Oregon’s Democratic Governor Kate Brown has just issued a victory to all of the fans of murdering babies by signing a bill that demands abortions be “free.” Never mind that nothing in the world is actually free and this means that the cost is shifted to hardworking people who are already struggling enough in this economy.
The pro-life community in Oregon is predictably upset by this and not just because it will likely increase the number of abortions that take place in their state.
NARAL lauded the signing of the bill on Twitter…

… but Oregon’s Right to Life’s executive director Gayle Atteberry doesn’t view this as a win.
“Oregon taxpayers already cover nearly 50 percent of all abortions in the state whether they like it or not. By making abortion free, this percentage will inevitably increase. We also expect more late-term abortions, which are currently very expensive as well as risky to perform. All completely covered by either insurance companies or by the Oregon taxpayers.”
Naturally, Planned Parenthood had a hand in drawing up the legislation that Brown signed, making you wonder exactly how much influence they have in the governments of both individual states and the country as a whole. Why are companies allowed to have a hand in the creation of legislation that will financially benefit them? How is that even legal?
PP issued a statement on the passage of the bill:
“We are so grateful for the bold leadership of Gov. Brown and legislative champions who understand that Oregonians don’t want reproductive health care attacked Women, transgender and gender-nonconforming individuals, people of color, immigrants and people of faith are not going to silently stand around while politicians in Washington, D.C., try to take away our health care.”
Abortion is NOT healthcare. Getting a flu shot and antibiotics when you have strep throat is healthcare. How do you not know the difference between the two?
