Dear supporter,

We’re taking back the narrative about Planned Parenthood and sexual and reproductive health and rights. Stand with us by sharing your story of what Planned Parenthood means to you. 

Your voice can make a difference. Whether it’s affordable birth control or the right to safe, legal abortion, tell us why you stand with Planned Parenthood. With politicians determined to strip away access to vital sexual and reproductive health care, it’s never been more important to show up and speak out. 

Your experience can help us lobby lawmakers, mobilize supporters, and educate communities across Oklahoma about why Planned Parenthood matters. 

Have you already shared your story? Then volunteer with our Health Center Advocacy Program and help empower others to become involved in the reproductive rights movement. Together, we can protect and advocate for the vital sexual and reproductive health care services Planned Parenthood provides. 

You can also show your support by participating in one or more of the following ways: 

  1. Attend an event below.

  2. Make a donation.

  3. Follow Planned Parenthood Great Plains Votes Oklahoma on Twitter.

  4. Schedule an appointment at a Planned Parenthood health center near you.

Center for Reproductive Rights Sues to Protect Free Speech of Oklahoma Physicians, Center for Reproductive Rights

"’Forcing doctors to lie to their patients violates their free speech and the sanctity of the doctor-patient relationship,’ said Nancy Northup, president and CEO of the Center for Reproductive Rights. ‘There is no medical evidence to support so-called "abortion reversal," and it's reckless to suggest otherwise. We cannot have patients making healthcare decisions based on false information.’”

Tulsa abortion provider appeals lower court ruling that bans standard method of abortion in Oklahoma, Tulsa World

“‘These two laws will devastate abortion access in Oklahoma,’ said Julie Rikelman, senior litigation director at the Center for Reproductive Rights in a written statement. ‘The type of ban we are challenging has never been upheld in court before because it prevents doctors from providing patients with the standard of care. Both of the laws are designed to limit abortion access for Oklahomans and are part of a national, coordinated strategy to push abortion out of reach.’”

Students for Reproductive Justice at OU aim to educate community, provide support, OU Daily 

“‘The broad mission of the group is to promote reproductive justice, which Hayes would define as promoting bodily autonomy and the ability to decide if, when, and how to have children. The core values of the group include inclusivity and intersectionality, as well as providing access to education and care. ‘We want to make sure we’re being aware of everyone’s needs and protecting their rights and their access to education and health care,’ Hayes said.”
