A "Choose Life" license plate. Yes, indeed!
Officially sanctioned by the state government!

I like that it's on a Hummer; that way we know they mean explicitly "unborn human life" and not "all forms of life on the planet".

Augh, asswipes!!!

If Romney gets his way, these will be available here soon, too.

And, although in some indirect way I work for him, he can bite my shiny metal daisy!

I find it amazing that with the approximately three gazillion license plate designs available in Virginia this one hasn't reared its ugly head.

I'd get it and then get it personalized with something like

KILLEM

In the state's defense, having a third-party license plate does not mean that the government specifically endorses the agency. It rather sets up a way for an individual to donate money to an agency (in this case "Choose Life, Inc.") in exchange for a novelty tag.

Slate has a good article about it, talking about how it is a free speech issue, for the most part.

[Disclaimer: I am a libertarian, I am pro-choice, but I am pro-free speech above all else.]

Oh, and by the way - that is actually a Jeep Wrangler back end, not a Hummer. The point still remains, though.

That still seems evil to me, unless the state also provides a license plate to donate money to something like Planned Parenthood.

Oklahoma has those plates also. They, of course, don't offer a pro-choice plate.

I'd be willing to bet that Florida doesn't offer pro-choice plates, either.

I hate those plates. I wish they had "Choose Choice" plates.

You know, when I was in high school I had a "Choose Life" tshirt ... back then it meant "Don't commit suicide, choose to keep living" OR "Choose to make the most out of life, don't just drift through it day by day" (I remember a whole bunch of us debating which it meant during a lunchhour - not sure which side won.)

Weird how things morph over time ...

Ironic, considering this is the state that let that lady die about a month ago.

Well...they didn't let her die. She was basically already dead, her body just never got the message. They simply stopped artifically resusitating her.

And as I understand it, she wasn't exactly what you'd call a "lady" either.

If that's the scariest thing you saw in Florida... well, you got off easy.

Ew. Just... ew.

Then again, I should be getting used to seeing that kind of crap; I see plenty of it in my area. :/
