Oregon, a state with some of the most liberal abortion laws in the United States (you can abort your baby if you wanted a son and the child you’re pregnant with is a girl) has gone one step further: Free abortions.
That’s right, with the exception of Providence, a catholic insurance company, every other insurance company in the state will be required to provide abortion coverage and provide it at no cost. Not surprisingly, Planned Parenthood helped write the legislation. There business has been suffering over the past couple of years because the abortion rate in Oregon has been declining. So what do you do if you want to increase demand for your product? Offer it for free! Planned Parenthood is probably putting together the infomercials as we speak.
