NC NOW commemorated the 48th anniversary of Roe v. Wade in 2021 with a pro-choice signature ad that features an original portrait of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who had graced the Supreme Court for 27 years. The Notorious RBG, as she was affectionately known, passed away last fall, on September 18, 2020. Roe v. Wade is the Supreme Court of the United States (#SCOTUS) decision which made abortion legal in the United States.
On the Eve of the 48th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, please join us for a look. On Thursday, January 21, 2021 @ 7:00 p.m. we’ll reflect on how Roe v. Wade came to be, the twist and turns over the years, up to the latest actions by the Supreme Court of the United States.

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.
Looking at the obstruction and scheming in the US Senate with regard to legislation and judicial candidates, including Amy Coney Barrett.

A lawsuit filed by the Civil Liberties Union of North Carolina along with abortion providers and reproductive justice organizations is challenging five medically unnecessary restrictions on abortion passed over the years. The suit was filed in Wake County Superior Court. These restrictions have pushed abortion out of reach in N.C. and have stigmatized essential health care. The suit holds that the restrictions deny basic rights guaranteed under the North Carolina Constitution and disproportionately impact communities of color, especially Black communities, along with rural communities.
Incredible and surprising great news from the US Supreme Court (SCOTUS) on the June Medical Services v. Russo case from Louisiana. SCOTUS should not have even heard this case.
