In states around the country, anti-choice legislators are trying to eliminate funding for family planning or block Planned Parenthood’s participation in public health programs. These bills place political ideology over basic health care, putting the lives of millions of women and families at risk.
In addition, 56 percent of the state bills regarding reproductive health introduced this year seek to restrict abortion access, up from 38 percent last year. In Oregon, extremists are working to put an anti-choice measure on the 2012 Oregon ballot to remove funding for abortion from low-income women.
Stand with Planned Parenthood and sign our petition today.
We have to send a message to Governor Kitzhaber and the Oregon Legislature that Oregonians will fight back any attempt to eliminate Planned Parenthood or comprehensive women’s health care in our state.
Our goal is to gather thousands of signatures to demonstrate that Oregon voters Stand with Planned Parenthood and support full access to women's health care.
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from Planned Parenthood.
I Stand with Planned Parenthood
Dear Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon, [Decision Maker],
I know and appreciate that Planned Parenthood provides family planning, birth control, and preventative care that allow Americans to live healthier lives.
Planned Parenthood gives millions of women and families the means to control their own reproductive health, from sex education to contraception to a woman's right to choose. I oppose any attempt to remove or cut funding in Oregon for Planned Parenthood or comprehensive reproductive health care.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
