Reproductive Freedom for All Nevada Calls Out Gov. Lombardo’s Embrace of Abortion Ban
Reno, Nevada — In an interview published in the Nevada Independent, Republican Gov. Joe Lombardo noted his support for a state-wide abortion ban that flies in the face of the values of Nevadans. Polling shows that 4 in 5 voters in the state—one of the few places in the nation with a voter-affirmed right to abortion—want the government to stay out of decisions about abortion.
Reproductive Freedom for All Director of State Campaigns Caroline Mello Roberson released the following statement:
“Governor Lombardo’s embrace of a state-wide abortion ban shows exactly how out-of-touch he is with Nevadans. Despite the fact that a consensus of voters in our state support abortion rights, he is still willing to throw their values and well-being under the bus to advance an extremist agenda. Reproductive Freedom for All Nevada and our 48,000 members across the state won’t let that happen—and we’re more determined than ever to protect our fundamental rights.”
