The Pacific Green Party Reaffirms and Supports Women's Rights

With some Democrats rethinking their position on abortion and a woman's right to choose, Greens and the PGP here in Oregon steadfastly affirm their support for women and the sovereignty over their bodies.
The Pacific Green Party of Oregon firmly supports a woman's right to privacy, including the right to use contraception and the right to choose to have an abortion. In addition, members of the Pacific Green Party believe that a woman's reproductive choices are a private matter to be decided by her and her health care provider, free from state and federal interference.

Members of the Pacific Green Party believe that a woman's reproductive rights are fundamental to a healthy society. These rights are not political bargaining chips to be played in order to improve a political party's position in the opinion polls or to appease religious fundamentalists.

The Pacific Green Party always has worked, and always will work, to protect a woman's right to privacy and reproductive choice.
