Fight Over Florida “Choose Life” Plates Continues

A Florida National Organization for Women lawsuit challenging the Constitutionality of state license plates bearing the phrase “Choose Life” will finally see a courtroom in January of 2001. The lawsuit, filed in 1999, argues that “Choose Life” license plates convey a political message and are therefore unconstitutional because the state of Florida should not sponsor such messages. The phrase “Choose Life” also conveys a religious message, which infringes upon separation of church and state.
