Oregon provides a 3-year supply of the abortion pill mifepristone

Gov. Tina Kotek announced Thursday that she has ordered and secured a three-year supply of the abortion drug mifepristone for Oregon following a Texas federal judge’s ruling that revoked the government’s approval of the drug.

Kotek’s office said in a release that the state has partnered with Oregon Health & Science University to stockpile 22,500 doses of mifepristone to “ensure that reproductive health providers across the state maintain access and provide patients with safe and effective miscarriage management and Continue abortion care.

“Here in Oregon, I will ensure that patients can access the drugs they need and that providers can provide those drugs without unnecessary, political, and intimidation interference and intimidation,” Kotek said in the release. “To our providers, to patients who live in Oregon or have to come to our state for care, and to those who help people access the care they need, know that I have your back.”
