Under a deadline, Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell signs bill to create the pro-choice “Trust Women” license plate but adds one final amendment to bill.
It seems Virginia is once again on the verge of offering drivers a pro-choice specialty license plate with the money going to Planned Parenthood.
In what some hope is a temporary setback to pro-choice supporters, the Virginia House of Delegates passed a bill that would create a pro-choice license plate, but would redirect the proceeds away from Planned Parenthood, the plate’s sponsor.
Virginia’s General Assembly is inching towards passage of legislation that would approve the creation of a pro-choice specialty license plate, making it the fourth state with a pro-choice design and the first created that required legislative approval.
In the field of reproductive rights, you win some, and women lose some. Plus sometimes it seems for every step forward women make, someone wants to start you back at the beginning.
Virginia may become only the fourth state to offer a “pro-choice” specialty license plate. But why is there a huge disparity between the states that offer “choose life” plates and those that offer pro-choice ones?
