Nevada Families for Freedom has been enabling constitution minded, conservative and pro-family men and women to participate in the process of self-government and public policy making. This work will help preserve individual liberty, respect for family integrity, public and private virtue, and private enterprise in the State of Nevada and in America.
Nevada Families' achievements prove that citizen-volunteers can make a difference in our local communities, in Carson City at the State Capitol and in Congress. We also work to elect candidates at every level and articulate pro-constitution, conservative and pro-family policies through the media.
Nevada Families has published the Nevada Families Voter Guide every general election since 1988. Nevada Families asks candidates the hard questions so that voters can be informed where candidates stand on critical issues. The Voter Guide also includes the voting records of state legislators on important issues.
We need your support! The leadership of Nevada Families for Freedom has represented Families, Taxpayers and the Unborn every Nevada Legislative Session since 1971. No other organization has provided this critical leadership so consistently. We operate solely on the free will gifts of those who wish to support our efforts year in and year out. Your contributions make our work for Life, Liberty and Family possible.

Our 36th Annual Pro-Life Ad
will be State Wide with Social Media advertising!
We can reach many more people this way especially young people who we are targeting.
Nevada Families for Freedom is an original partner sponsoring these annual Pro-Life ads. We started in 1986 with the Choose Life Coalition, including Nevada Right to Life, in this annual project to change hearts and minds. In 1986 we began by publishing our full page Pro-Life Ad with the list of sponsors’ names in the Reno Gazette Journal and continued that project for decades, expanding to include other newspapers statewide until recently. We transitioned to electronic billboards and now to social media. One advantage of using Social Media is that we can keep the ads up for a month or more getting 150,000 impressions. Although we are not able to include our sponsors’ names on the social media, we will list sponsors names on our website.
January 22, 1973 is the anniversary of the infamous Roe v Wade U.S. Supreme Court Decision which made abortion legal for all nine months. This catastrophe, as of 2020, has taken the lives of 62,502,904 innocent unborn babies, leading to the accelerating moral and social decline of America. One blessing is that since the advent of sonograms many more people know and understand that abortion takes the life of a real living baby.
The focus of the Pro-Life Ads will be three fold:
· The Pro-Life Ad will declare “2022 the Year of the Unborn” with pictures of unborn babies.
· The 49th Anniversary of Roe v Wade. Is it the last?
The U.S. Supreme Court recently heard the Dobbs vs Jackson case from Mississippi banning abortion after the 15th week of pregnancy. We don’t know what the Supreme Court will do. Pray for them. I have no faith in the SC after what they did in the Trump election cases and marriage.
However, possible outcomes of the Dobbs case include: that the 15 week ban in Mississippi will be upheld. Or the SC will dial back the “viability” standard in Roe. Justice Harry Blackmun allowed in his opinion for unrestricted abortion prior to “viability” — typically defined as the age at which a child can survive outside the womb (with 24 weeks as a longtime standard, despite the fact that children have since survived at 21 weeks).
Or the SC could overturn Roe v Wade and return abortion laws to the jurisdiction of the States where it was before Roe. In this scenario every state would create their own standards and laws regarding abortion. This would not affect Nevada because in 1990 Question 7 passed on the ballot locking pro-abortion laws into our state statutes which cannot be changed without a referendum by the people. A referendum requires signatures of 10% of the people who voted in the previous election some 140,000 and is extremely difficult and costly.
· Expose the pro-abortion Nevada State ERA Constitutional Amendment which be on the November 2022 ballot and will require Nevada taxpayers to pay for abortions and require professionals who object to performing abortions to perform them.
We have a goal to raise $6000 for social media ads.

SJR8* ERA Changes Everything!
Watch the short video:
Republican Senators Plan to Vote
For the Most Radical State ERA anywhere in the Country
If you are from Clark County make sure to contact New Senator Carrie Buck. She is not sure it’s worth it to vote NO.
Senator from Clark: Carrie Buck Please ask her to vote no on SJR8* the State ERA: 775-684-1457, Carrie.Buck@sen.state.nv.us,
The following Republican Senators voted Yes on SJR8, the State ERA, in 2019 and are planning to vote Yes in 2021. Their excuse was that they didn’t want to be perceived as anti-woman and be vulnerable in their campaigns. They were not worried about the future of our children, especially our girls, tax funded abortions or the devastating effects of the State ERA. They must hear from you!
MESSAGE: SJR8*, the State ERA, is not pro woman. It is anti-family, anti-woman and especially anti-girl. We want you to vote NO on SJR8*. Girls will have to compete with biological males in sports which will ruin their chances for success and scholarships. Girls’ safety and privacy will be at risk in school bathrooms, locker rooms, showers and in motel rooms on trips when transgender biological boys use those facilities. Taxpayers will also be harmed because they will have to pay for abortions. Our religious liberty will be in jeopardy if we believe in traditional marriage. We are concerned that age of consent laws that protect children from sexual predators could be overturned in the name of equality. Please Vote NO on SJR8*. (Or better yet share your own message.)
Republicans who voted YES on SJR8* ERA in 2019, CALL them.
From Churchill, Douglas, Lyon, Storey: (Senate Minority Leader)
James Settelmeyer, 775-684-1470 Cell: 775-450-6114 (send a text)
From Washoe County: Heidi Gansert, 775-684-1419

From Clark County: Keith Pickard, 775-684-1481
From Boulder City: Joe Hardy, 775-684-1462
Please THANK these 2 Senators for Voting NO on SJR8 the State ERA in 2019 and ask them to vote No again.
