Nevadans deserve to know Governor’s policy plans on abortion rights ahead of 2023 session

Las Vegas, NV — This evening, Gov. Joe Lombardo addressed Nevadans in the annual State of the State Address ahead of the 2023 legislative session. During the address Gov. Lombardo outlined his top priorities including increased funding for education and policing, though protecting Nevada’s access to reproductive freedoms and abortion care was not listed. 

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

“We are looking forward to working with Governor Lombardo in the upcoming legislative session in the fight to protect reproductive rights and access to abortion care. On the campaign trail, the Governor made clear that not only did he trust Nevadan’s support for abortion rights as the basis for good governance, but he also committed to continuing to uphold protections for patients traveling to Nevada and providers in Nevada set forth by Gov. Sisolak. 

While he made no mention of the issue during the State of the State address, we hope to work hand in hand to make this an issue of priority for the new governor. It has been six months since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, and in that time millions of people lost access to critical care and are forced to travel to states like Nevada as such we implore the Governor to stand with Nevadans and all those who come to our state for abortion care – because in this state we value the freedom to make our own reproductive health care decisions.” 


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.
