Michigan Motorists Could Soon Have Pro-Life Licence Plate Option

Source: CBS



LANSING (WWJ) — The Michigan State Senate Transportation Committee has approved legislation that would give motorists the choice to have a “pro-life” specialty licence plate on their vehicles.

Bill sponsor Senator Patrick Colbeck (R-Canton) says part of the money raised by the $35 plates will go toward pregnancy resource centers and abortion alternatives, but also towards suicide prevention services.

“$25 of the proceeds would go towards a special Choose Life fund, that would support life affirming services such as the services that you would find at a pregnancy resource center,” Colbeck said. “They take care of mothers facing unplanned pregnancy, provide for daily needs.”

Currently, 29 states and the District of Columbia have authorized Choose Life license plates, generating more than $21 million for life-promoting activities.


I would like to see a pro-choice license plate with proceeds going toward Planned Parenthood, if this goes through. Although I know that would never happen here.

1. Does choosing life entail choosing not to drive drunk or text while driving?

How about a plate with some concern for road safety?

4. We have pro-life in Florida

My tag says Choice in Polish. No one here knows Polish so it goes unnoticed. But I know it and it helps me when I see the pro-lifers.

7. If these useless vermin get one, I want a pro-reproductive rights one.

"ONE PLANET, ONE CHILD."

Seriously, those specialized plates are a rip-off.

8. How about a pro-legalizing cannabis option?

I'm betting no go on that one.
