Informed Consent

Nevada has an abortion-specific informed-consent law.

A woman may not obtain abortion care until after the physician or another qualified person informs her of the number of weeks that have elapsed from the probable time of conception, describes the procedure to be used and its consequences, and explains the physical and emotional implications of choosing abortion. Nev. Rev. Stat. Ann. §§ 442.252, .253 (Enacted 1981; Last Amended 1985).

A court held that the provision requiring explanation of the physical and emotional implications of abortion was constitutional. Glick v. McKay, 616 F. Supp. 322 (D. Nev. 1985).
