The 138th consecutive Tuesdays With Tillis rally included speakers from NC National Organization of Women, NARAL Pro-Choice NC, Planned Parenthood South Atlantic, Action NC, and MomsRisingNC. Our emcee was a Tuesdays With Tillis organizer.
Join us on Tuesday, September 10, 2019, at 11:30am, to find out why Planned Parenthood had to pull out of the Title X program and what that means, and how this adds to the enormity of attacks on women via women’s reproductive health care access.
There is another whole area of wrongness in the state budget which is not getting much coverage – our taxpayer money going to fully anti-abortion and inappropriately religious clinics. The proposed state budget gives taxpayer money away to two main anti-abortion organizations, but also directly to many CPCs that are part of one of the anti-abortion organizations, the Carolina Pregnancy Care Fellowship (CPCF).
Abortion has been all over the news lately. Different types of abortion bans have become law recently in various states. Missouri is trying hard to shut down the last clinic in Missouri. In fact, in the midst of the fight between the state and the last clinic, Missouri just added a punitive regulation requiring women seeking a legal abortion in the state to undergo a mandatory, medically unnecessary, invasive pelvic examination. North Carolina has its own drama that played out with one of the abortion ban bills. Hear about all of this and why abortion is health care and women continue to need access to them and other aspects of reproductive care. Join us to support safe and legal abortion.
Media Advisory for the #StopTheBans rally in Chapel Hill on 5/21/19. Includes information on some of the bans and how clueless some of the lawmakers have been.
A slew of major anti-abortion bills are passing in states, with some being signed into law around the country. These laws are designed to oppress and control women. The goal is to overturn Roe v Wade, using the new makeup of the US Supreme Court with Kavanaugh and Gorsuch.
