This year, North Carolina NOW once again will sponsor a pro-choice signature ad to observe the anniversary of the Roe V Wade Supreme Court decision. As in previous years, the exact text of the ad will read:
"We, the undersigned, support a woman’s right to safe, legal, and accessible birth control and abortion. We condemn the acts of violence and intimidation directed at women and their health care providers. We agree that these rights extend to all women regardless of economic status, and, as taxpayers, affirm our support of the State Abortion Fund for indigent women."
The two page ad will run in the centerfold of the January 17 edition of the Independent, a weekly newspaper serving the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area. The ad commemorates Roe v. Wade, and also raises money for our lobbyist here in North Carolina. Not only is the ad visible to the triangle community and beyond, but the ad is distributed to every NC House Representative and NC Senator so it covers everyone that lives in N.C. The pro-choice community comes through loud and clear with this ad.
Won't you join us in taking a stand for women's reproductive rights by adding your name to the ad? For a $35 donation ($10 minimum donation) your name (and only your name - not your address or hometown) will be listed as a supporter of reproductive rights.
Showing your support for a women's right to choose is especially crucial.
Please fill out and return the form today, along with your contribution, and mail by January 5, 2007. You can use the basic form below or email email@example.com to ask for a form. If you do not want your name to appear in the ad, please indicate your wish on the form. Your extra donation can cover others that want to put their name in the ad. Please be as generous as you can.
