North Carolina Defends “Choose Life” License Plates Before 4th Circuit   Leave a comment

You think the geniuses in Raleigh would know that there are certain political & free speech lines you don’t cross in regards to license plates…advocating for certain positions is one of them:

(AP) — A North Carolina assistant attorney general urged a federal appeals court to allow the state to offer anti-abortion license plates without providing plates that express the opposite view.

U.S. District Judge James Fox ruled last December that offering just the “Choose Life” license plate violates the First Amendment. The state appealed, and a three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond heard arguments Wednesday.

Kathryne Hathcock of the attorney general’s office said the state is entitled to use specialty license tags to advance its preference for childbirth over abortion.

Chris Brook, (an) attorney (with the ACLU), argued that allowing plates expressing only one side of the contentious abortion issue is a classic example of viewpoint discrimination. The court usually takes several weeks to rule.(WTOP, Washington D.C.)
