Constitutional Amendment to protect reproductive freedom has passed the Nevada legislature for the first time

Carson City, NV — Today, the Nevada Assembly voted 28 to 14 to pass Senate Joint Resolution 7, a resolution that would amend the state constitution to include protections for reproductive freedom, including the right to abortion, birth control, prenatal care, childbirth, postpartum care, vasectomy and tubal ligation, miscarriage management, and infertility care

The passage comes ahead of a scheduled hearing in Assembly Commerce and Labor Committee of SB131, another vitally important piece of legislation protecting abortion access in the Silver State.

Statement of Lindsey Harmon, Executive Director, Planned Parenthood Votes Nevada:  

“We applaud the Nevada Assembly for voting to pass SJR7. The past few months alone have shown us how anti-abortion politicians and judges will stop at nothing to restrict abortion access across the country with the fight to protect access to mifepristone as well as countless restrictions in 19 states across the country. 

It is abundantly clear, that now is the time to take every measure possible at the state level to protect reproductive care. Nevadans have shown time and time again that they support the right to abortion and reproductive health care and we are grateful to the legislators who lead with that in mind this legislative session.” 


Planned Parenthood Votes Nevada is a statewide non-partisan, 501 (c) 4 non-profit organization that advocates and educates on issues of reproductive health care, with special consideration for advancing equitable access to abortion in an effort to empower all Nevadans, no matter income, race, gender, sexuality or immigration status to maintain and expand access to quality health care.
