Nevada Abortion Laws and How They Differ From Neighboring States

By    |   Friday, 16 Oct 2015 05:41 PM

When it comes to laws regulating abortion in Nevada, the state typically sides more with its eastern neighbors than those farther west.

In Nevada, abortions are banned after 24 weeks, which is approximately the end of the second trimester. Exceptions to this rule include times when it becomes necessary to preserve the life or health of the mother.

Most of the states surrounding Nevada also prohibit abortions after 24 weeks, which is when the baby is viably able to survive outside the womb. The exception is Oregon, which permits late-term abortions.

Unlike California and Oregon, Nevada does require that abortions be done by licensed physicians. Idaho, Utah, and Arizona have similar regulations.

Unlike its eastern neighbors, Nevada does not have a period after counseling during which a woman must wait before having the procedure. California and Oregon do not have waiting periods either. Idaho and Arizona require women to wait at least 24 hours while Utah has a delay gap of 72 hours, according to the Guttmacher Institute.

When it comes to girls seeking an abortion who are under the age of 18, Nevada does not require any sort of parental involvement. The Nevada assembly, however, has been working to require parental notification of the procedure.

California and Oregon also do not require parental notice or consent. Utah requires both notification and consent of a parent; Idaho and Arizona require parental consent.

Public funding of abortions is only available in instances of rape, incest, or endangerment of the mother’s life in Nevada. Idaho, Utah, and Arizona have similar restrictions. California and Oregon do not.

Nevada does not require ultrasounds to be performed prior to the procedure. Arizona does necessitate this.
