A pro-life organization in Georgia has rolled out a new license plate that gives pro-lifers a unique opportunity to voice their support for the unborn.
The newly designed “Choose Life” license plate from the group “Choose Life of Georgia” was introduced on January 28 and features a powerful illustration of a child’s hand resting in the palm of an adult. The tags are $25 each (plus a $35 annual fee) and can be obtained through the state’s various county tag offices.
“Our message is that every child – born or pre-born – deserves loving protection and support,” the organization’s president, Karen LaBarr, said in a press release. “We especially want to encourage expectant women to choose life for their babies by parenting them or by entrusting them to adoptive parents.”
The updated plate comes almost fifteen years after then-Senator Brian Kemp sponsored legislation and a constitutional amendment that permitted the usage of the original “Choose Life” plates. Since then, the revenue generated from the sale of the plates has been shared between the state and various non-profits — a financial arrangement that will continue for the redesigned tags.
“A portion of each annual special tag fee is received by Choose Life of Georgia,” the group noted. “These funds are passed on to qualified non-profit clinics and centers that provide compassionate care to young girls, women and families trying to navigate the circumstances common to unplanned pregnancy.”
Choose Life of Georgia noted that Georgia is currently home to around 3,000 vehicles that are proudly boasting the special plates. The group also revealed that the project has generated a staggering $400,000 in total revenue — cash which is promptly distributed “to help those in unexpected pregnancy.”
“Thousands of couples would gladly adopt the 30,000 babies lost to abortion each year in Georgia, and resources are available to help those who decide to parent,” LaBarr explained, noting that the license plates “carry a message of hope and love for women and their unborn babies.”
