CROMWELL, Connecticut, December 3, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – The Children First Foundation and LifeSiteNews have jointly launched a national petition on LifePetitions.com to demand that government officials in American states stop blocking pro-lifers from sharing the simple message “Choose Life” on their vehicles.

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!

“It is appalling that seventeen U.S. states do not allow their citizens the right to place ‘Choose Life’ branded, organizational license plates on their vehicles,” said Christopher Reilly, Vice President of The Children First Foundation. “We aim to change that.”

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.

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.

“Choose Life” vehicle license plates have raised more than $28 million for pro-life pregnancy centers, maternity homes, safe havens, and adoption centers, varying with each state.

Owners of vehicles with custom pro-life license plates donate an annual membership contribution to their state’s Choose Life organization (sometimes collected by the state with annual driver’s fees), and nearly all funds are redistributed as grants within the member’s state or to a member-designated recipient, meaning that local pro-life organizations benefit hugely from “Choose Life” plate ownership.

States offer custom license plates that benefit various causes, such as the environment, animal rescues, and medical research. Some states also offer pro-abortion license plates.

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.

Please “Choose Life” and consider signing this pro-life petition.
