It’s not enough for extremists to harass patients and staff outside clinics.
Find out how regulations are used to harass them inside.
Learn how we can FIGHT BACK against those who seek to close clinics.
We need to maintain or improve access to safe and legal abortions.

Jan 22, 2015 marks the 42nd anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, which gave women control over their own bodies and lives. We can celebrate that as a national blessing – 42 years of legal, constitutionally protected abortion care in the United States.
But how many abortion clinics are left in NC? 15. Compare that to the 120 or so crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) in NC. CPCs are biased, anti-choice organizations which masquerade as real women’s clinics. Their overriding goal is dissuading women from having abortions, and many use scare tactics and even lies. NC needs to keep the real abortion clinics it has, and get more clinics in order to give more women safe and legal choices. Women in rural areas have the least access to clinics.
