Editorial hits the mark on “choose life” plates

An editorial in this morning’s Fayetteville Observer does an excellent job of getting to the heart of the folly in the legislature’s ridiculous decision to approve the minting of “choose life” license plates.

“The original sin here, dating back many years, is the legislature’s decision to turn vehicle identification tags into billboards for all sorts of cockamamie stuff. Had license plates remained simple regulatory aids, none of this would be happening.

Still, if pro-lifers want those plates, there’s a quick and easy way to get them. Their allies in the General Assembly can rewrite the statute, and include comparable and equal provisions for those who hold different points of view on the subject.”
