"I feel that the citizens have voted on it."

- Tisha Black, Attorney, said in the Nevada Newsmakers debate between herself and Sigal Chattah, two Republicans running for attorney general. Both said the Nevada law on abortion is clear, and Black said she is wary about commenting on opinions that have yet to be handed down by the U.S. Supreme Court. Chattah explains, "In Nevada, we know that a ballot question in 1990 made it very clear that the right to choose to terminate a pregnancy is embedded in our constitution. So really, the attorney general has no position or jurisdiction in that office."
