Oregon House Approves Buehler’s Bill Expanding Contraceptive Access

Rep. Knute Buehler, R-Bend, championed a bill late in the 2015 session to allow women to get birth control directly from a pharmacy without a doctor’s prescription. HB 2527 expands the types of birth control available through this route to include self-administered injectable contraceptives.

The Oregon House passed a bill 48-4 on Thursday that expands the types of contraception that women may get directly from a pharmacist without a doctor’s prescription to include injectable contraceptives. It now heads to the Senate.
