Pro-choice Signature Ad Appeal (2018). As the anniversary of the landmark Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision approaches, it is important for us to take a stand and make a public statement in support of the rights it protects. We invite you to join us in signing our annual pro-choice signature ad. The war against women’s reproductive rights has escalated to unprecedented heights. Numerous bills to restrict abortion rights or to outlaw it entirely have been introduced in Congress in 2017. See a few examples in the Pro-choice Signature Ad Appeal (2018).
NC NOW runs the Pro-choice Signature Ad every year in January to commemorate the Roe v. Wade decision that gave women the right to control their own reproductive choices. The pro-choice signature ad runs as the centerfold of Indy Week around the Roe anniversary (January 22), this year on January 24th, 2018.
After the 2018 legislative session begins, we deliver copies of the ad with a letter to all of our representatives in the NC Senate and House to make sure they see it, and so they are reminded that there are many pro-choice people in NC. You can join us in delivering the ads and/or putting the signature ad packets together in 2018.
A signature ad is effective because it demonstrates broad popular support for an issue. At the same time a signature ad tells those who want to undermine reproductive rights that there is strong and organized opposition to their position. We urge you to support choice and NC NOW by adding your name or by simply making a contribution if you do not want your name printed in the ad.
