Two important pieces of legislation to protect reproductive freedom now head to the Assembly Floor for a vote    

Carson City, NV — On Monday evening, the Nevada Senate voted 13 to 8 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

Today, the Senate also voted to pass SB 131, a bill codifying protections for out-of-state patients and Nevada abortion providers, by 15 to 6. 

These two vitally important pieces of legislation now go Assembly floor for a vote. If passed this legislative session, SJR7 must pass once again in the 2025 session where it will then be sent to Nevada voters in 2026.

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

“We applaud the Nevada Senate for voting to pass SJR7 and SB131. These crucial votes come as we wait to hear if the Supreme Court will uphold a federal court decision out of Texas that revokes FDA approval for mifepristone, one of two drugs used in medication abortion, after over 20 years of proven safety and efficacy. 

It is abundantly clear, that now is the time to take every measure possible at the state level to protect reproductive care. As these pieces of legislation now head to the Assembly for a vote, we implore legislators to take action in continuing to protect our reproductive rights and freedom and pass SJR7 and SB131.”
