Ban. Is “pro-life” except for “health of the mother, sexual assault, and incest.” But says “There’s nothing that I could really do” to change existing Nevada law allowing abortion up to 24 weeks, beyond bringing a ballot initiative “and hopefully people vote the position I feel.” Would repeal Sisolak order providing legal protection to out-of-state abortion patients, a stance he later softened on.
Legal. Would “continue protecting access to abortion.” After Roe v Wade was overturned, signed an executive order keeping information private for out-of-state patients who come from states where abortion is banned, to protect them from legal risk. Says if re-elected would seek to codify the order into law.
