    So.... if NC issued a “Slavery Sucks!” plate, the ACLU would sue if the state does not also offer a “Slavery Rocks!” plate?
    What I don't understand is they said it was unconstitutional. How is it unconstitutional unless the state offers similar plates supporting abortion rights. Is that honestly in their states constitution???
    If it sounds like Marx and acts like Stalin...it must be Obama

    Choose life is a pro-choice option/response.

    The irony is that this thread is about an issue in North Carolina.......

    And you brought up the Freedom Fries..... which is also something that kind of has most of its roots here in.... North Carolina.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Good work - but not quite.
    None of these lawshuits are predicated on a pro-gun rights argument; rather, they focus on improer actions by the government - that is, the government acting outside of its bounds - independent of any right to arms held by the plantiff(s).

    And if they were to allow Pro-Choice as well, there wouldn't be a problem.

    So the pro choicers are actually anti life? How does Choose Life conflict with any pro choice message? Aren't the pro choicers also pro life?

    I'm not offended by pro choice on license plates and would not go to court to sue someone if it was on a license plate. Life is just too damn short.

    How is Choose Life against Pro Choice?

    Shouldn't we all strive to Choose Life? Isn't that a worthy goal?

    Or people can stop acting like they are 5 years old.

    The plate already does take a pro-choice stance. Choose life is a choice. What do you want, a license plate that says "choose death"? That would be the opposite in this case.

    Honestly it's just a bunch of people whining about nothing, this isn't a equal rights issue. It's a bunch of people who do not realize that the plate already upholds the position of almost every single person in the US. It covers pro-choice, it makes a statement respecting life.

    I certainly wouldn't care, and would vote to allow it if I were in the position. At the same time, I don't think the state should be forced to make Pro-Choice (or any specialty plate) available.
