Massachusetts, the state where I grew up and that many people assume is a lefty paradise, will be offering motorists anti-choice license plates. The plates, which read “Choose Life” and will direct funds to crisis pregnancy centers, are available in over twenty other states already. Compare that to four states with pro-choice plates.
Crisis pregnancy centers are in the business of keeping women from accessing abortion, and regularly give out false and misleading information to achieve that goal. And now we’ve got one more state that will be directing license plate funds to these ideologically motivated fake clinics.
Apparently God’s a supporter of the plates according to Merry Nordeen, who led the campaign to get them approved, though that didn’t help expedite the process in a state with no legislative hurdle for new license plates:
“I prayed really hard for this — I prayed for seven years, and God didn’t disappoint me,” she said in a phone interview.
So your God’s a big fan of deception then? Isn’t lying supposed to be a sin?
There are currently no plans to introduce pro-choice license plates that would fund real and unbiased reproductive health clinics in MA. Um, why not?
