PRO-CHOICE COALITION OF OREGON PRESS RELEASE
SALEM, Ore., April 14, 2017 - The Oregon House Healthcare Committee today passed landmark legislation to ensure reproductive health equity across the state.
The Reproductive Health Equity Act (House Bill 3391) removes financial barriers and ensures that every Oregonian is empowered to make their own decisions about whether and when to become a parent.

Every woman in Oregon should be able to make decisions about whether and when to be a parent based on what’s best for her.
Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon is working hard to ensure that health insurance — whether paid for by individuals, employers or government funds — covers the full range of reproductive health services: preconception care, contraception, abortion, prenatal care, childbirth and postpartum care.
