Nevada officials approve pro-abortion ballot measure for November

Nevada, abortion, vote

The Nevada Secretary of State’s office has approved a pro-abortion ballot measure that seeks to enshrine a false “right” to abortion in the state’s constitution. The measure is slated to go before the state’s voters this November.

The measure was spearheaded by Nevadans for Reproductive Freedom, a coalition connected to Planned Parenthood’s political advocacy arm, Reproductive Freedom for All Nevada (formerly NARAL Pro-Choice Nevada), and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). In May, the group announced it had collected more than 200,000 petition signatures to get the measure on the ballot, exceeding the 103,000 it needed.

“The support this initiative has received from Nevadans throughout the signature collection process shows what we’ve known to be true: Nevadans believe that healthcare decisions about abortion are best left to women, their doctors, and those they love and trust — not politicians,” Lindsey Harmon, the president of Nevadans for Reproductive Freedom said in a statement.

Though abortion is already legal in the state through 24 weeks, abortion supporters are doing all they can to strip any pro-life protections for preborn children and ensure that the state becomes as pro-abortion as possible.

The Nevada Catholic Conference warned that should the ballot measure pass, it would allow abortion through all nine months, remove parental notification laws in place to protect minors, and increase the risks of abortion for women by allowing non-physicians to commit abortions.

Montie Chavez, a representative for the Archdiocese of Las Vegas, told Catholic News Agency that the Nevada Catholic Conference is working with other churches to take an “ecumenical and interfaith” stance against the amendment.

“We believe that God alone is the author of life and the sole arbiter of death,” he said, adding that the “pernicious amendment would have terrible consequences for families in Nevada.”

Per state law, even if the measure is approved by a majority of voters this November, it still needs to appear on the 2026 ballot and be approved once again for the constitutional amendment to take effect.
