Governor Orders Mifepristone Purchase

(Salem, OR) -- Governor Kotek has taken action to make sure the state has a supply of the abortion drug mifepristone. A ruling by a Texas judge could stop sales of the drug. The U.S. Supreme Court is considering the ruling and placed a temporary injunction on it through tomorrow. Kotek directed Oregon Health and Science University to buy 22-thousand-500 doses, which is enough to meet the state's demand for three years. She also told the Oregon Health Authority and Department of Justice to explore all available ways to safeguard access to reproductive health care in Oregon.
