Nevada Senate passes proposal to expand birth control access

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — The Nevada state Senate on Monday voted unanimously in favor of a proposal to allow pharmacists to provide patients birth control without authorization from a doctor or health care provider. The proposal next must be passed by the state Assembly and signed by Gov. Steve Sisolak before becoming law.  If it becomes law, it will expand the scope of services that pharmacists can provide to ensure people who cannot access doctor’s appointments can obtain hormonal contraceptives including pills, patches or rings directly from a pharmacy. Senate Majority Leader Nicole Cannizzaro, the Las Vegas Democrat sponsoring the proposal, called it critical for women's health.
