Courts Say 'No' to Choose Life Plates

Tuesday, January 25, 2005

From the Associated Press:

The Supreme Court declined Monday to consider whether states may offer license plates with anti-abortion messages, leaving lower courts divided over whether the programs in a dozen states unconstitutionally restrict dissenting views.

Without comment, justices let stand a lower court ruling that said South Carolina's license plates, which bear the slogan "Choose Life," violate the First Amendment because abortion rights supporters weren't given a similar forum to express their beliefs.
Say what?? Now the First Amendment guarantees all sides a fair voice? Where were liberals when Ralf Nader wanted such equality? And who on Earth could possibly have a problem with someone who paid $70 that went to a local crisis pregnancy program for an anti-abortion license plate?

Oh that's right. The dastardly people at Planned Parenthood. Because no one should be allowed to express an opinion that challenges the beliefs of the American Left.
