States are blocking pro-lifers from sharing the simple message “Choose Life” on their vehicles!

Please SIGN this joint petition between LifeSite and The Children First Foundation to make "Choose Life" license plates available in every state! Tell governors and state officials to allow this pro-life freedom of speech.

Advertising industry statistics show that, for the typical vehicle, a “Choose Life” plate and its simple, powerful message will be seen by other drivers 30,000 to 80,000 times a year.

And, across the U.S., “Choose Life” vehicle license plates (or tags) have raised more than $28 million for pro-life pregnancy centers, maternity homes, safe havens, and adoption centers, varying with each state.

The potential for expanding the “Choose Life” license plate program to new states and new members is incredible – but only if citizens are allowed to have the plates!

It is appalling that seventeen U.S. states do not allow their citizens the right to put “Choose Life” license plates on their vehicles.

The plates have been called pro-life “scare tactics” by Planned Parenthood and unlawful or hateful “private speech” by pro-abortion lawyers. The “Choose Life” message, however, is one of pure love that scares nobody except those who profit from death.

It is unacceptable that we are blocked from our God-given and Constitutional right to spread the message of love and life for vulnerable unborn and newborn children.

Your signature on this petition – no matter where you live – will help to get the “Choose Life” license plate program in states where it is not yet permitted!

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to make a real difference in persuading these state governments and Departments of Motor Vehicles to “Choose Life.”

Consider, for example, our experience in New York, where Governor Andrew Cuomo is a nationally-recognized advocate of abortion and has been a relentless opponent of the pro-life movement.

Cuomo has blocked the approval of “Choose Life” license plates in NY, despite widespread support for these truly positive messages of love and life. A headline in the New York Post declared, “The DMV Acts Like We Live in Pyongyang.”

And, in nearby New Jersey and Connecticut, similar hurdles were faced.

But we took the fight to the government officials and even to federal court. And, with the help of petitions, we were able to get “Choose Life” license plates on the road in both states.

It is high time for us to convert EVERY state in America to choose life.

Your signature on this petition - no matter where you live - will help make that happen by placing “Choose Life” license plates on tens of thousands more cars.

For love, for life, for the babies, please SIGN and SHARE our worldwide petition to tell state officials and politicians to stop blocking approval of the “Choose Life” license plate!

Overseen by weDignify and dozens of local organizations, this year’s March for Life Chicago will lead the Midwest pro-life movement in voicing its support for life in a new way — through the Moving the Movement, a multicity tour with stops in Des Moines, IA; Indianapolis, IN; Omaha, NE; Madison, WI; Mundelein, IL; and Fort Wayne, IN in the weeks leading up to the March for Life Chicago downtown in the Chicago loop.

“Over 130,000 lives are lost in the Midwest each year to the tragedy of abortion,” stated March for Life Chicago Executive Director Kevin Grillot. “Each one of us has the opportunity to stand up against the biggest human rights crisis of our time. In 2021, we are bringing the March for Life Chicago to individual cities, giving people the chance to mourn the many lives lost in their communities and to advocate for a life-giving future for unborn babies and for their parents.”

The tour will span five states, stopping at seven separate locations. At each tour stop, speakers will address the affliction of abortion and the destruction reaped upon families, killing unborn babies and harming their parents. Participants will also hear inspiring stories and a rallying cry to unite with their neighbors throughout the Midwest in actively defending life.

Marches and car rallies will take place at designated times and locations, where together with local co-sponsoring organizations, the March for Life Chicago will welcome thousands of individuals, families, and groups, to advocate for mothers and their babies and voice opposition to Roe v. Wade and anti-life legislation.

The local tour stops will build up momentum that will culminate in the major event on January 23 — the March for Life Chicago.

As in past years, diverse groups united by their respect for life will gather together in downtown Chicago. Careful attention will be paid to the logistics to ensure that pro-life voices are heard, local regulations are honored, and all marchers are kept safe.
