Background and Where We Are in the Process:

SB179 has passed both the Assembly and the Senate and is in “enrollment”, the last step before it lands on the Governor Sisolak’s desk. He has three choices: veto, sign, allow it to go into law without his signature. It is truly up to him.

Please take a moment to convey your opposition to Gov. Sisolak.

Two weekends ago, Nevada Right to Life launched a statewide postcard campaign to ask Governor Sisolak to veto SB179. Thousands of cards have poured in and continue to pour in. Please Click here to contact Governor Sisolak and ask him to veto SB179.

As we note in our press release to the Nevada media below, SB179 protects everyone but women. Nevada has the 5th most permissive abortion laws in the United States.

SB179 will make Nevada a Wild West abortion state where almost everything goes by removing key protections and requirements.


  • Removes penalties for back alley abortions and for providing DIY [Do It Yourself] home abortion kits and other concoctions by removing NRS 201.120 and NRS 201.130.
  • Eliminates age verification making child sex trafficking easier in Nevada.
  • Eliminates screening for coercion thereby protecting abusers.
  • Eliminates requirement to give women consistent information concerning the abortion procedure in writing, including potential physical and emotional impacts.

SB179 is not a bill that would bring Nevada abortion law in line with current medical practices.

Medicine and science have advanced far beyond 1973, yet progressive democrats would like us all to believe that the unborn is nothing more than a “clump of cells” and abortion is nothing different than a tooth extraction. SB179 gives a green light to dangerous back-alley abortions performed by individuals who got their training on YouTube and Do It Yourself home abortion kits bought on the corner or on eBay.

SB179 protects predators, the abortionist’s bottom line, and aids those who victimize women and girls. It protects everyone but women.

Thank you to everyone who has emailed, written to, or called a legislator on SB179. Thanks to everyone who has spread the word.
