This week, the Supreme Court began hearing oral arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization — a pivotal case that could unravel the constitutional right to abortion guaranteed by Roe v. Wade.
Despite the fact that Nevadans voted 2-1 in 1990 to protect access to abortion from interference by politicians, GOP candidates across the Silver State are working overtime to roll back women’s reproductive freedoms.
Now, as SCOTUS weighs the fate of Roe v. Wade, here’s what Nevadans need to know about where the GOP field stands on women’s reproductive rights and health care:
In NV-03, GOP candidate April Becker wants to end access to abortion and proudly accepted the endorsement of Adam Laxalt – who spent his entire career as attorney general working to roll back women’s reproductive rights.
Another NV-03 GOP candidate, John Kovacs, proudly backs the restrictive Mississippi abortion ban and believes that other states should be able to follow suit.
In NV-04, Sam Peters is once again running on his record of restricting women’s access to reproductive care. He has pledged that if he gets to Congress, he will introduce legislation to make it harder for women to access safe, legal abortions.
DCCC Spokesperson Johanna Warshaw:
“As the Supreme Court begins to hear oral arguments on a case that could decide the fate of Roe v. Wade, Nevadans are once again reminded that Republicans are running on a record of opposing women’s constitutional right to make their own health care decisions. Make no mistake — the GOP field is completely out-of-step with Nevadans and a threat to health care access for women across the country.”
