Oregon has been closely following many of the liberal policies of their southern neighbor – California. Like California, Oregon has a law that automatically registers a person to vote if they obtain or renew a valid state driver’s license, regardless of citizenship. This opens the door for every illegal alien of voting age to cast illegal votes. There have been some allegations that up to 3 million or more illegal votes were cast by non-citizens.
Oregon was also the first state to make doctor assisted suicide legal. They also protect the claimed rights of LGBT individuals along with the claimed rights of illegal aliens, both to the detriment and trampling on the rights of normal American and Oregon citizens.
However, in a surprise move, Oregon decided NOT to give gender confused individuals the ability to select neutral as the gender of choice on their driver’s license.
Yet, liberal Democrats controlling the state government passed a bill in both the House and Senate that would force every Oregon taxpayer responsible for funding abortions and contraception drug and devices for everyone. It doesn’t matter if any of these things go against a person’s religious faith or not, they would have to pay for anyone in the state to murder their unborn child.
House Bill 3391, states:
“Requires health benefit plan coverage of specified health care services, drugs, devices, products and procedures related to reproductive health. Allows exemption for plans sold to religious employers.”
“Requires Oregon Health Authority to implement program to reimburse costs of services, drugs, devices, products and procedures related to reproductive health provided to individuals who can become pregnant and who would be eligible for medical assistance if not for certain federal requirements.”
“Prohibits discrimination in provision of health care coverage.”
“Prohibits interference by public body in consenting female’s choice to terminate pregnancy. Prohibits public body’s interference with health care provider terminating or assisting in termination of pregnancy of health care provider’s patient, if health care provider is acting within scope of provider’s license.”
“Declares emergency, effective on passage.”
House Bill 3391 is called the Reproductive Health Equity Act, but there is nothing equitable about it.
To begin with, the bill will put taxpayers on the hook for at least $10.2 million, and although not defined, that’s probably the minimum annual cost that taxpayers will be forced to pay.
Secondly, the bill will also provide all of these services to illegal aliens as well as US citizens and state residents. Why should law abiding American citizens pay their hard-earned dollars for anyone who has NO right to even be in this country to murder their child? The only right every illegal alien has is the right to be arrested and deported back to their own country.
Oregon Gov. Kate Brown, an openly bi-sexual liberal Democrat, has indicated that she will most likely sign the bill into law. With the bill’s emergency declaration, it would go into effect the moment it is signed into law.
According to the Huffington Post:
“Oregon will become the first to codify abortion coverage at no cost in a state statute, though California already requires all insurance policies in its small group and individual markets to cover abortion. Massachusetts specifies that insurers must cover abortions that are medically necessary, while New York has tried to nudge insurers into covering the procedure by adding it to its model plan of what they should cover.”
“On the other end of the spectrum, the ACLU says that 11 states prohibit insurers from including abortion coverage in their policies, except in cases of rape, incest or when a woman’s life is in danger.”
Oregon’s Christians need to file lawsuits challenging the constitutionality of this bill, on the grounds that it violates their First Amendment rights of freedom of religion. It’s time America’s Christians stand up to the liberal onslaught and persecution they have been facing at the hands of liberal Democrats.
