Press Release: City Club Lunch Reviews Measure On On Abortion

If Oregonians pass Measure 106, hundreds of thousands of women will be unable to afford abortion. On October 26th, the City Club of Portland wants you to know why it opposes Measure 106 and why you should oppose it, too. Three dynamic speakers explain the impact of this loss of reproductive rights: Kalpana Krishnamurthy, Policy Director of Forward Together, reviews the struggle to keep Oregon #1 in women’s rights in the nation. Dr. Sharon Meieran, Multnomah County Commissioner, explains how Measure 106 discriminates against women in poverty, in communities of color, and in rural Oregon. And special guest, Jeffrey Hons, President of South Texas Planned Parenthood, describes what Oregon will look like if it follows the path of removing reproductive rights for women.
