Abortions-rights supporters gathered at the Capitol Saturday afternoon to rally for increased abortion access in Nevada.
The protest was organized in response to a draft opinion from the U.S. Supreme court that was leaked at the beginning of May. The draft suggests that the court may overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade , which ruled that states may not regulate a woman’s decision to abort a pregnancy within the first trimester.
Nevada permits a woman's to have an abortion within the first 24 weeks of pregnancy, according to NRS 442.250. Ballot question 7 in 1990 codified the decision into state law after nearly two-thirds of the state's voters approved the measure.
The rally was organized by Bans Off Our Bodies.
