Protecting our reproductive health: Oregon leads
With all the SCOTUS rumbling the wrong direction, I am relieved we live in Oregon and fortuitously passed the Reproductive Health Equity Act, landmark action securing sovereignty over one’s own body.
From the Oregon Health Authority:
House Bill 3391, also known as the Reproductive Health Equity Act, is a bill that provides for expanded coverage for some Oregonians to access free reproductive health services, especially those who, in the past, may have not been eligible for coverage of these services. It also provides protections for the continuation of reproductive health services with no cost sharing, such as co-pays or payments toward deductibles, and prohibits discrimination in the provision of reproductive health services.
