Bro, Choice! Men for Planned Parenthood

Bro, Choice! Men for Planned Parenthood

If you or someone you love is a man who's tired of seeing right-wing politicians attack access to reproductive health care, then this is the event for you!

Please join us Thursday, October 3rd in Portland at “Bro, Choice! Men for Planned Parenthood.” All genders are welcome!

PPAO knows that attacks on reproductive freedom affect the entire family. Planned Parenthood health centers help men take charge of their sexual health by offering STI testing and treatment, free or low-cost condoms, and sex education and information.

PPAO is also fighting for a world where men can play a more active role in family planning. In 2017, we supported legislation to expand access to vasectomy, one of the most effective permanent forms of birth control.

At this first-of-its-kind event, men and their friends can show their support for Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon. We'll have a photo booth, light refreshments, a no-host bar and remarks from speakers including State Representative and former PPAO Board Vice Chair Diego Hernandez.

We'll also screen the virtual-reality film Across the Line, which places viewers in the shoes of a patient who encounters protesters while entering a health center for a safe and legal abortion. By putting the audience in the shoes of someone who is trying to access abortion, virtual reality offers a new and immersive experience that can help people better understand what thousands of women face when they seek health care.

This is a great opportunity for men to stand up for reproductive freedom. See you October 3rd!

WHAT: Bro, Choice! Men for Planned Parenthood
WHEN: 7-9pm Thursday, October 3rd
WHERE: Mother's Velvet Lounge, 212 SW Harvey Milk St., Portland
COST: $10 available here

Today the Supreme Court, in a 5-4 decision in June Medical Services v. Russo, struck down the Louisiana law that imposed medically unnecessary restrictions on abortion providers. This case, and 16 others waiting one step away from SCOTUS, was a clear effort to eliminate access to abortion and overturn Roe v. Wade. We all braced for the decision and breathed a collective sigh of relief when the court affirmed access to abortion for the time being. We can all celebrate ...

Our Commitment to Black Lives Matter

One year ago to this day, Brittany Packnett-Cunningham delivered her keynote speech at the 2019 Courageous Voice Breakfast, which culminated in a tribute to her days leading protest in Ferguson, Missouri.
