If SB 490 passes,
many Crisis Pregnancy Centers in Oregon
WILL SHUT DOWN.
The bill requires Crisis Pregnancy Centers
* to pay medical personnel who are now pro-bono.
Effect- Most centers cannot afford the cost. 1st Way in Eugene has several nurses, ultrasound techs and an M.D. Medical director we would have to pay.
* to post in a prominent location and in all advertising that they do not provide abortion or referrals to abortion.
Effect: Abortion-minded women will go immediately to Planned Parenthood instead of coming to us first to hear about other options. We will lose significant clientele and more abortions will occur as a result.
*to be under the supervision of a government regulatory agency.
Effect: We will face greater and greater restrictions on providing care.
Oregon already has the most liberal laws of any state regarding abortion and this bill
IS NOT MEETING MUCH OPPOSITION AT ALL.
We cannot afford to be complacent.
Lives are at stake.
