Pro-Choice Oregon Foundation
Pro-Choice Oregon Foundation supports and protects, as a fundamental right and value, a person’s freedom to make personal decisions regarding the full range of reproductive choices—including preventing unintended pregnancy, bearing healthy children, and choosing legal abortion—through education, training, organizing and research. We champion public policies that address disparities in reproductive health care and promote health equity for all people.
Bottom Line for Portland
No matter the political changes in Oregon or across our nation, Pro-Choice Oregon will be here to defend and expand access to safe and legal abortions for everyone. We can no longer rely on the Supreme Court to protect our bodily autonomy or bank on Oregon’s historically-progressive ideals. We are charting a new course forward as a regionally-focused, community-centered organization, and will continue to ensure all communities and all people who can become pregnant have access to a full range of reproductive choices.
“We all watched in horror this year as an extremist Supreme Court struck down Roe and states across our nation enacted draconian abortion bans. But Pro-Choice Oregon did more than watch, they worked to make Oregon the first state to secure funding for those traveling from out of state to access abortion services. It has never been more important to maintain Oregon’s status as a leader in the reproductive movement or to support Pro-Choice Oregon.”
-Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Pro-Choice Oregon is committed to uplifting the voices of Black, Indigenous and other communities of color, poor people, LGBTQ2SIA+ people, and people with disabilities. We acknowledge the legacy of exclusionary policies that have failed to develop and support an inclusive mission, staff and board. It is our goal to elevate marginalized voices and lead with empathy and compassion while working towards a more equitable and just organization. We also aim to build a new generation of advocates that will amplify the voices and leadership of all people who can become pregnant.
