NC: Judge rules “Choose Life” license plates unconstitutional
"A federal judge ruled on Friday that North Carolina’s anti-abortion 'Choose Life' license plates violated the First Amendment of the United States Constitution.
In his 21-page opinion, U.S. District Court Judge James C. Fox said that the state Legislature’s decision to offer a 'Choose Life' license plate, while refusing to offer a pro-choice alternative 'constitutes viewpoint discrimination in violation of the First Amendment.'
North Carolina began offering the plates in 2011 as one of 79 specialty plates approved by the Republican-controlled legislature and signed by Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue."
Another perversion of the "establishment" clause
