Oregon families who experience hunger know what it’s like to make the tough, daily decision between food and other basic necessities. Our housing, childcare, medical and transportation costs are all increasing while our wages remain stagnant, and we are forced to make difficult decisions about where to make cuts in already too tight budgets. Oregonians experiencing hunger also know that elected leaders can make a remarkable difference in our daily lives.
New Mexico is one of nine states that still has an unconstitutional, pre-Roe v. Wade statute on the books that criminalizes abortion in almost all circumstances. If Roe v. Wade falls, this law could become enforceable again, making abortion a crime and jeopardizing access to safe and legal care in New Mexico. We must come together to repeal this outdated law.
We have created this guide to help you evaluate your healthcare needs, navigate your new insurance options, and choose the best plan for you and your family.
Our families make tough decisions every day — especially about healthcare. We trust Oregonians to make the right decision for themselves, whether that’s to become a parent or end a pregnancy.
Nuestras familias toman decisiones difíciles todos los días—especialmente acerca de los servicios de salud. Confiamos que las personas de Oregón toman la decisión correcta por sí mismas, ya sea convertirse en padres o interrumpir un embarazo.

This Strong Families media guide is intended to be used by a variety of traditional and new media outlets seeking to learn about or expand their knowledge of Reproductive Justice (RJ) in their writing. With the 42nd anniversary of Roe v. Wade in 2015, our first RJ In Focus looks at abortion, in part due to renewed state-level attacks on access to abortion, and increased coverage of reproductive rights in the media.
