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.
