As many as 750 people gathered in NE Portland today to show support for the mission of Planned Parenthood after the U.S. House of Representatives voted last week to cut off all federal funding for this national agency that provides a wide array of health care services.
The Portland Mercury and Street Roots have photos and coverage. Most if not all of Portland's television stations and other media outlets are also covering the story (additional links will be provided as they become available).
Below is video from part of the short rally that took place before supporters marched along Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. to demonstrate support. I was honored to briefly address the rally along with representatives from Planned Parenthood of the Columbia Willamette and Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon.
