Watch the ACLU of Nevada's Northern Coordinator Lee Rowland discuss the Personhood Initiative on Nevada Newsmakers with host Sam Shad and co-host Paul Enos. The first guest is Olaf Vacura with the Nevada Personhood Initiative. Lee Rowland then discusses the ACLU of Nevada's concerns with this initiative. If passed, this initiative could potentially ban all abortions, even in cases of rape or incest, and commonly used forms of birth control. In addition, it could interfere with doctors’ ability to treat life-threatening pregnancies, miscarriages, and infertility, and it could ban some stem sell research and other life-saving therapies and cures.

The ACLU of Nevada, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the ACLU’s national Reproductive Freedom Project, and the law firm Kaempfer Crowell filed a challenge to this initiative.
