BEND, OR -- Oregon Senator Ron Wyden met with leaders of Bend’s Planned Parenthood clinic, during a visit to Central Oregon, Saturday. He expressed concern over Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his position on reproductive health. "Are we going to turn back the clock to the days when the government made the healthcare choices for women?" He told supporters, "I’m going to do everything I can to make sure in the Senate there is zero tolerance for policies that roll back the rights of women to the healthcare they choose."
Wyden also believes if Kavanaugh is confirmed, the Affordable Care Act will be struck down. He says if that were to happen, it would put people with pre-existing conditions - like pregnancy, diabetes and high blood pressure - at risk of losing their health insurance.
