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.
