Massachusetts Choose Life License Plates

Massachusetts Drivers Can Now Choose Life and a License Plate

Joining Virginia and over 20 other states, Massachusetts drivers will now be able to buy pro-life license plates.

Except for administration costs, its proceeds will go not to the state of Massachusetts, but to crisis pregnancy centers that essentially do everything possible — coercing women to have and view ultrasounds or just flat-out lie — to ensure women "choose" life.

While it may sound surprising that the bluest of blue states would allow this, Massachusetts has nothing to do with the decision. It's all the work of one woman. Merry Nordeen has been working, and praying, for seven years to make the plate a reality. All it took was a $100,000 bond posted to protect the state from financial loss (returned if 3,000 plates sell in the first two years), and applications and fees from at least 1,500 drivers.


Considering any charitable organization can do this, now we know how some of these weird license plates came about. Check out some of the strangest below.

Mix tape - Ditto. I just moved to Florida, too many license plates! In California, they're getting a new one. It's a Spay/Neuter one, I do look forward to that. I'm keeping my California plate, so I may have to get it. I should get a sticker on my car that says: "Pro-life? Go Veg" :) Personally though, I wouldn't want political things on car, in fear of retaliation. That wouldn't be too bad.

i don't see why the pet overpopulation is strange either.. its a massive problem that includes animals cramped in poop filled cages with 15 other animals until its their turned to be killed. We need more owners who adopt from shelters and spay and neuter their animals to prevent this. Anything that draws attention to this is a good thing.

As an Oklahoman, I think you should know the "Gold Star Parent" plate is for parents who's child was KILLED IN ACTION, and the K.I.A plate is for the spouses of someone who was Killed In Action.To get either plate you have to show documentation proving the fact. Sugar, if you do your research you can see that they really aren't funny at all.... Now, the NRA one, that's one we can make fun of!

And another thing... pro-life license plates get a full story, but Kagan's view on abortion only gets a speed-read? Tres you need to get your priorities straightened out.

SKG not all pro-lifers are anti-choice, thank you. There is a difference. Why is it that every time an abortion-related article pops up here, someone starts throwing around the a-word? Why is there such constant disrespect for pro-lifers on this site? I would never post my political beliefs on my car, license plate or bumper sticker. Seriously I don't want someone to mess with my car over something like that. Just give me a few random letters and numbers and I'll be happy.

@mix tape Haha... North Carolina is also horrible when it comes to all of the different specialty plates. We even have a Florida Gators one. It annoys me every time I see it. It has nothing to do with North Carolina! Ugh! And I swear I saw a Disney World plate on a car the other day, but it could have just been a novelty plate they were trying to pass off as the real thing (!!) But I do want a Friends of the Smokies plate.. But then when I was looking through all the different options I came across the "Shag Dance" plate that has I'd rather be shagging on it... or there is a Watermelon association one that just has a huge watermelon on it... So I'm thinking if I ever get a specialty plate I just want the other drivers to be like wtf whenever they're behind me :)

Why do people put their political views on license plates and bumper stickers? Do they expect people to pull them over and have a conversation about it? Seems silly. I'm pissed off enough while driving. I don't need to see this crap on some sef-righteous person's car.

Florida is the WORST at license plates. I don't even know how many specialty plates we have, but it's beyond reasonable. I hate that ugly yellow pro-choice one too. It's obnoxious, and I don't necessarily mean the message, I just mean the child draw picture on a yellow background.
