EMERGENCY CONTRACEPTION (EC) FOR SEXUAL-ASSAULT SURVIVORS
Oregon law ensures that sexual-assault survivors receive access to emergency contraception (EC) in hospital emergency rooms. As part of the minimum standards for the examination and treatment of a sexual-assault survivor, a physician or other health-care provider must provide a woman with medically and factually accurate written and oral information about EC, offer her EC, and provide EC upon request.
Or. Rev. Stat. § 435.252-.256 (Enacted 2007).
Oregon law establishes the Sexual Assault Victims' Emergency Medical Response Fund. The fund pays for sexual-assault survivors' medical assessments, which include the offering and provision of EC upon request.
Or. Rev. Stat. § 147.005 (Enacted 2003); Or. Admin. R. § 137-084-0001, -0010, -0020.
