PORTLAND, Ore. — The Democratic governor of Oregon held a signing ceremony on Monday to celebrate the enactment of a law that that requires insurance companies in the state to cover the murder of the unborn at no cost.
While Gov. Kate Brown already signed H.B. 3391, also known as the “Reproductive Health Equity Act,” into law on Aug. 15, a special event was held this week before members of the legislature and abortion advocacy groups to commemorate the bill.
“To lead productive and thriving lives, Oregonians must have the ability to control their bodies and make informed decisions about their health care,” she said in a statement. “I am proud to sign legislation that expands access to basic reproductive health services for all Oregonians regardless of where they live, where they come from, or how they identify as a person.”
