The anti-choice ballot initiative put forward by Personhood Nevada will not be on the ballot this November. The measure did not receive enough signatures by the June 19 deadline to be included on the ballot. As of Friday, Personhood Nevada needed over 72,000 additional signatures to put the question to voters this fall.

The measure sought to amend the Nevada Constitution to define life as beginning at conception and could have interfered with personal medical decisions, including some fertility treatments, all abortions, and some forms of birth control. 

The ACLU of Nevada, the ACLU’s national Reproductive Freedom Project, and Planned Parenthood challenged other versions of this initiative in both 2009 and 2011.
