Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon is an independent, non-partisan, not-for-profit organization formed as the political arm of Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon engages in educational and electoral activity including public education campaigns, grassroots organizing, and legislative advocacy.
In 2002, we formed Planned Parenthood PAC of Oregon, which is a statewide, non-partisan political action committee that supports pro-choice, pro-family planning candidates for office.
Candidates often do not give voters the information they need to make important election decisions and many anti-choice candidates try to hide their true agenda until after the election. To combat this, our political arm seeks to provide accurate information about candidates to voters.
Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon is incorporated under Section 501c(4) of the Internal Revenue Code. Therefore, contributions are not tax deductible. This site is paid for by Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon and Planned Parenthood PAC of Oregon and is not authorized by any candidate or candidate committee.
Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon is the statewide political voice for Planned Parenthood’s two affiliates in Oregon and for women’s health care. PPAO defends the Planned Parenthood mission by advocating for public policy that will enhance and protect women’s health; by building support and accountability among our elected officials in Oregon; and by engaging and motivating the public.
Planned Parenthood PAC of Oregon supports state and local candidates who have taken responsible positions on women’s health care, including birth control and abortion.
