Nevada Gov Steve Sisolak Signs Executive Order Calling Killing Babies in Abortions a “Human Right”

Killing innocent human beings in abortions is a “human right,” according to a new executive order from Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak.

The pro-abortion Democrat governor issued the order Tuesday after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in a historic ruling. Its decision Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health says abortion is not a constitutional right, and states have the authority to make laws about the controversial issue. Since last week, 13 states have banned abortions and more are expected to do so in the weeks ahead.

Sisolak’s order, however, emphasized that killing unborn babies in abortions will remain legal in Nevada. The state allows abortions for any reason up to 24 weeks and later in limited circumstances.

“Reproductive health care is a basic human right. We are committed to ensuring safe access to abortions for women seeking refuge from the restrictive laws in their state,” Sisolak said in a statement.

His directive bans state agencies from using “time, money or other resources” to help pro-life states prosecute abortionists who break their laws.

KLAS 8 News Now reports more about the order:

Health care and other licensed professionals in Nevada must be protected by state boards and should not be disqualified or disciplined based on repercussions threatened under abortion laws in another state.

The governor’s office will decline any request received from another state to issue a warrant for the arrest or surrender of anyone charged with a criminal violation of abortion law.

Planned Parenthood Votes Nevada praised the governor in a statement, claiming his order will “further protect” abortions for women coming to Nevada from pro-life states.

Democrat governors in Oregon, Washington and California have taken similar actions to ban cooperation with authorities in pro-life states in the prosecution of abortionists, according to the Reno Gazette Journal.

In a historic ruling Friday, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe in the case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health and allowed states to protect unborn babies from abortion again.

“We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled. The Constitution does not prohibit the citizens of each State from regulating or prohibiting abortion. Roe and Casey arrogated that authority. We now overrule those decisions and return that authority to the people and their elected representatives,” Justice Samuel Alito wrote for the majority.

For nearly 50 years, Roe v. Wade forced states to legalize the killing of unborn babies for any reason up to viability and allowed states to legalize abortions without limits up to birth. The ruling made the United States one of only seven countries in the world that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks. As a result, more than 63 million unborn babies have been aborted.

Now, states are allowed to make their own laws regarding abortion again, and researchers estimate as many as 26 will protect unborn babies by banning or strictly limiting abortion now that Roe is overturned. These laws are expected to save hundreds of thousands of unborn babies from abortion every year.
