‘Reproductive Health Equity Act’ passes House Healthcare Committee

Salem, Ore. — An Oregon House bill designed to maintain, and even grow access to reproductive healthcare has passed in a subcommittee.

The Reproductive Health Equity Act, or House Bill 3391, will now enter the legislative process, after being passed by the Healthcare Committee on Friday morning. HB 3391 is based on services provided by the Affordable Care Act, including abortion, and no co-payments for birth control.

HB 3391 now moves on to the Joint Ways & Means Committee.
