Tell Oregon Governor Kate Brown “NO” to forcing insurers to cover abortions!
The Oregon House and Senate have passed House Bill 3391, Reproductive Health Equity Act of 2017, which will require insurance companies to cover all abortions! This is an extremely radical measure – not even Cuomo’s New York requires insurance companies to cover all abortions.
In addition, the legislation would require the state to cover abortions for individuals without private insurance – costing the state an estimated 10 million dollars! This radical legislation must be stopped at the Governor’s desk!
Please sign this petition NOW to Governor Kate Brown demanding that she reject this drastic and far-reaching legislation!
Supporters of this bill claim that to be pro-woman you have to be pro-abortion. However, nothing could be further from the truth. Abortion isn’t about supporting women and giving women options – it’s about making life for some more convenient at the expense of millions of lives every year.
As a former abortion advocate, now pro-life supporter Frederica Mathewes-Green has eloquently written, “once abortion becomes available, it becomes the most attractive option for everyone around the pregnant woman. If she has an abortion, it’s like the pregnancy never existed. No one is inconvenienced. It doesn’t cause trouble for the father of the baby, or her boss, or the person in charge of her college scholarship. It won’t embarrass her mom and dad.”
“Abortion is like a funnel; it promises to solve all the problems at once.” But it doesn’t. And for the woman, it is utterly devastating.
We know that all abortions end at least one human life, and they often seriously damage the mother’s life, as well. As Christians and life-loving Americans, we must work constantly to change our culture—to both respect the value of the unborn, and to cultivate honor and support for pregnant mothers.
Life is precious, and it can often require sacrifice. We must work every day to convince our neighbors that that sacrifice is worth it. And we should stand up against abortion advocates that try to claim that all real women must support abortion. Wrong! Real women support the lives of all girls and boys in this country, whether in the womb or outside as infants, toddlers, or children.
Urge Governor Brown to reject this dangerous legislation, which does not merely allow abortions, but requires universal abortion coverage in our state! This radical disrespect for life and coercion of pro-life providers has no place in our State.
