My Health, My Story: A Planned Parenthood Speakout!

My Health, My Story: A Planned Parenthood Speakout!

Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon is fighting to reduce shame and stigma, to empower, to inspire and to change the conversation around the fight for reproductive health. We are speaking out because we cannot afford to go back.

Local community members will talk about why access to safe, legal abortion is important to them. By raising our voices, we can help protect reproductive freedom at the ballot box in 2018. Extremists are gathering signatures for a dangerous ballot measure that would amend the Oregon Constitution to restrict public funding of abortion. Together, we can ensure that all Oregonians are able to decide whether and when to become a parent — no matter how much money they make or how they are insured.

Please gather your friends for this exciting speakout.
