Planned Parenthood Wants Nurse Practitioners to Perform Vasectomies

Washington state has utilized nurse practitioners for this procedure for about 20 years, but Oregon law prevents them from doing so on this side of the Columbia.

More men would be able to take one for the team and undergo a vasectomy if a bill backed by Planned Parenthood, allowing nurse practitioners to perform the procedure, becomes law.
