Albert Mohler: Oregon to Compel Its Citizens to Pay for Abortion

Oregon legislators earlier in the summer adopted legislation that will now make Oregon not only the state with the most liberal abortion laws in the nation, but also the only state that will now compel all of its citizens to pay for abortion.

As the editors of the National Review commented, “Once upon a time, Democrats wanted abortion to be ‘safe, legal, and rare.’ Today, that mantra is ‘unregulated, on demand, and’—in the state of Oregon—‘free.’”

ABC News indicated just how radical this law is saying, “The Oregon bill is unique . . . in that patients would have access to the procedure for virtually any reason, at any time, including sex-selective and late-term abortions.”

Now, that’s not a conservative website or a conservative politician or theological figure making this remark. It’s ABC News noting that the radical nature of this law comes down to the fact that taxpayers in Oregon are now going to be by this legislative decree not only complicit in abortion, but complicit in abortion for any reason.
