(Worthy News) - The Oregon legislature recently passed a bill that would force insurers to provide free abortions, with no religious exemptions. It would also increase the amount of national taxpayer funds that sponsor abortions for all Medicaid recipients, including noncitizens.
House Bill 3391 would require insurers to provide abortions at no cost to the patient, regardless of her citizenship status, gender, or income, without any religious exemptions. It would also require the state to pay an additional $500,000 in taxpayer-sponsored contraception and abortions for noncitizens under the state’s Medicaid program. [ Source: Federalist ]
