    Oregon abortion law funds procedures for illegal immigrants

    Abortions for free? Time to move to Oregon. Effective immediately, all state insurers must pay for free abortions even if you aren't in the country legally. Nice.

    Oregon abortion law funds procedures for illegal immigrants

    Oregon has passed the nationís most progressive abortion bill, requiring state insurers to provide free abortions for all, including illegal immigrants.

    Gov. Kate Brown, a Democrat, signed the historic health bill Tuesday, after the Legislature approved it in July. It would require Oregon insurance companies to cover reproductive procedures, all on the taxpayers' dime.

    The $10.2 million bill takes effect immediately, allocating $500,000 for abortions for the estimated 22,873 women eligible under the Oregon health plan, the Washington Times reported. This will include abortions for immigrants who are otherwise ineligible under the stateís Medicaid program.

    Opponents argued that the bill will force people who morally object to abortions to assume some of the costs. They also predicted that lawsuits will quickly follow, arguing that the new law violates the Weldon Amendment, a 2004 congressional provision that prohibits Health and Human Services funds for states that discriminate against health care providers that refuse to cover abortions, the Washington Times further reported.

    As long as it is those who live in Oregon paying for it, so be it.
