Guest Opinion: A vote for reproductive equity (Mail Tribune)

Rep. Pam Marsh provided this heartfelt guest opinion about her Saturday vote for the Reproductive Health Equity Act.

“It is time to double down on our efforts to provide Oregon women with access to reproductive services. House Bill 3391B will require insurance companies to provide reproductive health care, including abortion, without a co-pay or deductible. It will also allocate funding for women whose citizenship status prevents them from coverage on OHP or via private insurance. In short, HB 3391B ensures that cost alone will never keep a woman from receiving services, regardless of citizenship status, ability to pay or gender identity.”
