The reproductive rights amendment petition that would enshrine abortion protections into the state constitution has gathered more than 200,000 signatures — nearly double the required number to qualify for the November ballot — the Nevadans for Reproductive Freedom PAC announced Monday. The ballot question would ask voters whether they want to amend the state constitution to include the right to an abortion up to 24 weeks. The proposed language also states that individuals or any health care provider “who acts consistent with the applicable scope and practice of providing reproductive health care services” cannot be penalized or prosecuted. If approved by the secretary of state’s office, the ballot measure will need to pass with a simple majority of the vote in November 2024 in order for it to appear again on the 2026 ballot; a second passage is required to amend the state constitution.
