Nevada Judge Blocks Embryonic Personhood Initiative
ACLU press release: Nevada Judge Blocks Second Dangerous Personhood Ballot Initiative:
LAS VEGAS - A Nevada state judge today declared invalid the second of two ballot initiatives designed to ban all abortions, including in cases of rape or incest, and other vital women's health services by granting legal protections to fertilized eggs, embryos and fetuses. The initiative, blocked by Judge James Wilson, Jr. of the First Judicial District Court, was found to be so vague and misleading that it could not be permitted to go to the voters under any circumstances. . . .
