Judge finds NC ‘Choose Life’ plates unconstitutional
A federal judge has ruled it is unconstitutional for North Carolina to issue pro-life license plates unless the state offers similar plates supporting abortion rights.

U.S. District Court Judge James C. Fox ruled on Friday that North Carolina cannot produce or distribute the “Choose Life” plate.

Judge Fox concluded, “The State’s offering of a Choose Life license plate in the absence of a pro-choice plate constitutes viewpoint discrimination in violation of the First Amendment.”

That's funny - I don't recall a requirement to "balance" every example of free-speech with its ideological opposite.

If the "other" group wants them, they need to exercise their free speech to push for it - not depend on the STATE to DECREE "free speech" should be "balanced".

But he throws you in jail for not going along with gun control, which is just another viewpoint.

I would guess that the ruling is aimed at the "State's" speech, not yours. The State can't support one cause above the other, even secondarily, through only offering one type (or design) of a State issued License. Your speech isn't being curtailed, unless you are the side without apparent representation...just sayin'

no doubt if the NC population requested such a plate it would be issued....they never miss an opportuniy to make another nickel!

This Judge is out of line....nothing backs his so-called decision.

Here's a crazy idea. Separation of church and state.
Don't allow any extra shit on any license plate.
Simple.

NC offers many different plates at a higher cost of course....this isn't a religious issue anyway.
