New Law Could Make Driving So Much Better

New legislation passed in the Michigan Senate would allow drivers to purchase a license plate with the words “Choose Life” on it.

Proceeds would go to the Choose Life Michigan Fund to help nonprofit anti-abortion groups, such as crisis pregnancy centers and specific abortion prevention projects, according to Macomb Daily News

Senator Patrick Colbeck, lead sponsor of the bill, said that it would not force anyone to buy the plate, instead providing it only as one of several license plate option for drivers.

“The proceeds from the license plate enabled under this legislation would help satisfy the material needs of a mother – such as diapers, gas money or shelter – all within a very loving environment that seeks what is best for the mother, as well as what is best for the child in her womb,” said Colbeck.

Michigan is the only state on the Interstate 75 corridor to Florida that does not have a “Choose Life” license plate, said Ed Rivet, legislative director for the anti-abortion group Right to Life Michigan.

He added that this issue has been fought in the legislature for over 10 years.

Senator Rebekah Warren, a Democrat, opposed the bill, arguing that it “would be the first and most politically blatant license plate we’ve ever had in our state.”

She suggested that funds be diverted to other venues, such as providing birth control, family planning an affordable health care.

Two other amendments, both proposed by Democrats, which addressed redirecting monies to other health services and infant mortality rates, were defeated.
