Democrats Refuse "Choose Life" Plate

The state of North Carolina currently allows 130 specialized license plates to be purchased for cars of NC drivers. 22 states allow drivers to select a specialized "Choose Life" plate.

Still, NC Democrats are standing in the way of pro-life advocates who wish to be able to choose life when they choose their license plate. If approved, $15 from every plate sold would benefit the Carolina Pregnancy Care Fellowship, a nonprofit that seeks to provide alternatives to abortion for would-be mothers desperately searching for a better option.

For the record, no one is stopping Rep. Ty Harrell or anyone else from creating a "Right to Choose" plate whose proceeds partially fund Planned Parenthood or another pro-abortion group. But why stand on principle when you can just silence others? Isn't that the mantra of NC Democrats?
