“The most extreme abortion funding law in the nation to force taxpayers to pay against their will for other people’s late-term and sex-selective abortions.”
— Oregon state Senate Republican Minority Leader Ted Ferrioli
So much for freedom of religion, freedom of conscience, and the right to life. Oregon already had abortion on demand, now they’ve turned a terrifying new corner and soon they’ll be the Dr. Josef Mengele of American states.
This week the Oregon legislature passed a bill, without the support of a single Republican legislator, that will FORCE every citizen of their state to play a role in the murder of thousands of children. To make matters worse, the state’s Democrats are cheering their embrace of fascism and genocide.
The Democrat bill will now require that every single health insurance plan sold in their state fully cover abortion on demand. Abortion on demand means at any point in the pregnancy, for any reason the parent chooses including sex-selective abortion, or abortion at 39 weeks. It’s a truly horrifying bill and I cannot denounce it any more strongly than the words I used above. Oregon has truly become the new home to the Nazi eugenicists utopia.
To help cover the costs the state will set aside $10 Million in taxpayer dollars to fund the abortions, and this includes a large pool of cash from which illegal immigrants can fund their abortions as well. If Oregon has $10 Million to set aside for abortions, wouldn’t that money be better spent paying for medical care for the poor? This statute is truly insane and it unmasks the hypocrisy and evil that is at the core of the Leftist eugenics fantasies. Each year, leftists waste MILLIONS (perhaps Billions) in their efforts to murder as many unplanned babies as they can, when if they would just use that money to fund low-income healthcare… we wouldn’t need socialized medicine! But who cares about logic, leftists just want the right to murder babies.
In some states such as New York, abortions are cost-free if they’re deemed medically necessary. The Oregon bill is unique, however, in that patients would have access to the procedure for virtually any reason, at any time, including sex-selective and late-term abortions.
The bill would also allocate almost $500,000 over the next two years to expand cost-free reproductive health coverage, including abortions, to immigrants who are otherwise ineligible under the Oregon Health Plan — the state’s Medicaid program that currently spends nearly $2 million a year to pay for roughly 3,500 abortions statewide.
State Rep. Bill Post (R) argues that the law is unnecessary and burdensome because Oregon already pays for most abortions performed in the state. “This is already being done in Oregon…The total number of [abortion] procedures is now as of 2014 47,000…. Total cost [is] just over $22 million dollars.”
Post has been an outspoken opponent of the bill and he had hoped they would triumph, but they failed. Earlier this week he gave a tearful speech apologizing for the GOP’s failure, and begging the state’s conservatives to become more active.
Oregon Right to Life Director Gayle Atteberry was heartbroken at the legislatures decision, “This bill is wrong on so many levels. Fundamentally, HB 3391 is morally reprehensible because it will take the lives of even more innocent Oregonians. Sadly, even the barbaric practice of late-term abortion will increase as abortion is legal in Oregon through all 9 months. This is not to mention that many Oregonians are opposed to the use of their tax dollars to fund abortion.”
All that is left is for the state’s liberal Governor, Kate Brown (D-OR), to sign the bill into law and every Oregonian will then have their hands stained in the blood of their children.
If you’re hoping that Brown will vote against the bill, don’t hold your breath because she’s already been seen cheering it on.

Lila Rose, the President and Founder of Live Action Network, found the bill and Brown’s display of glee disgusting.

Guy Benson of Townhall.com ripped the bill, and the abortion supporters who defend, it to shreds. Benson also points out that the media has been silent as this radical bill has been pushed through the Oregon legislature, which is odd, considering how vocal the media gets when conservative bills move through their state Houses.
It’s difficult to imagine anything more extreme, aside from compulsory abortions. It’s horrifying. Every single Oregon Senate Democrat voted in favor of this monstrosity, with every Republican opposed. The House vote was also almost exclusively along party lines. Governor Brown giddily vowed to sign the legislation, calling opposition to tax-funded late-term abortion “an attack on all Oregonians.” Orwellian.
Oregon has passed a truly radical new abortion law. It's a monstrosity and an affront to human rights.https://t.co/MEZ2lUuBbT

We live in troubled times, and while so much good is happening around us, Oregon exists to remind us that there is real evil in this world. Real evil that is not just “out there” with groups like ISIS, and Al Qaeda, but it’s here at home too with agencies like Planned Parenthood and the Democrat Party of Oregon.
I don’t use the word evil lightly, folks. I don’t think it should be used for political disagreements like tax increases, and healthcare bills… but when we see a group of people so hell bent on murdering innocent children, we have to call it like it is. Abortion is evil, and the legislators who voted for this abomination are evil as well.
