Legislative Democrats Commend Governor Steve Sisolak on Executive Order to Protect Reproductive Freedom in Nevada

Las Vegas, NV – Nevada Legislative Democrats commend Governor Steve Sisolak for issuing an executive order to protect anyone seeking reproductive care in Nevada. Governor Sisolak and Nevada Democrats have protected and will continue to champion the fundamental right to abortion. The executive order will help shield health care professionals and any person from criminal or civil liability imposed by other states.

“The quick actions by Governor Sisolak will send a message to the Supreme Court and legislative Republicans that Nevada Democrats will do whatever is necessary to protect and preserve the right to choose.” said Assemblywoman Sandra Jauregui. “Nevadans and those who come to our state seeking safety and care will be protected under this order. I want to thank Governor Sisolak for his decision to protect not only people in Nevada from punishment for seeking or receiving reproductive care, but people from across the country, too.”

“Governor Sisolak’s executive order will protect health care workers and all people seeking safety from cruel laws aimed at criminalizing individuals for exercising their right to reproductive care.” stated Assemblywoman Brittney Miller. “This order will prevent innocent people from punishment simply for exercising their right to choose. I applaud the Governor for his brave decision to ensure people can access abortion care.”

“Senate Democrats applaud Governor Sisolak for his strong action in support of reproductive health care,” said Senator Dallas Harris. She continued, “Extreme Republicans up and down the ballot are seeking to criminalize women who receive abortion care in our state. But as longas there is a strong Governor and Democratic majorities in the legislature, abortion access in Nevada will remain legal, safe, and accessible for all.”
