After 4!4haurs of reconsideration, ASUN
voted again to pass the bid presented at last week’s
meeting to lobby against the legislative bid oppos
ing research on aborted fetal tissue.
About 60 people attended the meeting to voice
Unlike last week’s Association of Students of
the University of Nebraska meeting, die majority
of attendees spoke in favor of Schuerman’s bill
and asked die senators not to reconsider passing
“Since the babies can’t grow up and have a life
and contribute to society, this (research) is a way
they can,” said Emily Scherzberg, a junior in the
college of Human Resources and Family
Some opposition still remained.
As a result of last week’s vote, senior meteo
rology major Jeremy Wesley said students were
asking to have their portions of student fees that
support ASUN refunded
“I was opposed to the bill proposed, and I did
n’t want my money to support fetal tissue research;
I am morally opposed to anything that supports'
abortion,” Wesley said
The students’ response to last week^ passing
of ASUN’s bill prompted General Studies Sen.
Michelle Schrage to ask the senators reconsider
“The number of people who are being misrep
resented is substantial enough for us to take a neu
tral stance,” Schrage said
Arts and Sciences Sen. Jason Mashek and
General Studies Sen. Andy Mixan proposed a
neutrality bill to replace die original bill presented
by President Andy Schuerman.
Mashek said his bill’s position of neutrality
would “encourage people to speak (to state sena
tors) on their own behalf.”
The neutrality bill failed, but an amendment
proposed by College of Arts and Sciences Sen.
Natalie Hoover added some aspects of neutrality
to die original bill.
Hoover’s amendment stated the Government
Liaison Committee’s lobby will not keep students
from lobbying their own individual opinions at the
“I want to reiterate that we cannot take die stu
dents’ voice away,” Hoover said.
With Hooveri amendment, die bill was passed
with a vote of 14-11. The original bill had passed
with vote of 13-9 with two senators abstaining.
In other business, ASUN appointed Jason

Youths rally at Capitol
against teen tobacco use
By Margaret Behm
More than 400 young people from across
Nebraska marched to the Capitol for the sec
ond annual Teens Take On Tobacco youth rally.
“We are not only the voice of tomorrow,
we are the voice of today,” said Sarah Urban, a
senior at Omaha Bryan High School. “We
want to prevent figure teens from using tobac
co. That is what today is all about.”
Sera Barnett, who was on the planning
committee, said the rally’s purpose was to
show young people they make a difference.
‘Today is to get the youth that attended to
realize that they can have an impact,” said
Barnett, a freshman biochemistry major. “If
they go out in their communities, they can be
heard ifthey stand up for what they believe in.”
Gov. Mike Johanns spoke to the youth
about his experiences with smoking.
“When I was about your age, I started
smoking,” Johanns said. “I started because my
friends around me smoked.”
Johanns said his smoking became a ritual
that increased during his college years.
“Before I knew it, I was smoking a pack a
day, then two packs a day,”
Johanns said. “I hate to tell you that there were
many a day that I opened a third pack.”
Johanns said he experienced health effects
because of smoking.
