Last week, the Oregon state legislature passed a bill that forces taxpayers to pay for the abortions of not only Oregon residents, but illegal aliens as well. As the article below points out, there are zero restrictions on abortions in Oregon. The Oregon state legislature has gone too far.

A bill headed to Oregon Gov. Kate Brown’s desk would force health insurers and taxpayers to pay for free abortions for residents and illegal immigrants.
The radical pro-abortion bill passed the state Senate on Wednesday on a party-line vote, the AP reports. The state House pushed through the bill earlier this week.
