About Our Initiative

The Protect Our Girls Statutory Initiative (S04-2020) is a proposal that will require doctors to inform one parent before a minor girl can receive an abortion. Abortion is the only medical procedure that a minor child can undergo without parental involvement in the state of Nevada.
The Protect Our Girls Initiative includes a judicial bypass to protect minors in those rare situations where the victim does not have a competent or loving parent or guardian. This important aspect ensures that all girls are protected from predators, abusers, and sex traffickers.
Nevada legislators have failed to fix this loophole for years—but fortunately, our state constitution allows us to act. If we can collect 100,000 signatures, we can force the legislature to remedy this problem or put it to a public vote.
Over 70% of Nevadans agree with this commonsense law and want their parental rights and responsibilities restored. Without this initiative, our daughters—no matter their age—can receive a secret abortion without their parents knowing.
31 states provide protection for girls and their parents. It is time for Nevada to join them. Planned Parenthood is fighting commonsense protections for young girls and their parents. It is time to stop them.
