Bill removing ‘archaic’ restrictions on abortions passes Assembly

The Assembly on Tuesday approved legislation removing what supporters described as archaic restrictions on abortions in Nevada. The bill, SB179, sponsored by Democratic state Sen. Yvanna Cancela would repeal a requirement that physicians document a pregnant woman’s marital status. It would also remove a criminal penalty for anyone who causes an abortion without the advice of a physician.
