Brown Says Access To Abortion Is Human Right

(Salem, OR)  --  Governor Kate Brown is blasting the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to allow a Texas law that bans nearly all abortions to go into effect.  Brown issued a statement on Twitter yesterday saying "reproductive health care and access to abortion is a human right."  She added that Oregon state law will continue to protect individuals' right to make their own reproductive choices and that she stands in solidarity with everyone working to protect those rights.  The Texas law bans abortions after six weeks, which is well before most women even know they're pregnant.  It also allows private citizens to sue anyone who helps a patient get an abortion.  The court was five to four in the decision, with Chief Justice John Roberts joining the three liberal justices in the dissent.
