Outraged by attempts at judicial takeover in NC and actual judicial takeover from the Trump administration? Do you know the Trump administration with a complicit Congress have ushered in/confirmed 29 conservative federal circuit court judges, 53 District Court nominees by October 17, 2018, and 2 hyper-conservative Supreme Court Justices? Abortion and birth control are more at risk now than ever before. Show your support for access to safe and legal abortion NOW by joining in on the Pro-Choice Signature Ad (2019) and/or making a donation! NC NOW runs a pro-choice signature ad in the Indy Weekly (previously known as The Independent Weekly) every year. The ad runs in January, timed with the January 22 anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision (1/22/73) that gave women control over their bodies and lives. 2019 marks the 46th anniversary of Roe! The signature ad commemorates Roe v. Wade, and also raises money for NOW’s work in North Carolina.
Make your statement (I’m Pro-Choice Too!) by including your name in the ad and/or by making a donation to NC NOW.
Find the 2019 appeal letter at Pro-choice Signature Ad Form (2019). Read it for more information or you can print and mail in with any donation. If you mail it in after January 11, please also email president at raleighnow.org or fill in your information online (below) to make sure we get your name in the ad. After Jan 13, we may be able to fit it, so email anyway.
Every year, we run the pro-choice signature ad in the Indy Weekly on or near the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, which gave women the right to control their own reproductive lives. North Carolina NOW takes over the entire centerfold of the Indy Week periodical. We print columns of names of North Carolinians who support women’s reproductive rights. The ad runs in Indy Week. In late winter or early spring, depending on when the NC Legislature is in session, we deliver pro-choice signature ad packets to every one of our NC Senate and House representatives.
In 2019, we celebrate the 46th anniversary of the Roe v Wade decision. Watch for a Roe v. Wade event near you. Also there may be women’s march anniversary events around the state! We’ll keep you posted.

Our signature ad appeal letters capture what happened with choice and sometimes with the NCGA, and sometimes with national organizations (like ALEC) that year.
Here are some past Pro-Choice Signature Ad letters. These letters cover years after North Carolina turned hostile toward women and reproductive rights. North Carolina had been a relatively progressive state before 2012.
