Attorney General Ford Releases Statement on Texas Abortion Law

Sept. 1, 2021

Carson City, NV – Today, Nevada Attorney General Aaron D. Ford issued the following statement on Texas’ restrictive abortion law that went into effect early Wednesday.

“Texas has directly attacked the constitutional reproductive rights of its residents, who must be allowed to access safe and legal abortions,” said AG Ford. “Our office will not sit on the sidelines as these shameful and radical attacks on necessary healthcare continue.”

“I want to assure Nevadans that this law will have no effect on their rights. Our state first enacted pro-choice statutes in 1973, and those have been updated and expanded in the decades since. Our office will protect the Constitution, and we will protect the rights and bodily autonomy of our citizens. We are working with several of our colleagues around the country to determine the next best steps.”
