NARAL Pro-Choice Nevada Issues State Senate Endorsements

More than 38,000 members statewide to mobilize to keep pro-choice majority in Nevada State Senate

Las Vegas, Nev. — Today, NARAL Pro-Choice Nevada announced their slate of endorsed candidates running for Nevada State Senate in the 2018 cycle.

“More than 7 in 10 Nevadans are pro-choice and it’s critical that we elect representatives who believe in expanding and protecting reproductive freedom for all women,” said Caroline Mello Roberson, State Director of NARAL Pro-Choice Nevada. “ In 2016, NARAL Pro-Choice Nevada hit the ground running and helped elect pro-choice champions to the State Senate. As a result, the new pro-choice majority helped pass a record number of bills aimed at expanding access to reproductive health care during the 2017 legislative session. For the first time in nearly two decades we passed legislation to protect and expand access to affordable birth control and legislation that made workplaces more accomodating for pregnant women.  NARAL is committed to fighting alongside the following candidates to ensure they get elected in November to continue to protect the ability of all Nevada women to make their own reproductive health care decisions.”

NARAL works to guarantee that every woman has the right to make personal decisions regarding the full range of reproductive choices, including preventing unintended pregnancy, bearing healthy children, and choosing legal abortion. In recognition of its work defending our constitutional right to choose, Fortune Magazine described NARAL as “one of the top 10 advocacy groups in America.”
