Skip to comments.Antiabortion message for specialty (license) plate (in MA)

Massachusetts, a state known for its liberal political climate, is about to offer motorists specialty license plates that express opposition to abortion rights.
The new Choose Life plate, which features an illustration of a woman cradling an infant, becomes one of 18 Massachusetts tags that provide publicity and funding for causes, including breast cancer research, youth hockey, and environmental preservation. They cost drivers $90 every two years.
After the state recoups the cost of producing the Choose Life plates, the proceeds will go to organizations that encourage women with unwanted pregnancies to consider options other than abortion, such as adoption.
Massachusetts is only the second New England state, after Connecticut, to offer the Choose Life plates.
First offered by Florida a decade ago and now available in about two dozen states, the plates are coming to Massachusetts because of an often lonely campaign begun in 2003 by Merry Nordeen, 47, a secretary at St. Joseph Parish in Wakefield.
I prayed really hard for this I prayed for seven years, and God didnt disappoint me, she said in a phone interview.
Her goals, she said, are to raise money for groups that counsel women with unplanned pregnancies to consider adoption, or provide financial support to help the woman raise her child if money is tight, as well as to give people a way to spread the message about life and . . . to get that message to the people who need to see it.
Some abortion-rights groups have criticized the plates. But legislative approval is not required in Massachusetts to create specialty tags.

good news ping!
Wow! In Massachusetts yet! Fantastic!
Now the abortionists will be clammoring for “Choose Death” plates!
To them, the suggestion that one choice is better than the other is "opposition to abortion rights". They think that not only do they have the right to kill their unborn children, and in some cases kill their newborn but unwanted children, but also that they have the right to do so without ever hearing that some of us find the murder of children repulsive.
Then I agree with 2harddrive. Let them have their “choose abortion” plates. The reason they object to this is because they don’t want the issue discussed openly in the public square. The longer they can hide their “choice” behind abortion clinic doors, the more it doesn’t seem so bad.
