Something is wrong in Oregon. The Democrat legislators there are either incredibly stupid, wholly ignorant, or unflinchingly evil. The proof is in the two most recent pieces of legislation passing through their legislature.
On Monday, we reported that Oregon had passed a bill that would legally disarm law abiding citizens, in the name of “protecting them from themselves.” Ostensibly, Democrats argue that the law is intended to “save lives.”
Requires court to order respondent to surrender deadly weapons and concealed handgun license within 24 hours of service of initial order, and immediately upon service of continued or renewed order. Provides for law enforcement officer serving order to request immediate surrender of deadly weapons and concealed handgun license and authorizes law enforcement officer to take possession of surrendered items.
I say “ostensibly” because while these Democrats argue that they’re trying to save the lives of the suicidal, they were the same Democrats who passed the nation’s first “right to die” law legalizing suicide and allowing physicians to help people commit suicide. These are also the same Democrat politicians who have made Oregon the most pro-abortion state in the country by allowing abortion on demand, until the moment of birth! Now, these same “crusaders for life” are supporting even more extreme pro-baby murder laws and forcing their citizens to pay for all of their state’s abortions.
This week the Oregon legislature passed a bill, without the support of a single Republican legislator, that will FORCE every citizen of their state to play a role in the murder of thousands of children. To make matters worse, the state’s Democrats are cheering their embrace of fascism and genocide.
The Democrat bill will now require that every single health insurance plan sold in their state fully cover abortion on demand.
And from ABC News:
In some states such as New York, abortions are cost-free if they’re deemed medically necessary. The Oregon bill is unique, however, in that patients would have access to the procedure for virtually any reason, at any time, including sex-selective and late-term abortions.
The bill would also allocate almost $500,000 over the next two years to expand cost-free reproductive health coverage, including abortions, to immigrants who are otherwise ineligible under the Oregon Health Plan — the state’s Medicaid program that currently spends nearly $2 million a year to pay for roughly 3,500 abortions statewide.
Whatever is going on in Oregon, it sure doesn’t make any sense to me. Pretend you’re defending “life” with a bill that strips the rights of law abiding citizens, and then pretend you care about “rights” when you strip the right to life from your state’s most innocent humans.
What’s happening in Oregon has nothing to do with rights, or with defending life… and it has everything to do with the evil hypocrisy of the left.
