About the Initiative

Today, more than 4 in 10 abortions—approximately 4,000 each year—are fully paid for by Oregon taxpayers (see abortion funding facts). And while this initiative will by no means restrict a woman’s legal ability to choose abortion, what it will do is ensure that taxpayers who are morally or fiscally opposed to paying for abortions will no longer have to.
