‘Choose Life’ License Plate Permitted

State officials in Florida have okayed production of “Choose Life” license plates just one day after delaying the plate. The Florida National Organization for Women filed a lawsuit against the plate and the attorney general halted production, predicting that the design would be defeated in court.

Supporters of the plate, which portrays a crayon sketch of two children, say that its pro-adoption rather than pro-choice. The $22 proceeds are intended for groups that help women put their babies up for adoption.

NOW and other critics of the anti-choice license plate have pointed out that “Choose Life” is a political slogan for the anti-choice movement and is dangerous in a state where doctors who provide abortions have been murdered.
