As Democrats seek to repair national image, party passes law in Oregon requiring insurers to cover abortion at no cost

The Washington Examiner reports:
Just as Democrats are kicking up their efforts to prove the party can be a comfortable home for centrist voters, leftists in Oregon passed a law making that pitch even more laughable than it already was.

The state legislature passed a bill last week that would require insurance companies offering plans in Oregon "to cover abortions and other reproductive services at no cost to the patient regardless of income, citizenship status or gender identity," as ABC News explained.

Note that the legislation also applies to noncitizens.

The bill is headed to the desk of Democratic Gov. Kate Brown, who's already tweeted her support with an enthusiastic, "yes! yes! yes!"

The ABC News report, which compared the law to those in other states, noted, "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."
Oregon promotes death by government: also known as democide.
