HomePoliticsEVIL: NV DEMS’ CONST. AMENDMENT UNLIMITED ABORTIONS UPTO BIRTH Politics EVIL: NV DEMS’ CONST. AMENDMENT UNLIMITED ABORTIONS UPTO BIRTH March 23, 2023 Rob Lauer Political Reporter In 2024, Nevadans will get to vote to end slavery, and if Dems get their way, a new constitutional amendment allowing abortions up to birth. The party that refuses to define what a woman is, will allow women to kill their babies up to birth. SJR7 is a constitutional amendment requiring a vote by the legislature, and it must pass the state ballot process twice. Current law states “There is a significant likelihood of the sustained survival of the fetus outside the uterus without the application of extraordinary medical measures.” Abortions in the first six months can be performed in a clinic. After the first six months, abortions in Nevada must be performed in a hospital. Dems’ Constitutional Amendment would allow abortion clinic, like the ones run by Planned Parenthood, to perform more abortions, make more money, and give more money to Dems. Doctors won’t be required to perform abortions if SJR 7 passes. Dems plan to rerun 2022 elections tactics using abortion again to clobber Republicans who refuse to fight back. In 1990, Dems put Question 7 on a ballot initiative. It affirmed the right to an abortion by statute, and any changes to that would need a vote of the people. It passed with 60% of Nevada voters saying YES. And that was back when Nevada was a Red state. Should people be allowed to kill their babies when they can live outside the womb? Today, a fetus can survive outside the womb as early as 20 weeks, and babies can definitely survive at 24 weeks. Any abortion after 5 months is killing a person who can survive outside the womb. That’s why many are calling abortion after 6 months evil and wrong. In 20 years, babies may be able to survive completely outside the womb in an artificial womb that scientists are currently developing. If this passes, your public schools will be able to secretly take your daughter, without parental consent or notification, to get an abortion at a clinic without a doctor present.

Every individual has a fundamental right to reproductive freedom, which entails the right to make and effectuate decisions about all matters relating to pregnancy, including, without limitation, prenatal care, childbirth, postpartum care, birth control, vasectomy, tubal litigation, abortion, abortion care, management of a miscarriage and infertility care. The right of an individual to reproductive freedom shall not be denied, burdened or infringed upon unless justified by a compelling State interest that is achieved by the least restrictive means available. 2. Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection 1, the State may regulate the provision of abortion care after fetal viability, provided that in no circumstance may the State prohibit an abortion that, in the professional judgment of an attending provider of health care, is medically indicated to protect the life or physical or mental health of the pregnant individual. 3. The State shall not penalize, prosecute or otherwise take adverse action against an individual based on the actual, potential, perceived or alleged outcome of the pregnancy of the individual, including, without limitation, a miscarriage, stillbirth or abortion. 4. The State shall not penalize, prosecute or otherwise take adverse action against a provider of health care, who is licensed by the State, while acting within the applicable scope of practice and standard of care for performing an abortion upon an individual who has granted informed consent to the abortion. 5. The State shall not penalize, prosecute or otherwise take adverse action against any individual for aiding or assisting another individual in exercising the right of the individual to reproductive freedom with the voluntary consent of the individual. 6. As used in this section: (a) “Compelling state interest” means an interest which is limited exclusively to the State’s interest in protecting the health of an individual who is seeking reproductive health care that is consistent with accepted clinical standards of practice. (b) “Fetal viability” means the point in a pregnancy when, in the professional judgment of an attending provider of health care and based on the particular facts of the case, there is a significant likelihood of the sustained survival of the fetus outside the uterus without the application of extraordinary medical measures. (c) “Least restrictive means” means in a manner that restricts or infringes upon the autonomous decision-making of an individual to the slightest degree possible while furthering a compelling state interest. And be it further RESOLVED, That this resolution becomes effective upon passage.
