republican. Republican Senator Merv Riepe abstained from voting, which blocked the bill from advancing. Republicans needed 33 out of 49 senators to vote to end debate in order to bring it to a floor vote, Catholic News Agency reported. They received only 32 votes, thus likely ending the bill’s chances this legislative session.
In reaction, GOP Governor Jim Pillen was furious.
“I am a staunch defender of life and supporter of the Nebraska Heartbeat Act,” Pillen said after the vote. “I am profoundly disappointed in the cloture vote today. It is unacceptable for senators to be present not voting on such a momentous vote. I call on Sen. Merv Riepe to make a motion to reconsider and stand by the commitments to life he has made in the past.”
Until that happens, the video of the Nebraska banshees weeping tears of happiness because women can kill their children until 22 weeks should serve as a reminder of just how insane the Left has gone.
