STATEMENT FROM NEVADANS FOR REPRODUCTIVE FREEDOM ON RULING CHALLENGING PETITION INITIATIVE

Nevadans for Reproductive Freedom

For Immediate Release: Tuesday, November 21, 2023


Reno, NV — Today, a Nevada judge ruled against Nevadans For Reproductive Freedom and in favor of radical anti-abortion advocates legal challenge to the Nevadans for Reproductive Freedom PAC petition filed on September 14th, 2023.  The legal challenge, riddled with harmful misleading anti-abortion rhetoric, is simply a tactic to delay and deny Nevada voters the opportunity to decide for themselves whether to enshrine the right to reproductive freedom in the state constitution. 


Nevadans For Reproductive Freedom plans to appeal the decision to the Nevada Supreme Court in the coming days. 

Lindsey Harmon, President of Nevadans for Reproductive Freedom, said: 

“Nevadans overwhelmingly support putting reproductive rights into our state constitution, and voters should be aware that anti-abortion advocates still have plenty of state government allies who are willing to help them undermine reproductive freedom. However, we will not let one judge’s misguided ruling deter us from giving Nevadans the opportunity to vote to permanently protect their reproductive rights in the Nevada Constitution.”

Background on Abortion Protections in Nevada: 

  • A 1990 voter referendum codified the protections for abortion as outlined by Roe v. Wade into state law. However, statutory protections do not mean the right is codified in the state constitution. 

  • The petition initiative to enshrine reproductive freedom into the Nevada constitution seeks to build upon and improve existing statutory protections while taking into account the changing abortion access national landscape after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in its decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization in the summer of 2022. 

###


Nevadans For Reproductive Freedom PAC is a campaign united to enshrine the right to reproductive freedom into the Nevada constitution. We are comprised of a coalition of progressive organizations and citizens who believe that in the wake of the overturning of Roe v. Wade in the summer of 2022, Nevadans must take the final step of cementing into the state’s constitution the right to abortion, birth control, prenatal, birth, and postpartum care, tubal ligation, vasectomy, and infertility care.
