Purpose

Bring all your friends and come to the Rally for Reproductive Rights! Stand with us and tell Obama, "We decide when, and if, we procreate!"

The Obama administration recently overruled a decision by the FDA that would have allowed all girls of reproductive age to purchase Plan-B OneStep (the morning after pill) without a prescription. Even though FDA Administrator Margaret Hamburg said in a statement that the pill could be used safely by girls as young as 11, Kathleen Sebelius and the Health and Human Services Department, for the first time ever in history, publicly disregarded their own experts.

Put it on the shelf! Plan B One-Step should be made available on Oregon store shelves for all girls of reproductive age, NOW!

Many pharmacies are closed on evenings and weekends, even if the drugstores they operate in are still open; since Plan B is most effective if taken within 72 hours of having unprotected sex, such delays matter. The American Academy of Pediatrics found no legitimate reasons to continue requiring a prescription for the pill. According to the group, “it is estimated that appropriate use of emergency contraception could reduce the number of unintended pregnancies each year by half and thereby similarly reduce the abortion rate.” The experts agree, Plan B is safe for all. So bring all your friends with you (and a sign!) and together we can demand that our leaders allow Plan B to be put on Oregon store shelves, NOW!
