Abortion Opponents To Deliver Flowers To NE Senators

By Julie Hawkins. CREATED Jan 22, 2013

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Abortion opponents are planning to deliver flowers to Nebraska state senators to mark the 40th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court decision that declared abortion legal. 

The group Nebraska Right to Life will distribute flowers and cards to lawmakers' Capitol offices on Tuesday, the anniversary of the Roe versus Wade ruling. 

The flower distribution follows the group's annual "Walk for Life" event on Saturday, which drew an estimated 5,000 people. The gathering featured Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman, Lieutenant Governor Rick Sheehy, State Auditor Mike Foley, State Treasurer Don Stenberg, and U.S. Representatives Jeff Fortenberry and Lee Terry.
