Sad News: Oregon Senate Passes Free Abortion Bill

On Wednesday, the Oregon state Senate passed House Bill 3391 – a $10 million reproductive healthcare bill that forces insurance companies in the state to provide abortions at no cost to patients

The legislation sailed through the state House by a vote of 33-23 and passed the state senate 17-13, all along party lines. No Republican lawmaker supports the bill, but the GOP is unable to block its passage when Democrats control all the levers of power in the state. They attempted to move the bill back to committee to remove the abortion language, but failed. Gov. Kate Brown, a former abortion lobbyist herself, is expected to sign.
