Governor Rick Snyder vetoed legislation that would have created a Choose Life specialty license plate in Michigan. Funds from the license plates would have gone to pregnancy help and suicide prevention programs.
According to the Guttmacher Institute, in 2017:
“29 states allow production of “Choose Life” license plates.
15 of the states donate a portion of the proceeds raised to specific antichoice organizations or CPCs.
18 of the states donate a portion of the proceeds to agencies or organizations that provide adoption assistance, counseling, training or advertising.
1 state uses the funds raised by the plates to pay for roads and road repairs.
10 states specifically prohibit the allocation of funds raised by the sale of “Choose Life” license plates to agencies or organizations that provide abortion services, counseling, referrals or advertising.”
Even with this setback Right to Life of Michigan remains dedicated to making sure that Michigan will have a Choose Life license plate and they look forward to working with the next governor to make the license plate a reality.
