Pro-life advocates are gathering signatures for "Issue 25" which would end public funding for abortion through the Oregon Health Plan.  Jeff Jimerson, the Chief Petitioner for Issue 25, says this is not about banning abortion, but rather is to make sure that Oregonians who are against abortions, do not have to help finance abortion for other people.  "Most people in Oregon do not know that their tax dollars are currently being spent on about 3500 abortions every year that amounts to be about one third of abortions in the state are funded by taxpayers."  The goal is to gather 150,000 signatures, however to date the issue has only garnered 65,000, with 5,100 coming from Deschutes County.  Even if the issue is approved, abortions for cases of rape, incest and to save the life of the mother will still be eligible for federal funding.
