With the confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, there is more danger than ever before that Roe v. Wade could be overturned or its application severely restricted. If federal protection for abortion rights is denied or diminished, the battle to defend women’s reproductive rights will shift to the states. Here in North Carolina, the forces for abortion rights have been historically strong, but in this political climate our voices must grow stronger and our support for a woman’s right to choose must become more visible. The pro-choice signature ad is one way to make your support for choice visible.
Show your support for access to safe and legal abortion NOW by joining in on the Pro-Choice Signature Ad (2019) and/or making a donation! NC NOW runs a pro-choice signature ad in the Indy Weekly (previously known as The Independent Weekly) every year. The ad runs in January, timed with the January 22 anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision (1/22/73) that gave women control over their bodies and lives. 2019 marks the 46th anniversary of Roe! The signature ad commemorates Roe v. Wade, and also raises money for NOW’s work in North Carolina.
Make your statement (I’m Pro-Choice Too!) by including your name in the ad and/or by making a donation to NC NOW.
Find the 2019 appeal letter at Pro-Choice Signature Ad Appeal 2019. Read it for more information or you can print and mail in with any donation. If you mail it in after January 11, please also email president at raleighnow.org or fill in your information online (below) to make sure we get your name in the ad. After Jan 13, we may be able to fit it, so email anyway.
Every year, we deliver pro-choice signature ad packets to every one of our NC Senate and House representatives. We do this after the legislative session starts, so the timing varies, usually we deliver in late winter or early spring (as the legislature alternates long and short sessions).
In 2019, we celebrate the 46th anniversary of the Roe v Wade decision. Watch for a Roe v. Wade event near you. Also there may be women’s march anniversary events around the state! We’ll keep you posted.
