Senate Race Watch: Nevada

Shelley Berkley.jpgWe're keeping a close eye on the Senate race in Nevada.

NARAL Pro-Choice America PAC-endorsed candidate Rep. Shelley Berkley is in a very tight race against anti-choice incumbent Sen. Dean Heller.

Rep. Berkley is a champion for women's reproductive health and privacy, and we're proud to stand with her in the upcoming election.

Rep. Berkley's opponent Sen. Dean Heller believes that politicians should make women's private health-care decisions for them.

  • Sen. Heller voted twice to defund Planned Parenthood.
  • He voted for a bill that would essentially eliminate insurance coverage of abortion in the new health-care system.
  • Sen. Heller also supported the Blunt amendment which, if passed and enacted into law, would have allowed corporations and insurance companies to refuse to cover birth control and other essential health benefits, including maternity care, HIV/AIDS treatment, and cancer screenings.

Sen. Heller's anti-choice policies are out of touch with the values of Nevada voters.

The Silver State needs a pro-choice leader who will protect women's freedom and privacy and oppose policies that gamble with women's health.

If you have friends in Nevada, make sure they vote for pro-choice Senate candidate Shelley Berkley on November 6.
