Choose Life license plate passes out of Michigan Senate

The Michigan Senate voted 25 -11 to approve SB 163 on Thursday to create a Choose Life license plate in the state of Michigan. The bill now heads to the House of Representatives.

Sponsored by Senator Patrick Colbeck, the plate would act as a fundraiser to support women in crisis pregnancies and encourage adoption throughout the state. The plates would cost $35 with $25 going to a Choose Life Fund that would be set up, and $10 to the state for the cost of producing the plate.

Abortion supporters predictably complained, saying we shouldn't let citizens purchase plates for "political" organizations. Purchasing this plate would be completely voluntary, unlike the $500+ millions of taxpayer dollars Planned Parenthood coerces everyone to give them annually. There are currently 29 states that have a Choose Life license plate.

You can contact your state representative and ask them to vote "yes" on SB 163!
