(Carson City, NV)  –  A pair of initiative petitions that would ban abortions in Nevada are facing legal challenges.  The groups hope to get enough signatures for the measures to land on next year’s general election ballot.  But the ACLU and Planned Parenthood claim the initiatives would also block procedures involving embryos and fertilized eggs.  A similar petition effort failed to survive a court challenge in 2010.
