About Us

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.

Our Mission

Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon is the statewide political voice for Planned Parenthood’s two Oregon affiliates and for reproductive health care. PPAO defends the Planned Parenthood mission by advocating for public policy that will enhance and protect reproductive health care; by building support and accountability among elected officials in Oregon; and by engaging and motivating the public.

Planned Parenthood PAC of Oregon supports state and local candidates who consistently take responsible positions on reproductive health care, including abortion, birth control and sex education.

Planned Parenthood Leaders in Oregon Condemn Kavanaugh Confirmation

Just now, the Senate voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of the United States. By doing so, senators ignored the outpouring of opposition to Kavanaugh’s nomination, evidence that he would gut Roe v. Wade if confirmed, allegations of sexual assault, questions about the honesty of his answers to questions under oath and serious concerns about his ability to be impartial and unbiased on the highest court of the land.

Today’s vote followed misleading and deeply ...
