There is no constitutional right for a pregnant person to get an abortion. The federal Supreme Court made that clear in its June ruling, paving the way for roughly half the states in the country to either ban or greatly restrict abortion by state law.

Oregon is not one of those, having already liberalized its abortion laws in recent years. The kinds of services banned in other states could include the kinds of things Dr. Daniel Kahn does at the maternal fetal medicine clinic of Asante Health System, in Medford.
