Court Finds North Carolina ‘Choose Life’ License Plates UnConstitutional

Court Finds North Carolina ‘Choose Life’ License Plates UnConstitutional
SCREENSHOT

A Federal judge has ruled that it is unConstitutional for the State of North Carolina to issue pro-life license plates unless it also offers pro-abortion license plates.

In a ruling Friday, U.S. District Court Judge James C. Fox said that the lack of a pro-abortion choice means that the State should no longer issue its “Choose Life” plates to motorists who wish to advertise their anti-abortion views.

He 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.”

The ruling is the result of a lawsuit filed against the State by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of residents seeking specialty license plates that supported the right to choose to have an abortion.

The “Choose Life” license plates were approved by the State’s legislature in 2011, but lawmakers rejected proposals for plates stating “Trust Women. Respect Choice” or “Respect Choice.”

“This is a great victory for the free speech rights of all North Carolinians, regardless of their point of view on reproductive freedom,” said Chris Brook, legal director of the ACLU-NCLF. “The government cannot create an avenue of expression for one side of a contentious political issue while denying an equal opportunity to citizens with the opposite view. We are very pleased that the court agrees that such a one-sided scheme constituted viewpoint discrimination and violated the First Amendment.”

Brook also said that the ACLU would have taken the same position had the situation been reversed.

    Although I’m pro-life and oppose abortion, I believe the court ruling on this was correct. When I first read the headline, misleading as usual, I thought it was something someone had had put on their personalized license plate. The state, really should not be advocating one way or another in this manner.

    • Vicki

      Since the state exists to protect life (liberty and the pursuit of happiness) it most certainly MUST be an advocate for that which it is to PROTECT.

      • Karolyn

        Right, Vicki, “liberty.” Liberty to voice all sides of an issue or none.

      • Vigilant

        One wonders why we even call ourselves the “United States of America” any longer, since state sovereignty is obviously no longer honored in the judicial system.

        This suit NEVER should have reached federal level, nor should it have been accepted by the court. The First Amendment deals exclusively with the reins placed on Congress, NOT the states. Someone needs to tell me what this issue has to do with the fact that “CONGRESS shall make no law…”

        The North Carolina Constitution is the governing document, and nothing else, pursuant to the 10th Amendment to the US Constitution.

      • Kate8

        Vigilant – I agree with you. Since when is our right to speak freely require that there is someone else to voice the opposite? What is preventing pro-abortion folks from requesting a license which states “choose death” if that’s what they want? I say, go ahead. Make that statement. Very telling, indeed. Just say what you mean. Don’t try to couch it with euphemisms. You only fool yourselves.

        And since when is anyone’s opinion influenced by a license plate? It’s a personal statement. Period. Not a government endorsement.

        I think we’ve long past the point of insanity. The Left is so insecure about the validity of their nonsensical obsession with controlling the minds (and lives) of everyone that they feel they must counter EVERY statement which does not agree with them.

        I say that we just ignore them and do what we want. It’s like raising a spoiled child…the more we try to placate them, the more out of control they get.

        I mean, when conservatives are outright dissed, where is the demand for THEM to be heard?

        The truth is, we all have the right to speak. But NO ONE has the RIGHT to be heard.

      • Steve E

        Karolyn is right. We have liberty to express both sides of the issue. The Choose Life plate is one point of view, but the Pro Choice plate would not be correct plate to counter since Pro Choice is not the opposite view of Pro Life because it gives a person a choice to choose Life or Death. So to remedy this case, NC should make two types of plates: “Choose Life” and Choose Death”. That should keep everyone satisfied.

      • Vigilant

        Kate8 says, “And since when is anyone’s opinion influenced by a license plate? It’s a personal statement. Period. Not a government endorsement.”

        Concur. Here in NY, the DMV site has the following:

        “New York’s Special Interest plates are divided into the following categories: Sports Teams; Causes and Organizations; Counties and Regions of New York State; Colleges, Fraternities and Sororities; Military and Veterans; Emergency Services; Professions; Personalized, Historical and Picture plates. The following is a list of some examples of special interest plates: NASCAR, NBA, Conserve Habitat, Discover Queens, Hudson Valley Region, Fordham University, Air National Guard, Air Force Reserve, Emergency Technician and New York State Dental Association.”

        Now, does having a NASCAR or college fraternity plate constitute endorsement by the state of NY? Does a Fordham University plate mean that NYS supports that institution to the exclusion of all others?

        I don’t think so. They are indeed personal statements, and the owner pays dearly to express that statement.

      • Vicki

        Kate8 writes:
        “The truth is, we all have the right to speak. But NO ONE has the RIGHT to be heard.”

        Quite true. And bears telling over and over. Freedom of assembly (from the same amendment) protects our right to hear the speaker AND the right to walk away.

      • Opal the Gem

        On the one hand I can see the reason for saying you must allow for a pro choice (death) plate if you allow a pro life plate. HOWEVER, this is a STATE matter not a federal matter. The feds are not paying for our plates nor or they issuing them the states do that with the exception of federally owned vehicles.

      • http://naver samurai

        As long as the person has the choice to buy it, why would the courts need to get involved at all? No one has said you must buy these plates. I think the reason why is to not only control free speech, but to keep people from showing they support life and not infanticide. Our founding fathers must be rolling over in their graves. Here is something about the pretender Obama bin Laden and his wanting infanticide to increase across this nation.

      Please keep in mind that nobody is actually “pro-abortion.”

      What those who are opposing the right wing religious nuts want is for women to have CHOICE so they can make their own decisions.

      The fact is that allegedly that brutal right wing god gave man free will. Presumable that also includes women. Who are mere mortals to take that away from women? In fact, it could be that there brutal god wants to see what each woman will commit to and those who interfear are messing with HIS will.

      • http://www.facebook.com/jack.sprate.92 Jack Sprate

        Robert please tell us how it is a choice to murder a baby????? There are laws against murder are they not. The bogus law to kill a baby should be overturned. Most libtards vehemently want the right to kill babies that is the bottom line get honest! They will have to answer to God someday for the millions and millions of babies killed and mostly for birth control!! Save a snail kill a human baby has the world gone insane!!!

      • clark

        I have a prophecy for you Robert. The day will come when your soul will be required to exit the mortal body you now reside in. Unless the GOD (that you renounce,) changes your way of seeing things, you will exit this world in absolute terror. There is nothing so fearful as no hope at all. May GOD have mercy on your soul.

      • Robert Smith

        Yup, the usual “god” arguments against abortion.

        Apparently they have forgotten that this is America where not everyone follows their brutal god.

        BTW, I reject your efforts to change me or my religion. If you continue I’ll consider it to be spiritual rape.

      • Kinetic1

        Jack,
        While many of us are debating what point after fertilization a fetus becomes a baby, you seem to have suggested that the egg it’s self is a human life. Please explain to me how you justify the difference between man causing the egg to leave a woman’s body before reaching fertilization and God’s natural method of the same that occurs every month?

        Oh, who am I kidding. I have long held that those who believe that fertilization is the beginning of life must fight Abortion on principle, and those who believe that life begins in the last trimester or at birth must fight for choice. But those of you who now want to argue that every egg and every sperm hold the spark of life and must therefore be protected by law are just so out there beyond reason that you must really consider finding another country that shares your views, or perhaps an Island where you can begin your own government. The idea that you should be able to set law for the rest of us is just too absurd to imagine.

      • Kate8

        For heaven’s sake, Robert. “Spiritual rape”? You sound like a prissy, namby-pamby, insecure, frightened, oh-so-sensitive and easily-offended homo-/metro-sexual empty shirt.

        You and your ilk are on notice: This PC idiocy is no longer going to fly. It’s a ruse you people use to club the sane, to produce cognitive dissonance.

        Grow a pair and stop aiding and abetting the enemies of freedom. You have been trained to obfuscate common sense in order to advance a hideous cause, for which you are paid.

        It’s all coming out now, about who you trolls are, your tactics, and what your ends are.

        It’s over, Rob (or smiley, or mark…or whichever name you use on any given post).

        It’s true, people. These trolls are paid by guv factions to disrupt, and to collect identities of conservative bloggers for investigation.

        I say that we just let them have it. Don’t hold back. They’ve already betrayed their countrymen. Their treason will not go unnoticed in the coming days.

      • Vigilant

        Kinetic1 says, “I have long held that those who believe that fertilization is the beginning of life must fight Abortion on principle, and those who believe that life begins in the last trimester or at birth must fight for choice.”

        What you have “long held” is not scientifically sustainable.

        Life does not begin at fertilization. Life, and in this instance, human life, began either thousands or millions of years ago, depending on your religious predilections.

        Human life has CONTINUED in that long thread, and fertilization represents merely a stage of that continuation. Babies are not created from inanimate matter, they occur via the joining of a LIVING sperm cell and a LIVING egg.

        I think Jefferson would have blanched if he had been forced to qualify his statement of Natural Law to read “Life after the second trimester, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

      • Vigilant

        Kinetic says, “Please explain to me how you justify the difference between man causing the egg to leave a woman’s body before reaching fertilization and God’s natural method of the same that occurs every month?”

        I will counter that with “Please explain to me how you justify the difference between man causing the death of a human being before reaching normal life span and God’s natural method of the same that occurs every day?”

      • Kate8

        Vigilant – Since a big goal of communism and other controlling isms is to have power over life and death, they must first make killing justifiable and even acceptable to those over whom they seek control.

        They’ve done a find job, too, especially with liberals. It’s just no big deal.

        In China, killing is no big deal. People are randomly killed every day and no one bats an eye. We’ve allowed ourselves to become nothing more than farm animals, subject to the life altering decisions of the ruling elite “farmers”. We follow the rules they’ve laid out for us from the moment of conception, as if it made any sense whatsoever.

        We must extract ourselves from the farm… declare ourselves free… and then dispense with the system. We have been socially engineered to be geared to our own demise…

        There is no better (or perhaps, other) way to regain our dignity as conscious beings than to honor Life in all forms, in all ways… and vow to do no harm, ever…

      • Vicki

        Jack Sprate says:
        “Robert please tell us how it is a choice to murder a baby?????”

        Of course it is the woman’s choice to murder her child. The REAL question of choice is with the baby. Where do liberals EVER consider the babies CHOICE? This proves the lie of Pro-Choice.

        If that is true then why are there so many abortions? If no one was actually “pro abortion” then there would be very very few of them and those would be strictly for medical reason not the convience of the person having one.

      • Robert Smith

        Awwwwwwwwww kate8… There you go again: “It’s over, Rob (or smiley, or mark…or whichever name you use on any given post).”

        It seems you just can’t see to accept the fact that I am one individual. There is only one “Rob” (Robert Smith) posting on this forum. I am posting as no others.

        Please note that Bob Livingston has information relating to e-mail addresses and ISP information that he has used to accuse others of being multiple personalities around here.

        I’ll freely admit that I use more than one computer to post. My home computer, a laptop, and sometimes another computer.

        I find it sad that Mr. Livingston will use the information to confirm that several names may have the same ISP (actually it’s easy to explain such that Sook Young and Samurai may be posting from the same computer because they are allegedly husband and wife) but I don’t have the same information to prove that I am but one poster on this forum. He has not used that information to confirm that myself (apparently from the left even though I don’t like gun control) am posting as “Rob” and no others. .

        So, your accusation can go down as another lie. I’ve explained this before.

        Why do you insist on attacking me rather than the issues I raise? Typical right wing tactic.

        momo asks: “Do you even have a religion Smith?”

        Yes.

        It’s personal, which is allowed in America. I don’t consider religion relevant to freedom in America, except when it is trying to oppress other Americans.

        I do not discuss it on forums like this.

        The first reason is because folks will reject it because I’m the one posting.

        The second reason is because folks will accept it because I’m posting.

        Folks need to make their own decisions about religion from information they dig up, NOT from opinions expressed in discussion forums.

It’s unappreciated by me as well as boorish and offensive and tiresome and predictable and, quite frankly, has reached a point to where I have considered on several occasions blacklisting you because of it.

          Best wishes,

        Then he says to his followers something like, “Follow me, and nobody else, or remain in a burning hell forever, but I love you.”

        Though it is true that God gave us free will, but it is not the way you describe it. Free will comes from the doctrine of free will and freedom to choose. This means do you choose to believe in God and to obey His will, yes or no. Not the ignorant rantings that you put on this thread. I’ve seen Bob Livingston’s responses to you, but yet you do not answer them. Why is that? Cat got your tongue? I hope that he does decide to blacklist you, though it wouldn’t be a proper punishment for one who follows the beliefs of a heretic, is an apostate Christian, and would just stand idly by while children are killed just because the woman doesn’t want to take responsibility for something she has done. You are a coward, traitor, and fool. When you stand before God to be judged and He asks you about these things you say, what would you tell Him? This will be right before your soul is cast into the lake of fire for eternal torment. Sook Young and I will pray for you. Another thing, stop with your nonsense about it being the American way. How is this the American way when we were founded a Christian nation? You lib/progtards are traitors to this country and to everything which it stands for. You say you served in Vietnam, but you tarnish any honor you earned by this constant bashing of God, Jesus, the Bible, Christianity, and anything moral and ethical. You attack the unborn, though you, yourself, admitted in a prior thread to supporting your ex-wife’s wishes to abort your own child. Why? Didn’t want to pay child support or take your responsibilities as a man must do? 5th columners like rights. 5th columners are all about love. They love poor people as long as they stay poor. They love choice as long as it is not in education, energy, healthcare, or commerce. They love rights as long as we are not talking about the rights of the unborn. They love minorities as long as they stay on the libtard/progtard plantation.

      “Respect Choice”?, Well I ask, where is that same “respect” for the small business owner,who wants to display his respect an belief in Christ Jesus, and display a nativity scene as a display of his/her belief/an birth of Christ Jesus, what about that Mr.Harold Olsen,and Mr. Chris Brook. Yeah,NO choice there,we as christians cannot have any beliefs,oh no we can,I’m sorry for that statement,we just have to keep our choices and beliefs to ourselves,silly me,my bad!!!!! No, seriously,it is almost to the point Christians and Conseratives have NO CHOICES, yeah,alot of you think we need to sit back and shut-up,well I think we have done that little diddy Long enough!!!! You tell me, our government has/is supporting,giving our tax dollars,so women can get a free abortion,we as christians very much disagree,we have No “Choice” there, either!!! And so Now,NC. government officals can not vote and have a “Choose Life” tag,Please!!!!!!!! Where is their “Choice” to do so? There again, Christians have Almost No Right to Choice,everything we “Choose” is Not a “Choice” that we as christian are allow to “Choose”, NO “CHOICE”!!!!!!!

        Well said Johnson and I agree 100% it is a hypocritical double standard out there for sure!

      • Kinetic1

        eJohnson,
        Oh pleeeeese, save the martyrdom. Go ahead, Google “business banned from displaying nativity scene” and see how many hits you get. Yes, as our population has become more diverse the issue of religious displays on government property has become more divisive, but no one is denying your right to display a creche in your shop window.

        So let’s get back to the real story here. Some citizens of North Carolina want to display their “Pro Life” beliefs on the back of their cars. Bumper stickers are no longer enough, so they want a license plate that makes the point. Those who believe in “Choice” argue that producing a plate for one and not the other is in essence promoting one side over the other. Since the issue is one based in religious beliefs and the Government is prohibited from promoting any one religion, they have no choice but to make both or none available. Now tell me, how is that denying you rights?

        “No, seriously,it is almost to the point Christians and Conseratives have NO CHOICES” Really? Right wing hatred is spewed out daily on most of the AM talk stations in this country. One station in our area even promotes Mark Levin and Michael Savage as their idea of “road rage”! FOX News devotes hours and hours to phony stories about the “war on Christmas”. New laws are being passed to protect your “right” to carry a concealed weapon into work, or church, or even a BAR! Now THERE’S a GREAT idea! How could anything go wrong in a room filled with people carrying loaded guns and drinking? Even the craziest of you who want to protest homosexuality at our fallen soldier’s funerals have had their right protected by our courts! And you want to argue that you have no choices?!? You can paint your stand against abortion over every inch of your car if you want. No one is stopping you. All they are saying is that you can’t buy a license plate promoting your beliefs unless the Pro Choice side has the same option.

      • Kate8

        e johnson – Well said, regardless of protests from the troll section.

        BTW, it is already in the works to MANDATE abortion when the guv so decides. This was inevitable, as that is how unpopular things are done. First they are “voluntary” (taxes?), and then, when enough people accept them, they become “mandatory”.

      • Vicki

        The important question to ask the “pro-choice” crowd is

        If you are REALLY pro choice then why do you never consider the CHILD’s choice?

        The answers are entertaining.

      • Opal the Gem

        “Since the issue is one based in religious beliefs and the Government is prohibited from promoting any one religion, they have no choice but to make both or none available.”

        this is a STATE issue and never should have been accepted by a federal court. When the feds pay for my license plate then they can tell me what to put on it otherwise they have NO say.

        I’ll presume for the sake of this argument that what’s inside any woman is a sentient being. I don’t believe that because early in pregnancy there aren’t even two brain cells to rub together so your “argument” that it’s able to talk doesn’t hold any water. Anyhow…

        Suppose you invited a sentient being into your home for a party. The night winds down and folks start go to home, but one decides that your home is a nice place and declares that he is going to stay there and YOU must supply all of his needs, including food, water, shelter, etc. He declared that he will remain with you for nine months, and by YOUR rules, because you asked him, he can stay there.

        How long would it be before you called a cop to remove him from your home? Would it be your right to shoot him if he continues trespassing and eating your food?

        Now, plant that “person” in your tummy. Do you really want to support that freeloader? Some say yes, some say no. That’s why CHOICE is important.

        Vicki,
        “If you are REALLY pro choice then why do you never consider the CHILD’s choice?”
        This is the sort of mean spirited, narrow minded comment that makes people question the “Pro-Life” crowd. Who says that we on the “Pro-Choice” side never consider the “choice” of the child/fetus? Ann Coulter is wrong. As has been stated numerous times, we do not worship at the alter of Abortion. No one I know WANTS an abortion just for the sake of having one. The decision is often a long, hard look at what might lay in store for both mother and child. Adoption is often a consideration, though it’s not as easy and concrete as many “Pro-Lifers” suggest.

        If you are truly looking for those who choose abortion as a tool of convenience, look no further than the Catholic Church. A study of teen age Catholics who had one or more abortions found that their beliefs drove them to abortions. They reasoned that, if contraception is a sin and abortion is a sin, then getting an abortion once a year was better than taking the pill every day. Twisted teen-age logic, but the church doesn’t help. Consider this from the Catholic News Agency,
        “While some forms of contraception, such as the condom or the diaphragm, are not themselves capable of destroying human life, (as are many chemical contraceptives, including forms of the Pill, the patch, and IUDs) they are a kind of “gateway drug” into the abortion mentality.”
        So now those of us who do not wish to get pregnant, even those of us who are married are risking an “abortion mentality” if we choose contraception? Even “Pro-Life” people are apparently risking having an abortion by engaging in the “Gateway drug” of sex with contraception! And you wonder why we don’t want you making laws for the rest of us to follow?

      • Kate8

        Once again, the Left works to evade the real issue.

        Firstly, what anyone BELIEVES about the beginning of life is wholly irrelevant. Belief is not truth, and is used only as an attempt to justify for one’s convenience. None of us ACTUALLY KNOWS when “spirit” enters the body, but it’s obvious that there is LIFE, or the child would not continue to develop.

        It is altogether possible that the spirit is contained within life itself, and is inseparable…

        Secondly, and the REAL ISSUE, is that government HAS NO PLACE MAKING THESE DETERMINATIONS. These are personal decisions, and the ramifications which are visited upon those who make them are personal, as well. If a woman so chooses to take the life of her offspring prior to birth, she will bear the consequence of that choice.

        Government ONLY inserts itself in such issues for the purpose of gaining more control, as they have. They now openly PROMOTE abortion as a viable means of population control, and are attempting to mandate abortion. (Robert, do a search on government to mandate abortion. You will pull up links. I will not do this for you.)

        Let each woman make this decision for herself, and allow practitioners to choose whether to perform them. The fact that fetal parts and tissue has become a HUGE market speaks to more diabolical implications of this whole horrific matter.

        Take government out of it altogether.

      • Kate8

        eddie – Just call “pro choice” what it is: the “right” to kill.

        Choice should be considered prior to the moment of conception. Everyone has the right to choose then.

        In the case of rape, measures can be taken right away. Again, the proper timing of “choice”.

        You people base your arguments on emotional talking points, while leaving our pertinent (and obvious) data. We all have choices. Timing is everything.

        And, of course, that dreaded word for liberals: ACCOUNTABILITY.

      • Vicki

        Quite true Kate8.

        The “pro-choice” people also ignore the CHOICE of the CHILD. They somehow claim that a woman’s right to not be inconvenienced by a bad choice is more important than the child’s right to LIVE.

        The actual excuse is that the child is not a child yet so even they know the hypocrisy of their position.

      • Robert Smith

        Kate8 points out: “And, of course, that dreaded word for liberals: ACCOUNTABILITY.”

        Yup, like Universal Health Care. But oops, “pro-life” is simply jargon for anti-choice. It has absolutely nothing to do with babies. If it did they would make sure that the baby would be taken care of after it’s born.

        BTW, in Canada where they have universal health care, including birth control, they have a higher percentage of women carrying to term. First because because of birth control they only get pregnant when they want to, and another reason is that they know that if they give birth it will be taken care of.

        Check out: “A dramatic new study with implications for next month’s presidential election finds that offering women free birth control can reduce unplanned pregnancies — and send the abortion rate spiraling downward.”

        That’s from: http://vitals.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/10/04/14224132-free-birth-control-cuts-abortion-rate-dramatically-study-finds?lite

        Here is a bit more to chew on from the same article: “But to academic experts, the results of CHOICE are clear. “What the study suggests to me,” said John Santelli, professor at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health, “is that it’s totally supportive of the president’s provisions on reproductive care and preventive services for women in the Affordable Care Act.”

You can’t cover all the needs no matter how hard you try and then the government may have to step in . Those women seeking an abortion are actually doing you a service because charities don’t have enough money to handle more and you won’t allow the government to step in and help.

        A few facts here Ed and Rob. 1. The words choice, choose, freedom of choice, or freedom to choose do not appear in the Constitution. 2. All abortion is about is population control, eugenics, and about women who would rather keep up their immoral lifestyles instead of living up to their responsibilities. 3. It is their choice to have sex with no protection. Ergo, their choice, their child, their responsibility. No exceptions! No excuses! No straying from the straight and narrow path. Ooops! It seems Rob has already done the straying. Here is one to all post abortion women:

        Not to mention paying for the Orwellian police state we are now finding ourselves under. Once again, your guy.

        And FYI, I have NEVER supported wars, either. Nope. No more than I support O’care. However, being FORCED to pay for a war does not have the same personal impact that being FORCED to purchase healthcare (which I do not believe in) does. This affects our choices on a very personally intrusive level, which goes beyond the very boundaries of our skin.

        Like I said…Why can’t those of you who WANT socialized healthcare go ahead and do it among yourselves, leaving the rest of us be. THAT would be CHOICE.

        Also FYI, the majority of Americans do NOT want O’care, yet the few of you who do think it’s okay to RAM IT DOWN OUR THROATS.

      Phil,
      The ACLU was created in the 1920s to protect those who were vocal about their opposition to WWI. Back then the courts seemed uninterested in the Bill of Rights and regularly upheld cases against those who spoke out. Since then they’ve championed the rights of Jehovah’s Witnesses not to say the pledge of allegiance and those of the American Nazi Party to march in Selma. Now why would you doubt their willingness to argue for your right to free speech as well as mine?

I object to government involving me in someone’s personal choices, forcing me to pay for them.

        Get a clue, Robert. You are grossly misled in so many ways. You seem to think that you and your ilk have some kind of innate right to a share of the earnings of others just because you exist. Perhaps you should consider that your life is worth no more than that of those children you so callously would deprive of their lives. Perhaps you might consider what will become of you when the government decides YOU’VE become inconvenient (or unsustainable).

        Robert you can try all you want but you can never justify the killing of a baby at any stage of life. As a matter of fact many babies are killed up to 3rd trimester called partial birth abortion. They allow the baby to be partially born with the head still stuck inside of the vagina, they they insert instruments inside of the vagina and around the babies head. They them crush the head brains and all and i imagine the baby will try to scream but cannot.. It can feel pain!!! This is barbaric how far will America sink???

        It is murder pure and simple no matter how you or anyone tried to color this!

      • Robert Smith

        Hey Jack here you go: “It is murder pure and simple no matter how you or anyone tried to color this!”

        Quit lying. In America abortion is mostly legal. “Murder” is a legal term. Please make sure to clarify that it may be “murder” in your religion, but for the rest of us it’s a simple medical procedure.

        BTW, your bogus PBA has been pretty much outlawed. That means that some women who actually need to have an abortion because something has gone horrifically wrong with a fetus that in all likelihood was WANTED can’t have the best medical procedure for her circumstance.

        I find it very sad that because of religion the local gas jockey can play doctor and tell women what procedures can and can’t be used.

      • jt

        robert, a life is a life, regardless of a particular developmental stage. A separate individual is created when sperm meets egg at the moment of conception, That is not some religious re-interpretation of reality. It is a simple fact of biology, and is medically proven.

        Maybe the anti-lifers should consider self-aborting. After all, it’s just a “simple medical procedure”, right?

      • jt

        And BTW Robby: Murder may indeed be a legal term, but that does not preclude it’s use in other-than-legal capacities. In other words, it is not ONLY a legal term, and therefore cannot be pigeonholed into a specific use, as you so pathetically attempted to do. The word “murder” has been around long before it’s use in U.S. legislation.

        You do not get to define how others frame their side of the debate, so you seek to invalidate their choice of verbiage.

      • jt

        eddie: obama is on record as specifically advocating the use of partial birth abortion, in addition to the prohibition, by statute, of any attempt to preserve the life of any infant who survives a partial birth abortion. This is a human rights abomination, and so is he.

        Too bad you didn’t say “human life.”

        Here is what you posted: “robert, a life is a life, regardless of a particular developmental stage.”

        Here is some bible babble via Dan: “In Exodus 21:22 it states that if a man causes a woman to have a miscarriage, he shall be fined; however, if the woman dies then he will be put to death. It should be apparent from this that the aborted fetus is not considered a living human being since the resulting punishment for the abortion is nothing more than a fine; it is not classified by the bible as a capital offense.”

        Oh my! Look what else Dan found: “Numbers 5 describes “the Lord” ordering an abortion. Many argue that this is a misinterpretation. It’s clearly stated in verse 22, “May this water that brings a curse enter your body so that your abdomen swells or your womb miscarries.””

        Well… Abortion is mostly legal in most of America.

        If you want to call it “murder” please define what other context you are applying that label in. For most I’ll bet it’s in a religious context.

        Since the choice to abort results in the death of the child you most certainly are pro-death.

    The lack of authority of tyrannical federal judges who make judgments in areas where there is no federal authority, like in restricting the historical practice of the Christian religion. If federal judges rule in areas not contained in the constitution, they are legislating or adding to the Constitution without it being amended.
    The most important things to remember are:
    •The Constitution only confers judicial power to the courts.
    •The Judiciary has NO legislative power.
    Article. I, Section 1, (the 1st sentence of the Constitution) says:
    All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, …
    •Just like legislative powers above are restricted to those herein granted,
    • Judicial Power extends to cases arising under this Constitution.
    • Federal judicial power is not conferred to cases NOT covered under the Constitution.
    • Federal laws and treaties shall be made under constitutional authority – no authority – no law – no treaty!
    •The Constitution establishes the Supreme Court.
    •Congress establishes the lower courts.
    •Congress establishes regulations, and sets such exceptions for court rulings as they see fit.
    •Judges, “…shall hold their Offices during good Behaviour, …”
    •Exceeding their authority, or violations of their oath to protect and defend the US Constitution should be considered a violation of good behavior.

    This information needs to be thoroughly understood in order to be able to hold our elected and appointed officials accountable through the proper interpretation of our Constitution.

    • Robert Smith

      Posted: “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, ”

        Hamilton went on to say, in Federalist 78, pg. *313-314:
        “The judiciary may be said to have neither FORCE nor WILL, merely judgment.
        “The judiciary, … can take no active resolution whatever.”

        Madison warned in Federalist 47, pg. *198-199:
        “Were the power of judging joined with the legislative, … the judge, would then be the legislator. Were it joined to the executive power, the judge might behave with all the violence of an oppressor.”

        Hamilton also said, in Federalist 78, pg. *314:
        “Every act of a delegated authority that is contrary to its commission is void.”

        Our Constitution should only be changed through amendment where 3/4 of all the states have to agree. See Article V of the US Constitution. That is the only way for the people to retain control through their state legislatures.

        Changing the Constitution in any other way falls out side of Constitutional authority and is a usurpation of unauthorized Constitutional power.

    Make the “Choose Life” plate optional, the pro-aborts/death wackos can get the regular plate…

    • jt

      czman75:

      I’m pretty sure the “Choose Life” plates ARE optional. What the anti-life crowd is whining about is the unavailability of an optional plate in support of THEIR “views”.

      I notice they have NO problem with forced taxpayer funding of abortions by planned parenthood, et al, while there is NO taxpayer funding for pro-life groups. How about that. And while they support government taking taxoayer dollars and using them for abortions (denying any TAXPAYER choice), they also support FORCING private-sector institutions to PAY FOR things like contraception, thereby denying (once again) the right to choose for those who oppose it on moral grounds. And after all this, they invent the “war on women” campaign, while the REAL “war on women” is being waged by the pro-abortion crowd. I’m fairly certain that approximately HALF of all those lives snuffed out by abortion are women’s lives (MILLIONS). So who’s waging open war on women NOW?

      So, if all things MUST be equal, then either start giving equal dollars to pro-life groups, or rescind ALL taxpayer funding of planned parenthood, and ALL other abortion providers and advocacy groups. They only want “fairness” and “equal footing”, except where the lack thereof benefits THEM.

        What services do these organizations provide that would justify Federal funding? Planned Parenthood provides caner screenings, AIDs testing, birth control and yes, to a much smaller degree abortion services. Even if you disagree with a women’s right to choose you can’t really disagree with cancer screening and AIDs testing, can you?

        I’ve been to the “National Right to Life” web site and from what I can tell they seem to be nothing more than an anti-abortion lobby. Since the Federal government does not fund lobbying groups for the purpose of lobbying the House and Senate, why would you expect them to receive funding?

        You, YOU suggested the concept of all things being equal. I am not aware of any pro-choice lobbying groups who receive Federal funding for the purpose of lobbying, only those like Planed Parenthood who perform medical services in some of the most needed places in our country. You suggested that, to be equal the Feds should “start giving equal dollars to pro-life groups”. All I asked was why? What do they do that makes them “equal”?

        jt says: “The fact remains that obamacare fails to address the main problem of the fundamental costs associated with healthcare.”

        Do you mean like no bid pharmaceutics? Oops, that was Bush.

        Do you mean like $8.00 for an aspirin? Oops, that’s BIG CORPORATIONS.

        Do you mean like greedy doctors? Oops, again that’s capitalism.

        And then there are doctors who work for the military, Catholic hospitals, Shrine hospitals…

        So, how do we REGULATE health care costs?

        From Vickie: “Alas Obamacare will strip you of that right and the right of practitioners of health care to provide it to you.”

        Absolutely FALSE compared to what we have today. It’s CORPORATIONS who are making health care decisions. Their mission is to KEEP COSTS DOWN, IOW, deny treatment at every turn they can.

        BTW, have you seen how little choice because of expense it is to go “outside plan?”

        That is the mission of INSURANCE not Health Care. You really ought to keep the 2 consepts straight. It would make the discussion a LOT LESS confusing to people.

        And yes I fall into the same trap sometimes. I will try to do better.

        It is only expensive because insurance companies pool large groups of people to pay exorbitant prices for the few who may need it.

      • eddie47d

        No its expensive because of the cost of paying CEOs huge salaries. May I remind you of that United Healthcare Executive who retired with a 1 billion 400 million dollar pension. That alone would sink many a company. Its outrageous and it is still going on.

        Prima facie evidence that liberals (at least eddie47d) have no concept of even the most basic economics.

        The CEO asked for and got that salary. United Healthcare earned enough money to pay that salary. United Health care earned that much money because they were able to get that much money from their customers. United Health care is an insurance company. http://www.uhc.com/

        So now with ObamaCare (If United plays ball with the government) United Health Care stands to get a bunch more customers because the government will require individuals to buy approved health insurance.

        Crony Capitalism at its finest.

        Btw Eddie. If you don’t like the salary being paid the CEO of a company then just get on the board (or buy 51% of the voting stock) and fire the CEO and hire one that is willing to take what you plan to offer to him/her.

      • eddie47d

        That’s the problem with the Vickie’s who think those CEOs deserve what ever they ask for. Yet the Vickie’s never question why medicine and health care cost so much. Damn two faced hypocrites and thieves. I would call you out as an accomplice to price gouging hospital patients and prescription consumers.

    Other than prove that yet another fed judge has sold his arse to Uncle Scammy, this article will get nothing done, folks. You’ll get more accomplished by researching generational VOTER FRAUD in North Carolina (Alabama and Mississippi and overeas military ballots).
    It’s pointless to debate with a utopian when the topic concerns “morality.” Save some wear and tear on your emotions, and tell a utopian face-to-face that he or she is a willing accomplice to Hitler’s concentration death camps, and that the ONLY difference between WW II and now is the location. WHAT can you say when the KKK crowd, Obummer and Planned NonParenthood are chasing votes and committing wholesale MURDER?
    Oddly enough, the KKK crowd will tell you that THEY do what they do because they’re ‘patriotic.’ On the other criminal hand, Obummer and Planned NonParenthood do it for easy VOTES, MONEY and P O W E R.

      Really? Shall we take a walk through some more history? We can begin in Salem, MA.

      Back on the continent there were inquisitions, crusades, and all sorts of mayhem.

      All in the name of a god that killed everyone except Noah and his kin, blew up a couple of cities, got a virgin preggers, and had his kid tortured to death.

        Is your whole life dedicated to attacking Christians? What do you know about Islam? Nothing? Why don’t you educate yourself? Oh, I get it. Insult Islam and muslims will kill you, whereas, Christians, not so much. Coward.

      • Robert Smith

        Guess asks: “Is your whole life dedicated to attacking Christians?”

        No.

        In fact I only attack those “christians” who use the bible babble as an excuse to attack others. In fact I appreciate the fact that most Christians are good Americans who support freedmoms and understand the difference between those who are part of their flock and those who are trying to impose their beliefs upon others.

        in other forums I attack anyone who opposes freedoms in America. Sadly you apparently aren’t willing to understand that I oppose anyone who restricts freedoms in America.

        I’m sure you might understand the difference between a riight wing effort and real christanity. If not, oh well. Bow before Rush Limbaugh.

        Let them try. I have my carry permit, just as I say to the extreme right wing that kills doctors.

        The evil of the muslims isn’t attacking me here light the reich wing is. When they do I’ll respond to them as I do the extreme reich wing.

    From Kenetic: “All they are saying is that you can’t buy a license plate promoting your beliefs unless the Pro Choice side has the same option.”

    My beliefs are pro-choice.

    It is her decision. That’s not “pro-death.” If she should decide to choose pro-life and carry to term that is OK with me as long as that was her choice.

    So, at worst I’m olnly 50% against the pro-life extremists.

  • Kate8

    This thread was about license plates.

    I don’t see how ANYTHING on a license plate can be deemed unConstitutional. The rulings by these idiots just gets more and more asinine.

    • Kinetic1

      Kate8,
      License plates are issued by the State Government. The design is decided by the Government and as such can be viewed as support for the subject portrayed. If the State should choose to print plates with a Muslim theme and not a Christian or Jewish theme, I’m certain Christians would be up in arms. Abortion is primarily a religious issue as it has as it’s foundation a conflict over beliefs regarding the moment “life” begins. Since the government is prohibited from promoting one religion over another (or any) producing only the “Pro-Life” plate implies support of one belief over another. Could it be any more clear?

      • Kate8

        Kinetic – That is utter nonsense. The government issues biased, partisan and offensive things into the public domain all the time.

        Also consider, just WHO IS THE GOVERNMENT? It is supposed to be THE PEOPLE in America. The People have free speech. No exceptions (so long as there is no harm to another).

        I don’t care what anyone has on a license plate. I may have an opinion about it, but I still don’t care. I can’t see why anyone would care. It has ZERO impact on ANYTHING.

        You liberals seem to think that the government is supposed to be BigBrother and rule over we mindless livestock. Nothing could be further from the truth. THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO WORK FOR US.

    From the article: The government cannot create an avenue of expression for one side of a contentious political issue…While denying an equal opportunity to citizens with the opposite view.

    I wasn’t aware that that was the role of Government to begin with. Unless of course, the issue is politically self-serving…err i mean, politically-contentious…?

    Article: We are very pleased that the court agrees that such a one-sided “scheme” constituted viewpoint discrimination and violated the First Amendment.”

    Scheme? Interesting choice of “word” from the ACLU…the foremost missionary organization of Abortionism and related cults such as evangelical-paganism. Variously known as atheists, communists and liars-unscrupulous; anti-Christian litigation union and abortionite-confraternity of litigious ultra-leftists. An organization devoted to destroying the moral foundations of American society by eradicating the influence of religion from public life.

    Article:“ This is a great victory for the free speech rights of all North Carolinians, regardless of their point of view on reproductive freedom,” said Chris Brook, legal director of the ACLU-NCLF.

    A great victory for the free speech rights? Ha! Rather, a shameful victory for the ACLU.

    The “pro-choice” crowd need only place an order, Kenetic1.

    • Kinetic1

      WTS/JAY
      Place an order for what? If the state does not offer a plate with a “Pro-Choice” graphic, what are they to order?

      • http://gravatar.com/bychoosing WTS/JAY

        You are correct, Kinetic1; my apologies!

  • gunner689AI

    The judge is correct. The pro-abortion side should have their own liscense plates. I would suggest a picture of a murdered (aborted) infant in a medical trash bin. Let the world see that you believe in murdering children. Be proud, say it loud. Don’t keep us guessing as to what you are and what you believe.
    PC is BS

  • Dave67

    I am curious… why don’t men who are anti-choice get a vasectomy? That way, they can do their part to end abortion. I know they like to use religious dogma to impose their will on women but maybe they can take… whats it called? Oh yeah… personal responsibility to help end abortion by getting a vasectomy…. after all it takes two to tango.

    In this country, Viagra is covered by insurance, until the HC law got passed, Women’s birth control was not. Very telling on who has control and who like to keep who under their thumb.

    Come on anti-choicers… Put the scissors where your vas defrens are and help end abortion.

    • sam1966

      That is because the biological roles are that the man gets the woman pregnant and the woman has the child, but only if they are married. Since you wish to make this suggestion, why don’t you step up to the plate and be first in line? We won’t mind there being fewer people like you. Here is something dealing with the Obama bin Laden Care that you 5th columners want.

        Ok Sam, if that is your real name…. The people that have screwed this country for the past 30 years believed in god and were white. So your last part is utter BS.

        Since you can’t deal with the hypocrisy of conservative males… you attack me. Typical of a conservative parrot.

      • http://naver samurai

        Wrong, wrong, wrong Dave 67. Remember, the ones that have been “screwing” this country for the past 30 years are the libtards, progtards, queers, secularists, atheists, socialists, and any other group that would be classified as being part of the 5th column. I attack you due to your ignorance and not knowing how this country was founded a Christian nation and wanting to continue down the wrong path.

    Lets have a contest to design a pro-abortion Lis. plate for North Carolina. I’ve already made my suggestion, lets hear some more. This should be fun !

    • gunner689AI

      alright, I’ll give another suggestion to start the contest off. A cartoon picture of a smiling woman with her legs spread apart. Beside her is a little cross for each abortion she’s had. No, that won’t work. The pro-abortion women and the ACLU would complain about the crosses since neither believe in God. How about baby sized garbage cans for each abortion ?

  • Franklyn Molina

    Isn’t this unconstitutional in and of itself? What’s more, something like this was already tried with the Fairness Doctrine, and it failed miserably. They tried to bring that back and it was voted down, thank god. So you have one side of the story, yes, but you can’t force someone to bring in the other side. You can say whatever you want, but nobody has to listen.
