A Major Victory for Choice in Oregon!


July 5, 2012

IMG_0347We have important news to share that will shape Oregon’s political landscape in this crucial election year: Today we learned that 2 dangerous anti-choice constitutional amendments have FAILED to qualify for the November ballot. As a result, Planned Parenthood PAC of Oregon can focus on a proactive agenda to secure a pro-women’s health majority in the Legislature, instead of defending ourselves from another set of attacks.

Together with our partners at the Pro-Choice Coalition of Oregon, we have been monitoring the signature-gathering process and building a campaign structure in the event of a ballot measure fight. At issue were 2 constitutional amendments that would have affected Oregon women’s access to reproductive health care:

Thankfully, Oregonians saw that these vague and confusing measures seriously threatened women’s health care. This is a major victory for choice – and a prime opportunity to keep our eyes on the prize. Planned Parenthood PAC of Oregon is already interviewing candidates, making endorsements and registering voters to ensure a strong turnout in November. By making a donation today, you can help us achieve these goals. (Remember, the Oregon State Political Tax Credit allows Oregonians to give $50 per person or $100 per couple to the PAC of their choice and receive this amount back at tax time.)
