AG Ford Claims GOP Opponent ‘Wants To Imprison Women Who Seek Out An Abortion’

Sigal Chattah: ‘Settle down Pinocchio… stop lying’

In a lengthy Twitter rant delivered in response to the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe V. Wade, Nevada Attorney General Aaron Ford (D) claimed “shady” GOP opponent Sigal Chattah “has said she wants to prosecute and imprison women who seek out an abortion.”

Chattah was quick to respond:

Ford also acknowledged that Nevada is not a trigger state:

 

Although abortion is not constitutionally protected in the Silver State, it is protected by state statute. In 1990, Nevada voters approved Question 7 by 63.5 percent of the vote. With this vote, the Nevada Legislature may not in any way alter the law, unless it is first repealed by state voters in a direct vote.

The law allows for abortions up to 24 weeks and also requires that abortions be performed by licensed physicians. In situations where abortions take place after 24 weeks, the law states that the procedure must take place at a licensed hospital.
