REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS IN OREGON"Oregon state law expressly affirms an individuals’ right to choose an abortion without interference from the government.
"The Reproductive Health Equity Act, updated in 2017, allows for late-term abortions, requires private medical insurance and state Medicaid to cover an abortion, and codifies the right to gender-affirming care, among other protections. Ours is among the strongest reproductive choice policies in the nation. Because health access in Oregon is governed by laws enacted by its state Legislature, rather than by a court’s interpretation of the state constitution, a sudden change to those policies is unlikely.
"Oregonians have shown little interest in changing the state’s policies. Five ballot measures restricting abortion have been rejected by voters since 1986. In 2014, 63 percent of Oregon adults said they thought abortion should be legal in all or most cases, according to polling done by the Pew Research Center."
