On May 2, 2022, Politico released a copy of the leaked ruling, which will overturn outright both the Roe v. Wade and Casey v. Planned Parenthood decisions protecting the right to abortion, and that a woman doesn’t need spousal permission to get one. The North Carolina Chapter of the National Organization for Women (NC NOW) denounces this new ruling in the strongest possible terms. To say this is a disaster for American women, especially women of color, low-income and rural women, is an understatement. Women and allies know for certain that we cannot depend on the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) anymore to protect what have been women’s constitutional rights for almost 50 years! For right now, abortion is still legal in North Carolina. However, this terrible decision will reverberate until Congress codifies a woman’s right to control her own body. Still there are things we can do.
Chapel Hill NOW President Gerrie Richards wrote this tribute to Roe v. Wade lawyer Sarah Weddington. Gerrie read this at our Roe event on Jan 27 2022.

As Chapel Hill NOW President, Gerrie Richards, said during the event, “We’ve heard a lot of talk all around in the news media about the end of Roe, but our future is not prescribed. What we do can affect what happens in the future.”

Women’s reproductive health is at the greatest risk EVER since Roe v. Wade was decided, 49 years ago. First, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) did not stop the clearly unconstitutional Texas law, SB8, from going into effect. The 6 week abortion ban instituted by SB8 allows anyone to file a $10,000 lawsuitContinue reading “SCOTUS Threatens Women’s Rights – 2022”
