North Carolinians for Personal Freedom

States Are Passing Extreme Abortion Bans.

The U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decision to overturn Roe v. Wade ended federal abortion protections and turned decisions over privacy and reproductive rights to state legislatures and state courts. States across the nation are now implementing extreme bans on abortions, forcing women to give birth — even if they have been raped or something has gone tragically wrong with their pregnancy. Even worse, the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision goes beyond abortion. It is based on the belief we have no constitutional right to privacy, and state governments can interfere in our most intimate personal decisions. This could open the door to restricting contraception and banning same-sex marriages as well.

You Can Protect Your Freedoms

Right now, abortion remains legal in North Carolina. However, in this year’s election, the North Carolina Supreme Court and North Carolina legislature could gain the power to implement an extreme ban on abortions. Your vote this year will determine the fate of your personal freedoms, including access to legal abortion.

  • There are two state Supreme Court seats on the ballot. The justices elected to these seats will be the last line of defense against attacks on personal freedom.
  • All 170 seats in the state legislature are on the ballot. If there are enough anti-choice state legislators, they can vote to ban abortion (just like our neighboring states are doing).

In North Carolina, you have the power to protect your rights this election by voting in the elections for state Supreme Court and state legislature. The last day to register to vote is October 14. If you miss this deadline, you can register during in-person early voting, from October 20 – November 5. Election Day is November 8.
