Bill codifying protections for abortion providers, out-of-state patients has passed the Nevada legislature

Carson City, NV — Today, the Nevada Assembly voted 27 to 14, with one absence, to pass SB131, a bill that codifies an existing executive order protecting abortion providers in Nevada who provide care to out-of-state patients as well as the out-of-state abortion patients themselves. 

The bill now heads to Governor Lombardo’s desk for signing. 

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

“We applaud the Nevada Assembly for voting to pass SB131. Nevada has a long history of supporting abortion rights and access, and it is more important than ever that we continue to uphold this legacy in the face of increasing attacks against the right in our neighboring states and even at the federal level. Protections for our abortion providers and the patients who come to our state seeking care are a vitally important step in acknowledging the present national abortion access landscape and Nevada’s role as a safe haven state.

Poll after poll shows us that the people of Nevada also support these protections despite national attacks against our rights. We are grateful to Senate Majority Leader Nicole Cannizzaro and her fellow legislators who voted in favor of this bill at every step of the process and we hope that Governor Lombardo takes the broad support for these measures into account when this bill arrives at his desk.” 


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.
