On Tuesday Oregon Governor Kate Brown signed House Bill 3391 into law. HB 3391 solidifies Oregon’s unfortunate status as the most radically pro-abortion state in America. Abortions must now be covered 100 percent by all insurance policies, without a copay or deductible.

HB 3391 also establishes a $10 million fund for illegal immigrants’ reproductive “care,” of which $500 thousand is estimated to be spent covering abortions.

Unfortunately, abortion-supporting legislators included an emergency clause in the bill preventing it from being sent before voters. However, work is already taking place with lawyers on a legal challenge to the bill. As this effort develops will keep you up-to-date.
