According to the Population Institute’s 2012 Report Card on Reproductive Health and Rights, Nevada, my current home state, received a failing grade. That’s right, the state that depends upon women for its thriving tourist industry does nothing to care for those women while they are here.
Nevada was only one of nine states receiving the F in women’s health.
The most striking statistic:Nevada spent only $44,000 on family planning clinics for low income women in 2010. That equals about $0.08 per woman. Way to go Nevada!
