Virginia legislature approves pro-abortion license plate

Catholic World News - February 17, 2010

Legislators in Virginia have voted to approve a specialty license plate with the message “Trust Women/Respect Choice.” Under the version of the bill approved by the state senate, proceeds from the license plate would go to Planned Parenthood; the state house bill, however, would direct proceeds to a state fund for pregnant women.

Virginia is among the 22 states with a “Choose Life” specialty license plate.
