Fight for Reproductive Freedom in North Carolina

The US Supreme Court has overturned Roe v Wade, taking away your constitutional right to an abortion. You can still access abortion care in North Carolina for now, but this year’s elections for state supreme court and state legislature will decide what happens next. Anti-abortion politicians have promised to completely ban abortion in North Carolina as early as next year. But you can show up to stop them and protect your freedoms by voting this year. 

  • 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 and abortion access.
  • All 170 seats in the state legislature are on the ballot. If there are enough anti-abortion state legislators in the General Assembly, they can vote to ban abortion (just like our neighboring states are doing). .

Together we can make sure they do not get this power. Register to vote. Get informed.

Register to vote

The deadline to register to vote in the November 2022 election is October 14th. If you miss the deadline, you can same-day register during the early voting period.

Take the pledge

Our bodies are our own — if they are not, we cannot be truly free or equal. Anti-abortion lawmakers in North Carolina could strip all protections for your ability to have an abortion. We won't be silenced while our fundamental right to control our bodies is taken away.

I pledge to use my voice and vote in this year's election, because when our voices and votes come together — we have the create change in North Carolina.
