Pro-abort email of the week: "Speachless" over Choose Life license plates

Pro-abort Carolyn Carlin copied me on a letter she sent to FL Gov. Charlie Crist re: FL's Choose Life license plates. Click to enlarge:

Well, this will be fun....

First, the reason there is no "Pro Choice" license plate in FL is because Carolyn's people a) can't get their act together; and b) can't raise the money.

United for Choice.jpg3 years ago the FL National Organization for Women launched such a campaign, 6 months later announcing its winning plate design, "United for Choice," strangely showing baby stars shooting heavenward from inside a mommy star. View news story here.

Since then NOW disavowed itself from the effort, and apparently pro-aborts got so much flak for the baby stars plate they abandoned it, too.

United for Choice 2 and 3.JPGCurrently the the remaining group, LicenseToChoose.org, shows 2 new samples. The tiny female symbol in the bottom plate inaccurately portrays an aborted baby girl. It should be mangled.

Nevertheless, the pro-aborts' other problem is they need to raise $75k. In 3 years they have only mustered $5k according to their little thermometer.

As for Carolyn's accusation that FL Choose Life proceeds are going to a "political belief," here's where the money goes, according to the law:

... not-for-profit agencies... [with] services... limited to counseling and meeting the physical needs of pregnant women who are committed to placing their children for adoption. Funds may not be distributed to any agency that is involved or associated with abortion activities....

donation goal.jpgWhy Carolyn considers adoption too "political" is not beyond me, given her pro-death proclivity.

Finally, after receiving her criminal attorney husband's expert legal advice, Carolyn has determined, "This issue is now more appropriately addressed at the Federal level, and as such I have focused my attentions in that direction."

I suspect Carolyn's husband simply wanted her out of his hair chasing legal rabbits, either that or the pair is equally matched in ignorance, because the FL Choose Life license plate endeavor already won in federal court. In fact, Choose Life has won federal court lawsuits in AZ, CA, MO, OK, and TN, too. OH pro-aborts withdrew their case after the TN loss. Pro-lifers did lose in SC, but legislators proceeded to change the law and approved Choose Life plates.

Here are the 22 states Carolyn should avoid so she won't be "speachless" upon entry when seeing Choose Life plates on the road (click to enlarge):

5 more states have approved Choose Life plates, but they are not in production yet. Still Carolyn should avoid them, because we never know when the first ones will appear. They are: AZ, DE, ND, NM, and VA.

Whoops, scratch VA. CBS reported yesterday its first Choose Life plate became available July 1.

14 other states are working on getting plates.

montana pro-choice.jpgIt appears Carolyn is running out of states to revel in her pro-abortion fantasies unbothered. There are 2 states offering pro-abortion plates, MT, and HI, atlhough I must say the MT plate looks pro-life, not pro-abortion.

Strange that more pro-abort groups haven't jumped on the opportunity to show their posses are bigger than ours via direct competition of plate sales. But therein lies the problem. Theirs aren't. Read the following and weep. HI may soon say aloha to its pro-death plate:

We are battling here in NC to get the plates...UUGGHHH...Frustrating to see some success for the pro choicers while some of us still struggle to get a CHOOSE LIFE plate here in NC...

Gosh I wish I could join in all the funnsies here!
Just quickly:

First off, I'm sure Carolyn Carlin knows how to put on a condom on her partner but she sure can't spell. :{
Secondly, nice to know she lives in a state where she won't have to think about all those dead babies as she's driving around the city/state. Maybe those Show the truth trucks will someday help her with that!

Thirdly, that Choice plate is/was so new age. Yuck. Maybe they could just show a dead baby (we can help if they need the pictures) and underneath have the words "Not my body, but my choice"

Gee what will Carolyn do if she runs out of states to live in? I wonder.....

Rib-tickling. Are there state-by-state numbers of "choose life" plates sold?

One brief detail: Montana is MT, not MN (which is Minnesota).

Posted by: Ben D. at July 14, 2009 9:48 AM


Carolyn, love, you're arguing with the wrong person.

Crist had nothing to do with the litigation over the license plates. It was Gov. Jeb Bush at the time when all this was blowing over.
And for the record, Crist is pro-choice.

Your anger is better directed at your pro-choice comrades who have yet to produce a wildly successful license plate such as the "Choose Life" one.

Exhibit A in Progressive Wimpiness: decrying any "challenge to your personal or political beliefs".

What, can't take the (Florida) heat?

Prolifers have to face it constantly. And we're the stronger for it.

I'm happy to report I received my beautiful new "Choose Life" VIRGINIA plate in the mail this weekend! I will be putting it on my car today.

As for Carolyn... oh poor, confused woman. "Roe v Wade was decided many years ago. Abortion is legal."

Why, yes Carolyn we actually are aware. But as Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, "never forget that everything Hitler did in Germany was legal too."

Love,
Your favorite "third-world underdeveloped cave dweller"

It was almost painful to read this post. The things people will do to promote a woman's right to choose death...

When will people realize there is no need for legal abortion? ILLEGAL abortion will not force OB/GYN doctors to withhold proper LIFE-SAVING care from their patients. President Obama, our fearless leader, certainly understands this. The ACOG should be ashamed of their support for "choice".

Posted by: Janet at July 14, 2009 10:14 AM


Look out, Carolyn! Close your eyes! There goes a mother pushing a stroller containing a living child aka "the one that got away"...oh no, don't look- there's a school full of them- hundreds of children whose parents "chose" that ugly word- my, my- you must be hyperventilating by now...don't turn on your television or go to the store- they're everywhere! LIFE LIFE LIFE! How my heart aches to think of you squirming - you'd better burn your own baby pictures lest you ever be tempted to be thankful for the "choice" your mother made. You'd better move into your barren bubble now if you want any chance of surviving in this thriving, living world without your head exploding! But before you close your eyes and put your fingers in your ears while humming "na na na na I can't hear you"- can we help you find enough people so you can get your "Choose Death" plates for whenever you feel brave enough to join the real, living world again?

Posted by: Michelle at July 14, 2009 10:15 AM


Wow! Not HI can't even muster 150 cheerleaders for death?

Perhaps the lies, racism and ongoing criminal coverup
of Planned Parenthood are becoming crystal clear to the
body politic!

Posted by: Leslie Hanks at July 14, 2009 10:32 AM


This always reminds me of Covenant Trucking Co.

They have a sign on all their trucks that says "It's a child, not a choice."

I used to see them all the time on trips to my grandparents with my mother. She was always highly offended.

Posted by: Lauren at July 14, 2009 10:42 AM


In Colorado, we have a Pro Life License plate. It was not designed specifically to address the anti abortion issue; it was designed after the Columbine tragedy. However, the plate still notes RESPECT LIFE. http://www.colorado.gov/cs/Satellite/Revenue-MV/RMV/1201542141645#columbine

"Was there a pro-choice license plate counterpart I could obtain?"

Well the plates does say "CHOOSE life" doesn't it? If "Pro-choice" people are so passionate about having "Choices" then they should have no problems with anyone choosing LIFE.

That TN plate is really nice!

Posted by: dm60462 at July 14, 2009 11:36 AM


I like that proposed license plate with the stars going straight from the womb, up to heaven. It brings to mind a scripture: "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."

It is surprising that the pro-abortion folks would come up with this idea -- they are generally not very strong on connecting any concept of life, or alive, with the blob of flesh, and generally are not very interested in references to heaven or afterlife.

Bingo.

If anyone is on a committee that worked on getting their state a LIFE plate will you please email me? I would be interested in helping WI get one as well!!

Posted by: carla Author Profile Page at July 14, 2009 1:32 PM


dm60462, I've had four of the Tennessee Choose Life plates for about a year now, and they do look great! And if you knew all that went into the fight to get them here, you'd appreciate them even more.

I guess it's probably the same in most states, but anyway in our legislature the proaborts sued on the grounds that the state did not provide them a plate, even though they did not meet the same criteria that we met. In other words, they demanded that we furnish them with a proabort (or a "pro-death") plate. We declined, and got ours instead. And we love it!

Reading that letter just made me sad. A person has to be pretty messed up emotionally to write all that garbage. I can only imagine the fear they must feel, when faced with the possibility that they may some day be unable to escape the unavoidable conclusion that they supported the killing of babies. What a downer that must be.

Posted by: Doyle Chadwick at July 14, 2009 1:46 PM


We are so proud of the TN license plate. It is now the 11th best selling plates and proceeds go to life affirming non profits such as pregnancy resource centers. Yes, it was a battle all the way up the the US Supreme Ct. They sued us when we won in the state legislature on the ground of viewpoint discrimination. They did not meet the requirements of to have a pro abortion one since they could not get their bill passed.

Posted by: Maria at July 14, 2009 2:32 PM


I notice that Carolyn Carlin is upset that she faced a "challenge" to her "personal and political beliefs" while at stoplights. I think that's the real reason behind her opposition to these license plates. This woman, like so many pro-abortion liberals, wishes to shut down any opinion different from her own.

Posted by: Elizabeth at July 14, 2009 2:49 PM


I almost feel sorry for someone who is as filled with hate as she seems to be. It must be tough maintaining that kind of rage on a daily basis. Can you imagine being so OFFENDED by two little words...CHOOSE LIFE ???

Posted by: Pamela at July 14, 2009 3:06 PM


It's so funny how when some people's beliefs aren't being absolutely coddled, their reaction is to take legal action. As if it's some basic right to not ever be offended. Oh! My precious sensibilities! They're not being catered to by this simple peasant! How unfair! Why isn't everyone "progressive" enough to adopt my way of thinking or remain silent?

Posted by: Janette at July 14, 2009 5:32 PM

Bingo.

Posted by: Hal at July 14, 2009 1:31 PM

Speak for yourself, Hal.

Also, I loooooove my CL AR license plate. I have never been so happy to be back in the great state of Arkansas. Sure, the people sometimes leave much to be desired intellectually, but they mean well, and for the most part have good hearts. I'll take that over the "enlightened progressives" any day of the week, twice on Sunday. :P

Posted by: xalisae at July 14, 2009 7:25 PM


For starters, Carolyn can't even spell "speechless" correctly... those intent on murdering babies are obviously too busy to be bothered with such trivialities. They are far too intelligent.

How self-important and elitist of her to be put-out by someone else having the right to display and express their views on abortion. How dare anyone "challenge" her in such a confrontational way as a license plate!

This woman needs to grow up, get over herself, and learn to spell.

Posted by: Jen at July 14, 2009 9:37 PM


Poor woman hasn't quite grasped what it means to live in a democratic and pluralist society.

Or indeed, any kind of society at all!

If you want more information about the Choose Life license plate in your state, visit www.choose-life.org and click on other states. Here, we are working tirelessly to get the plate in Massachusetts. We need 1500 people to pre-purchase the plate. We have 871 people signed up so far! If you live in Massachusetts and would like to sign up for a plate, please email me. God bless!

Posted by: Merry Nordeen at July 15, 2009 7:40 AM


Ms. Nordeen, How is this for irony. My sister chose life for her son even when she knew he had down syndrome. But she is way far left and would sooner put a "pro-choice" plate on her family mini-van. And the icing on the cake, she is working on a masters in theology to be a youth pastor where she can infect young minds with her highly edited version of the Gospel.

As for Carolyn, I suspect she is like many hybrid drivers my niece passes in her Hummer H2. They give her the "bird" for failing to make a choice they approve of. I told her she needs a bumpah stickah that says "My Hummer Can Drive Over Your Hybrid."

Posted by: Pamela at July 14, 2009 3:06 PM

Although I have no problem with these plates, I can see why some would find them terribly offensive. It's shorthand for saying "if I had my way, women would be stripped of their right to terminate pregnancies legally and safely." That is a very offensive point of view to many people.

Posted by: Hal at July 15, 2009 12:10 PM

Yes, how dare we have the gall to bring to anyone's attention the fact that those "pregnancies" contain developing human beings-fetal humans, soon-to-be infants, and generally-speaking of course, children.

We are just the limit, I tell ya.

I'm just saying, people on both sides of this issue have strong feelings and convictions they're they're right and the other side is wrong.

Posted by: Hal at July 15, 2009 12:52 PM

True, but I'm more interested in the "why" of it all. It's not as if anything we (myself in particular, not to toot my own horn) is not factual. Why would such a statement obviously based in fact bring such seething outrage? It doesn't make much sense to me, really.

Posted by: xalisae at July 15, 2009 1:39 PM


Xalisae, I personally don't have any seething outrage over pro-life statements. But, I've never been on the front lines of the abortion rights struggle. Makes sense to me that someone who has dedicated a large part of their life to protecting a woman's right to safe and legal abortion would get a bit outraged over those who were fighting just as hard in the opposite direction.

Posted by: Hal at July 15, 2009 1:52 PM


First of all Caralin or whatever your name is, you can't spell. Also, I would like to point out that you don't have to worry...Florida is very progressive and does not do horrible things like embrace LIFE (I shudder at the thought!) Florida is killing babies every day so just rest your little head. In fact, just three years ago that fine state allowed an unborn baby born alive during an abortion to be thrown up onto an abortion clinic roof in a biohazard bag to suffocate and burn in the caustic chemicals under the blazing Florida sun. So its a very fine state as you can see and you should go on back and live among your blood thirsty sisters. Don't storm off in a huff because there aren't enough dead babies there! silly girl.

And I don't have a problem with pro-death individuals expressing their belief that abortion on demand is acceptable. As a matter of fact, my husband went to war and served 2 tours in Iraq so stupid people could freely express their disgusting and idiotic opinions. But I tolerate it, because I appreciate a free society, even though I will fight tooth-and-nail until the wholesale slaughter of our youth by their own mothers at the hands of contract killers in labcoats is ended. Until it IS ended though, as I said before, I'd fight also to allow her opinion to be heard. Why can't she afford us the same courtesey? It's not as though we didn't follow the proper channels to get our voices heard in the first place.

I am saddned that my home state Illinois is not on the "Choose Life" list.
