Chapel Hill NOW, Durham NOW, and Raleigh NOW (North Carolina) are collaborating on a Zoom event to commemorate the 48th anniversary of Roe v. Wade on January 27th. Our speakers are looking at the future of reproductive access if the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) should be able to overrule or otherwise undo the Roe v. Wade decision which gave women control over their own bodies. Speakers will talk about what NC law would revert to without Roe, and also how telemedicine is changing abortion health care.

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.
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.
