Share Your Story!

Personal stories are critical when advocating to maintain or even expand access to the vital health services that Planned Parenthood provides. By sharing your story, you can play a significant role in the work we do.

Extremists are gathering signatures to qualify a dangerous constitutional amendment for the fall ballot. If passed, it would restrict access to safe, legal abortion for low-income Oregon women. If you have experienced difficulty in obtaining an abortion, we need to hear from you. This could include financial challenges, legal barriers, cultural stigmas or other factors.
