City and Lancaster County offi~i
cials had called Wednesday morning
to ensure Kwik Shop was taking
measures, Morgaridge said.
However, Irene Wray, the manag
er of Ga$ ‘N Shop, 3000 Cornhusker
Highway, said she hasn’t taken any
thing off the shelf because the
Hostess snacks she had stocked wore
a different code number than those
being recalled.
Employees at most stores con
tacted by the Daily Nebraskan,
including Q4Quik on 17th and Vine
streets, and Casey’s General Store,
550 West Cornhusker Hwy., said they
knew nothing of the Hostess recall.

don’t put this on the back shelf.”
Nebraska Attorney General Don
Stenbferg testified in support of
Crosby’s bill, saying unborn children
currently have fewer rights than televi
sions and cars.
“This bill recognizes that when an
unborn child is killed, the parents lose
the life of a child that is very real and
very precious to them,” he said.
The concept of viability in Jones’
bill is too vague, Stenbeig said, and it
would be very difficult for prosecu
tors to prove the fetus was viable. And
if the child was not viable, the loss
would be no less devastating, he said.
Bill supporters said they were
careful to ensure the legislation would
apply to acts that are already criminal
- not abortion.
Each bill contains a provision stat
ing, “In no case shall the mother of the
unborn child be prosecuted for any act
contributing to the death of the unborn
Stenberg said the proposals were
constitutional under the guidelines of
the Supreme Court’s Roe vs. Wade
decision. Twenty-four states now have
laws covering the killing of unborn
children outside the restrictions of
Roe, nine of which recognize life as
beginning at conception.

their current form
LeMieux said the bills conflict
with Roe on the definition of human
life and raise troubling privacy and
church-state issues. The larger issues
behind the proposals, he said, are reli
gion and anti-abortion rights.
“When you’re dealing with the
issue of when life begins, you cannot
escape religion in that discussion,” he
proposed to protect the rights of chil
dren like Zachary Griesemer, not as
part of a larger Catholic or anti-abor
tion rights agenda.
But Sen. Ernie Chambers of
\ Omaha, a member of the Judiciary
i Committee, said Crosby’s bill’s defin
ition of life reflected die position of
the Roman Catholic Church.
“To pretend that this is not a
Catholic issue, that is a pretense,”
Chambers said.
But Crosby disagreed.
“I was very disappointed that the
pro-choice coalition came in and
threw in an issue that isn’t there,” she
The committee took no action on
the bill.
