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.
The last two town hall events of the #SaveScotus/#SaveRoe across the state were the last week of August, 2018. Here is a summary of both, with pictures.
Events around the state starting 9/4/18, timed with the start of confirmation hearings of Judge Brett Kavanaugh for US Supreme Court. Kavanaugh is an extremist and would be devastating to all kinds of people and the environment. Link to action as well.
Op-ed on the further damage this US Supreme Court could do with another conservative justice on the current court. Includes suggestions on what you can do about it.

The Democratic Party has announced plans to back anti-choice candidates. This plan disrespects women’s health, welfare, safety and economic security!! Supporting anti-choice candidates throws women’s needs under the bus. Women are really angry, and leaving! One CNN article called it “Democrats’ disastrous mistake on abortion.” Please tell them and show them your outrage, rather than just disengaging. This plan hurts all women!

It’s been almost two months since the Women’s March drew a half million protesters to Washington, an estimated 30,000 people to a sister rally in downtown Raleigh, and people to 12 more marches around NC that same day. The question on everyone’s mind is – “What next?” Four organizers from the Women’s March on Raleigh answer that.
Trying to keep track of press coverage of the WMOR during and after the march. Attendance estimates are now up to 40,000 based on people studying and estimating based on pictures of the actual march. Thanks to Sarah Moncelle for putting this together at https://womensmarchonraleigh.org/press/.
