URGENT ACTION
Nevada Assembly to pass S.B. 179 Abortion Bill

At this time, S.B. 179 is expected to pass the Nevada State Assembly and then go to the Governor’s desk to be signed into law

S.B. 179 not only proposes a greater threat against the sanctity of life. It neglects the prospect of empowering Nevada parents to be involved in a profound medical decision involving their children. Also, the complete decriminalization of abortion.

S.B. 179 does not curtail the number of abortions. It does not address parental notification of underage minors seeking abortion. It takes away the physician’s obligation to obtain the age of the person undergoing an abortion circumventing the obligation as a mandatory reporter of sexual assault or abuse of an underage minor. It decriminalizes unqualified persons who perform or assist with abortions. By doing so it also removes important protections and makes it easy for people who already prey on the economically challenged immigrant populations and victims of human trafficking.

Therefore, we encourage you to express your strongest opposition to S.B. 179 which proposes to unreservedly decriminalize abortion in the State of Nevada. We urge you to go to send a message to Governor Sisolak to Veto S.B. 179 by clicking this link.http://gov.nv.gov/Contact/Email_the_Governor_Form/

ACCIÓN URGENTE  
Asamblea de Nevada paso SB 179 Ley de Aborto

En este momento, S.B. 179 se espera pase la Asamblea del Estado de Nevada y llevarla al Gobernador para ser firmada y convertida en ley. S.B. 179 S.B. 179 No solamente propone una gran amenaza contra la sacralidad de la vida. Descuida la perspectiva de empoderar a los padres de Nevada a involucrarse en decisiones médicas que implican a sus hijos. Además, la despenalización completa del aborto.

S.B. 179 no disminuye el número de abortos. No aborda notificaciones a los padres de menores de edad buscando abortos. Quita la responsabilidad a los médicos de obtener la edad de la persona que se realiza un aborto, evitando la obligación como reportero mandatorio de asalto sexual o abuso de un menor de edad. Despenaliza a las personas no calificadas que realizan o asisten en abortos. Al hacerlo, también elimina importantes protecciones y facilita las personas que ya se aprovechan de las poblaciones de inmigrantes con dificultades económicas y las víctimas de tráfico humano.

Por lo tanto, les recomendamos expresar su oposición al S.B.179 que propone despenalizar sin reservas el aborto en el Estado de Nevada. Les recomendamos enviar un mensaje al Governados Sisolak para Veto S. B. 179 opriman en el enlace http://gov.nv.gov/Contact/Email_the_Governor_Form/
