In politics, fighting for codified abortion access and reproductive rights is crucial to securing the fundamental rights and autonomy. But what can be harder to see for many people are the ways in which reproductive rights are tied to so many other issues, including voting rights. 

Voting is one of the most powerful tools at our disposal for shaping the direction of our society and ensuring that our voices are heard. When it comes to fighting for abortion access and reproductive rights, the outcome of elections can have a profound impact on the laws and policies that govern these matters. By casting our votes for candidates who support reproductive freedom and health care access, we can help protect and expand these rights for all people.

In recent years, we've witnessed numerous attempts to restrict reproductive rights and access to abortion services. From the loss of federal abortion protections for abortion to legislative efforts to defund Planned Parenthood to the appointment of anti-abortion judges to the United States Supreme Court, there are powerful forces working to undermine the progress that has been made in this area, even in states like Nevada. Without powerful and passionate advocacy and electoral engagement, more restrictions will have devastating consequences for people seeking to exercise their reproductive rights.

Abortion rights and reproductive health care encompass a range of issues, including access to contraception, family planning services, safe and legal abortion procedures, and more. These rights are fundamental to ensuring that people have control over their own bodies and lives. However, it’s no secret that despite widespread support across party lines, these rights are still fiercely debated and, in many cases, restricted by lawmakers at both the state and federal levels.

It's important to recognize that many of the most significant decisions regarding abortion access and reproductive rights are made at the state level. Our state legislature has the power to enact laws that either protect or erode these rights, making local elections just as crucial as national ones. By electing state representatives who prioritize reproductive health and justice, we can help safeguard these rights within our own communities.

As voters, we have a responsibility to educate ourselves on these issues and to support candidates who will champion these rights. By participating in the democratic process and casting informed votes, we can work towards a future where everyone has the freedom to make their own choices about their bodies and their futures. Remember, your vote is your voice – use it to stand up for reproductive justice
