STATE OF ABORTION IN NEVADA
To Protect Abortion in November:
Steve Sisolak (D), Incumbent
Gov. Sisolak trusts Nevadans to make their own decisions about their bodies, and has a long track record of supporting reproductive health care. Re-electing him will ensure that Nevadans keep their reproductive rights.
Politicians should never have a say when it comes to the personal decision of when or if to start a family and as long as I’m governor, I’ll keep it that way.Gov. Steve Sisolak, 6/24/2022
Gov. Sisolak signed an order to protect out-of-state patients seeking abortions in Nevada, as well as a law that repealed felony criminal penalties for abortion and removed a requirement that doctors give their patients anti-abortion propaganda.
Gov. Sisolak expanded reproductive health care access by passing the Trust Nevada Women Act, increasing grants for family planning, and making it easier to obtain birth control.
Sisolak prioritizes Nevadans’ health: He signed legislation to protect Nevadans with pre-existing conditions, end surprise billing, rein in medical debt collectors, and cut health insurance premiums.
Joe Lombardo (R), Challenger
If Lombardo becomes governor, he’ll do everything he can to restrict abortion access for Nevadans and eliminate protections for out-of-state abortion seekers.
First and foremost I am a pro-life individual. I plan to lead as a pro-life governor. And any legislation that would come, or bill, or resolution that would come before my desk, I would look at it with a pro-life lens.Joe Lombardo, 5/26/2022
Endorsed by Donald Trump, Lombardo has extreme anti-abortion views that contradict the beliefs of the vast majority of Nevadans, who support the right to an abortion.
Lombardo is out of touch with residents of the state, calling an effort to provide health insurance to hundreds of thousands of Nevadans “bullshit.”
When asked if he would work to repeal Gov. Sisolak’s protections for abortion patients and providers, Lombardo said, “Yeah absolutely.”
Lombardo says he would support “any” anti-abortion legislation.
Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto (D), Incumbent
Sen. Cortez Masto has never wavered in her commitment to defend human rights and expand health care — from fighting against sex trafficking as Nevada's attorney general to championing abortion access in the U.S. Senate.
I cannot stress this enough. This [Senate] seat is the pathway to protecting our rights in this country… To preventing a federal abortion ban.Sen. Cortez Masto, 7/11/2022
Sen. Cortez Masto has consistently supported abortion access at every level — including by voting against a bill that would have made it illegal for federal health care programs to cover abortion.
Sen. Cortez Masto has repeatedly voted to protect and expand access to reproductive health care. She also introduced legislation to safeguard people’s right to travel across state lines for an abortion and patients’ data privacy.
She has voted to confirm White House appointees and judges with records of standing by people's right to make their own decisions about their bodies.
We can trust Sen. Cortez Masto to vote against a national abortion ban and vote for the Women’s Health Protection Act — a bill that she co-sponsored and which would make abortion access a federal right that no state could take away.
Adam Laxalt (R), Challenger
The U.S. Senate is split between abortion rights champions and opponents. If Laxalt wins, it would be a loss for Nevada — and the whole country.
Roe v. Wade was always a joke.Adam Laxalt, 6/6/2022
Laxalt is decidedly against abortion. Anti-abortion groups have endorsed him throughout his career, and Donald Trump endorsed him this year.
If elected, Laxalt will support a 13-week abortion ban in Nevada and “look into” overturning the state’s protections for abortion.
As the state’s attorney general, Laxalt acted against the beliefs of 9 out of 10 Nevadans who think abortion should be legal and joined other anti-abortion attorneys general in signing Nevada onto at least four amicus briefs in support of other states’ abortion restrictions. If Laxalt becomes U.S. senator, we expect him to side with anti-abortion senators who may push for a federal abortion ban.
