RALEIGH, N.C. – A federal judge has ruled it is unconstitutional for North Carolina to issue pro-life license plates unless the state offers similar plates supporting abortion rights.
U.S. District Court Judge James C. Fox ruled on Friday that North Carolina cannot produce or distribute the “Choose Life” plate.

How about.....Kill a Baby today!!
How about “Don’t Choose Death”?
And you are paying them for their services. ACLU is primarily tax funded in that if and when they, or others, bring a lawsuit regarding individula rights and they win, the Feds pays for all billed costs. Thatis why they ACLU is always on the hunt for winnable cases that will be brought before their friend is the federal courts.
I find nothing unconstitutionla about it. It’s a free speech issue. Because it’s a government issued plate?? So what....it’s person specific and bought and paid for.
Use bumper stickers....lots of them....The state and the courts can go to hell.
“Save the Manatees”, “Protect Wildlife”, “Kill the Babies”.
What a country!
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Does this so-called judge not realize that "LIFE" is the very reason why there is a first amendment? The amendments were laid down to support the Bill of Rights, most notably the need to protect LIFE. Yes, and that is also why the second amendment was established.
Maybe the judge did not notice that the amendment he cited says: "Congress shall make no law...prohibiting the free exercise thereof."
State’s rights too.
Sometimes it seems like it’s really a toss up whether these judges are politically biased or just stupid. Beck does these low brow shows where he calls quick stop markets to ask them simple questions and mock the poor clerks’ ignorance. Maybe he should be calling Federal judges.
ACLU is evil. Now there is a license plate message.
We the people understand instinctively that society has a compelling interest in protecting life. One only has to look at an elderly person and then look at an infant, and the connection becomes painfully obvious. Without infants, there can be no elderly.
KILL BABIES NOW
SAVE THE MANATEES
SLAUGHTER THE MANATEES
PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT
DESTROY PUBLIC LANDS
Personally, I dont like the message license plates at all. A plate is supposed to identify the registration info of a vehicle. Thats it.
That would be true if a vehicle was primarily an object to haul people and things.
I like it!
... It takes 300 members to apply and pay the extra $10 to $30 fee.
Guy’s probably feeling guilty for all the abortions he paid for.
yes we have wildlife advocacy plates in this State. So to be fair we also must have a Destroy Wildlife plate as well according to this Loony logic.
The judge read the "Congress" part to fluff it off as not applying whatsoever to the Judiciary. Of course, making "law" from the bench is fine.
The plate doesnt say “Ban Abortion” it says “Choose Life” which means people get to choose.
