Choose Life license plates

Choose Life license plates are specialty license plates available in 33[1][2] states in the United States that express an anti-abortion message. The plates are the concept of Choose Life, Inc., an anti-abortion advocacy group based in Ocala, Florida.[3] It was founded in 1997 by Randy Harris, a commissioner of Marion County, after he got an idea (when he noticed an environmental plate on the car in front of him, while stuck in traffic) to use specialty license plates as a way to raise funds for crisis pregnancy centers, which are nonprofit organizations established to counsel women against receiving abortions. Crisis pregnancy centers have been known to provide false medical information.[4] The plates feature the phrase "Choose Life", a slogan used by the anti-abortion movement, and a child art-like drawing of two children.[4]
