Planned Parenthood Announces ‘My Body, My Choice’ License Plates to Counter ‘Choose Life’ Plates

LINCOLN, Neb. — Planned Parenthood of the Heartland has announced that its proposed “My Body, My Choice” license plates are now available for purchase by Nebraska residents after it submitted more than the 250 applications required by the state to request the production of certain specialty plates.

The plates, which include the Planned Parenthood logo, are posted on the Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles website among other speciality plates and cost $70.

Planned Parenthood issued a statement on Dec. 28 in which it said it was “proudly” unveiling the new plates.

“‘My Body, My Choice’ license plates are an opportunity for Nebraskans to voice their own opinion on issues of women’s health—opinions that don’t necessarily reflect the opinion of the governor, lieutenant governor and some senators,” said Meg Mikolajczyk, associate general counsel and senior public affairs manager.

“After all, the majority of Nebraskans and Americans overall believe that a woman should maintain her right to reproductive choice as established under Roe v. Wade,” she claimed.

Planned Parenthood admitted that it decided to pursue the specialty plates after the Nebraska legislature sought the creation of “Choose Life” plates, which include a graphic of a mother walking with her child. Gov. Pete Ricketts unveiled the new plates in late November at an Omaha crisis pregnancy center.

“Life is precious and public officials have a duty to stand up and be a voice for the unborn and most vulnerable,” he said, according to the Lincoln Journal Star. “As governor, I have worked to support initiatives that protect and strengthen the culture of life that Nebraskans embody.”

The bill proposing the “Choose Life” plates had been put forward by Sen. Dan Watermeier, R-Syracuse, and passed overwhelmingly in the legislature.

“Every community has a responsibility to guard, protect and cherish human life,” Watermeier stated.

According to the Associated Press, Nebraska policies allow for the creation of specialty plates if the proposing organization can demonstrate that at least 250 people will purchase the plate, submitting $70 for each plate—or $17,500—at the time of application.

Watermeier put forward the “Choose Life” plate after the group Choose Life Nebraska was unable to meet the 250 threshold as required.

Planned Parenthood, which aborted 328,348 babies in 2015 according to its latest annual report, has started off the new year by again pushing for so-called abortion rights, posting on Monday a graphic that reads, “My resistance resolution: Don’t let anyone stop me from exercising my reproductive rights.”

Its affiliates have likewise been defending abortion on social media, including Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, which tweeted the phrase “abortion is health care” on Friday, with the sentence repeating nine times. The post was liked over 25,000 times.

However, Christians have long decried abortion in America as being the savage murder of innocent children. Even in 1872, preacher Thomas De Witt Talmage wrote in his book “The Abominations of Modern Society:”

“Herod’s massacre of the innocents was as nothing compared to that of millions and millions by what I shall call ante-natal murders. You may escape the grip of the law, because the existence of such life was not known by society, but I tell you that at last God will shove down on you the avalanche of His indignation, and though you may not have wielded knife or pistol in your deeds of darkness, yet, in the day when John Wilkes Booth and Antony Probst come to judgment, you will have on your brow the brand of murderer.”

    I have seen many pictures and movies over the years like this and it NEVER ceases to horrify me and take my breath away. This is what pro abortion women and the democratic party support and fight for and demonize those who are against it. Now, look at that documentary, and try to convince yourself that this is “a choice”.

    • NCOriolesFan

      I watched the Silent Scream – graphic showing of an actual abortion with all the bloody aftermath. I was in emotional shock after that.

    Sure …. BUT … the body INSIDE your body is NOT your body ……….

  • Ben Welliver

    Fine. Do whatever you like to your own body. Leave that unborn child alone. It’s not you. It has its own DNA different from yours. You should be subject to exactly the same penalties as the father of the child would face if he causes the death of that child in the worm.

    Equal rights is equal rights. The laws in almost all states make it a felony for someone to cause the death of an unborn child – everybody except the mother and the abortionist, that is. That’s not right.

  • NCOriolesFan

    Good, now stop harassing pro-lifers over their Choose Life plate.

    • james blue

      I don’t agree with messages on plates, they are for vehicle identification. If you want to put a message forward, buy a bumper sticker.

      That said if you are going to allow one then you should allow all.

      • NCOriolesFan

        Well, go buy a b.s then. Leave me to buy the Choose Life plate, It’s my car.

  • NCOriolesFan

    Umm never mind the video, I almost threw-up in the first few seconds.

  • Reason2012

    So much for supposed “separation of church and state” as the state promotes the religious belief of child sacrifice on the altar of personal convenience.

  • james blue

    Plates are for vehicle identification. They should be plain background in design and easy to read lettering that stands out from the background The only thing that should be on them is the number and state of issue. Everything else is a bumper sticker.

    • NCOriolesFan

      And good for raising money for local charity as in this case.

      • james blue

        That can be done with a bumper sticker.

        Let’s say you witness a hit and run. A child is knocked over at a school crossing and the driver speeds off. You have only seconds to get the number. It makes it a heck of a lot harder with fancy designs and other writing on the plate. I don’t care what the message is, not everything should be a canvass for personal statements. Plates serve a specific purpose.

        • NCOriolesFan

          Besides the plate number, any added descriptions also help to capture the hit and run driver.

          • james blue

            Didn’t say other information wouldn’t help, but we aren’t all experts in vehicle make and model identification and the plate number gives the cops the vehicle owner’s name and address or the details of someone who can give the cops the driver’s information. If all you have is “a blue pickup” or “a green sedan”………….

            It isn’t about the message, it’s about what plates are for

          • NCOriolesFan

            Ok, whatever.

  • Lydia Church

    Too bad we can’t hear the human life inside crying out: “My body; my choice! I choose life!”
    But just as a newborn baby can’t utter these words, neither can the unborn one.
    It’s up to the mother to protect the helpless life of her innocent victim inside,
    or to let the child pay for a crime the child did not commit.
    You are their voice and they count on you to make the right choice.

    • Evermyrtle

      True enough, abortion is about killing the baby, doing nothing to the body, of the mother, so why does she whine, “IT IS MY BODY”? She allows, invites the baby “into her body” and then decides to murder him/her!

  • Jane

    Abortion is stilling the life of an innocent human being who can’t speak for themselves. Murder is not healthcare and anyone who claims to be a doctor that commits abortion, is a hypocrite. You are supposed to SAVE lives, not destroy them. It is not YOUR body, Planned Unparenthood supporters. It is a separate human life; thus murder. Satan is dancing because of all the misled people who promote killing of tiny, indefensible humans. God help us!

  • 48dodge

    Eugenics in action…selective breeding brought to you by the Democratic Party.

  • Thomas McCusker

    Shame on the government for allowing the murder of thousands of our Children. If you don’t want your wonderful child, please put it up for adoption rather than be executed.

  • Rufus Delufus

    If the fetus was part of a woman’s body, it would have the same DNA… which it does not.
    Abortion is the murder of a separate human being.

  • Rufus Delufus

    It’s especially important to get out and vote Republican straight across the board in 2018 and 2020. The baby murderers will all be voting this time.

  • hillbilly

    MY BODY MY CHOICE….That sounds like I can snort coke, shoot up heroin or prostitute my body for money legally any time I want, after all its MY BODY MY CHOICE…….Hears a thought ,If I kill a pregnant lady and her unborn baby I get tried for two murders. How come P.P. can kill all the babies they want, and then sell the baby parts for money
