Nebraska’s legislature passed the “Let Them Grow Act” Friday, banning most abortions after 12 weeks and banning transgender medical procedures for people under age 19, KETV and other outlets reported.

“All children deserve a chance to grow and live happy, fruitful lives. This includes pre-born boys and girls, and it includes children struggling with their gender identity,” said Nebraska Gov. Jim Pilllen (R) in a statement Friday.

A similar bill that would have banned most abortions around six weeks, the “heartbeat bill,” fell one vote short of passing April 27. The abortion ban portion of LB 574 will take effect immediately if Gov. Pillen signs it.
