The Choice Is Life Or Death
The US Supreme Court has refused to hear whether the "Choose Life" license plates of Tennessee constitute "viewpoint discrimination." The suit had been brought by the ACLU and abortion advocates.
Now that the high court has agreed not to hear the case, the appeals court decision permitting the plates stands. Hedy M. Weinberg, executive director of the ACLU of Tennessee, said she was disappointed. Of course she was.
I don't get it, what license plate would reflect the opposing viewpoint of Choose Life? Not, Pro Choice, because Choose Life already implies there is a choice to be made. If you want to oppose the Choose Life viewpoint then what do you proclaim? Choose Death with a little skull and crossbones pictured? Or, maybe Choose Abortion; I don't want to imagine the visual.
It's sad to consider there would be many people driving around proclaiming these messages on their vehicles. Still, we are dealing with the left and the disciples of Margaret Sanger, the mother of Planned Parenthood and the advocate of sterilizing the "unfit."
