Oregon becomes first state to offer free abortions for all, including undocumented immigrants

Oregon becomes first state to offer free abortions for all, including undocumented immigrants | 16 Aug 2017 | Oregon Gov. Kate Brown has signed a landmark bill to provide free abortions for all, including undocumented immigrants, by requiring insurance companies to cover the procedures and putting taxpayers on the hook for the tab.
