Nevada Democratic Caucus

Protect Women’s Health Platform Plank

We envision a Nevada where people power our politics and the common good drives our public policy.

We believe in the fundamental right of self-determination and the constitutional right to
privacy for each individual to manage his or her reproductive and sexuality rights without government interference.

We believe women’s health must be protected against ideologically-driven policies that devalue women, such as:

    • defining fetal “personhood” at a woman’s expense or
    • removing or limiting access to the full range of health care from birth control to abortion care or
    • impeding medically accurate sexuality education for our youth.

Nevada Republican Caucus

Winning Women Voters Platform Plank

We envision a Nevada where people power our politics and the common good drives our public policy.

We believe all individuals have the right to make personal and private health care
decisions for themselves without government interference. There are deeply held beliefs on both sides of the abortion issue. Developing a platform that truly represents the party can best be done by focusing on the core Republican values and remaining neutral on the issue of abortion.

We oppose inclusion of the issue of abortion in the Republican platform.

Women make up over half of the American work force, and 98% of all American women will use birth control at some point in their lives. Access to reliable and affordable birth control is essential not only to keeping our economy growing, but also to keeping American women and their families healthy. Taking away access to birth control costs the party women’s votes.

We oppose policies that are harmful to women’s health including those that limit access to birth control.

We support leaving private medical decisions to women and their families and focusing on jumpstarting our economy.
