Choose Life Wisconsin Urges Supreme Court to Take "Choose Life" License Plate Case




After months of hard work, passionate lobbying at the State Capitol, and many phone calls and emails from grassroots pro-lifers, the "Choose Life" Wisconsin license plate was killed by Senate Republican leadership this past April. This positive, life affirming plate is designed to save lives and help women in need by funding crisis pregnancy outreach centers. Unfortunately, the Wisconsin State Senate was more interested in politics than honoring the free speech of pro-life Wisconsinites. 

Now, however, attorneys with the Thomas More Society and Wisconsin attorney Michael Dean and his First Freedoms Foundation have filed an amicus brief on behalf of Choose Life Wisconsin, Choose Life America, and Illinois Choose Life. The brief urges the U.S. Supreme Court to take on a lower court case that addresses the free speech rights of Americans who want to purchase "Choose Life" license plates. If the Supreme Court agrees to take on the case, it would be a wonderful opportunity for pro-life and pro-family groups to argue for the right to have "Choose Life" license plates across the country.

"Thousands of drivers wish to purchase ‘Choose Life’ specialty plates in order to express their personal views in favor of an important societal issue," said Steve Crampton, Thomas More Society special counsel, "but they are not able to do so because of confusing contradictions in the lower courts. It’s high time that this conflict is resolved once and for all–the forum of specialty plates should include all speech."

Pope Francis Offers Silent Pro-Life Witness in South Korea




During his visit to Korea last week, Pope Francis offered the world a strong, silent witness against the tragedy of abortion, visiting a cemetery and monument for the victims of abortion. The Pope stopped to pray silently before a garden of white crosses that marked the graves of hundreds of aborted children. The moment came during a visit to the House of Hope Center for the Disabled, a center for men and women with genetic abnormalitiesa demographic that is frequently aborted.
