The bill passed the State Senate with a vote of 21 to 12 with one Republican Senator, Ben Kieckhefer, voting for it and two Democrat State Senators voting against it, Moises Denis and Marcia Washington. SB179 passed the Assembly 27 to 13 on a party line vote. SB 179 TEXT: Revising provisions relating to informed consent to an abortion; repealing criminal penalties on certain actions relating to the termination of a pregnancy; repealing the prohibition on the excusal of a person on certain grounds from testifying as a witness in a prosecution relating to the termination of a pregnancy; and providing other matters properly relating thereto. https://www.leg.state.nv.us/App/NELIS/REL/80th2019/Bill/6300/Text Under current Nevada law, a wife needs the consent of her husband before killing their unborn baby. The bill also removes any restrictions tied to the viability of the baby. Thirteen year old girls would have unlimited access to abortions without any parental consent or that of a judge. “The time that they are actually viable is getting earlier and earlier,” Hansen, (R) said. “It’s just something we’ve got to look at more scientifically because the truth is that we are killing living human beings.” Assemblyman Gregory Hafen II, (R) said. “I agree with that. I think that once we have a heartbeat, once we have brain activity, we have new science and we now know that and I think that’s the right thing to do,” Assemblywoman Rochelle Nguyen, (D) said. “You see some of these states that appear to be going backwards and I like knowing we’re in a state that’s moving forward.” According to nationwide studies conducted between 2003 and 2005, at the time, 20 to 35 percent of babies born at 24 weeks of gestation survive, while 50 to 70 percent of babies born at 25 weeks, and more than 90 percent born at 26 to 27 weeks, survive. As of 2017, babies are starting to survive as early as 22 weeks.
