Nebraska Right to Life executive director Julie Schmit-Albin said her group worked with Krist to draft the bill. She said the bill attempts to deliver abortion information to women electronically. Schmit-Albin would like to see Nebraska's information be modeled after Kansas, which has a website called Women's Right to Know Act.

"As technology improves, our statutes need to keep up, especially when it's a life or death situation," she said.

In 1993, DHHS began printing booklets with pictures of how fetuses develop in the womb. Schmit-Albin said the booklets were not being handed out to all women considering abortions and that women have instead been told to call an 800 number.

"Our abortion facilities should not be able to skirt the law," she said.
