Although the AP reported on April 7 that AB405 – Parental Notification for Underage Girls Seeking an Abortion – would go to an interim study (dead for two years), heroic efforts led by Assemblyman Ira Hansen resurrected the bill. The Republican Assembly Caucus should be thanked for recognizing that the time has come for Nevada to protect teens, pre-teens and their parents.
A hearing will occur in the Assembly Judiciary Committee, Friday, April 10. All bills must be voted out of committee by midnight that very same day. This is a very quick turn around and it is imperative that all parents, grandparents and citizens who see the benefit of parental involvement in abortions sought by girls under the age of 18, call, email and/or visit the legislators listed below.
