Nearly 100 Women's Health Advocates on the Capitol Steps on Monday

Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon, the statewide political voice for Planned Parenthood, will mobilize citizen lobbyists from across Oregon for "Planned Parenthood Day of Action" on Monday, April 6th in Salem. Between 12:30 and 1pm, more than 100 Oregonians will march to the Capitol to advocate for reproductive health care before meeting with their elected representatives.

The lobby visits are essential to educate politicians about legislation that will affect women's health care. In these tough economic times, more women than ever need access to essential health care services.

"Improved access to a full range of birth control services has resulted in a 40-year low in teen pregnancy and abortion rates. Advances in women's health have paved the way for women to be a driving force in our economy, and access to reproductive health care is directly related to women's ability to finish school and succeed professionally," said Laura Terrill Patten, executive director of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon. "Now is not the time to go backward."
