Florida is so much in the abortion news these days. Now comes word the Orlando National Organization for Women has chosen the design for a pro-abortion plate to counter what NOW calls the "notorious" and wildly successful Choose Life plate.
(231,608 Florida Choose Life plates have been sold in the seven years it has been available, earning almost $5 million toward adoption support. It currently ranks eighth out of 120 FL specialty plates.)
The pro-abortion plate is entitled, "United for Choice." Its illustration shows a baby star shooting heavenward from inside the mommy star, pathetic and disgusting.
I do find it rather interesting of the seeming religious component of the baby star shooting heavenward. Do products of conception, tissue masses, non-humans, etc go to Heaven by their understanding? But the graphic obfuscation goes right along with the linguistic gymnastics used like ‘choice’ to say something without invoking the reality of what you are supporting. Though I am surprised they didn’t select a slogan like "Choose Choice" I will be curious as to how many people actualy choose such a plate. The Choose Life plates are fairly common and I am always glad to see a high percentage of them in church parking lots, hopefully I won’t see any of the new ones there.
Here are some of the pro-abortion plates that didn’t get selected.
