Yesterday, the 34th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, US District judge David Coar ordered the Illinois secretary of state's office to start cranking out "Choose Life" license plates by the end of February. Choose Life Illinois filed the lawsuit after failing twice to get the General Assembly to approve an anti-abortion plate. Proceeds from the plates will support adoption services. No word yet on whether we'll also get the option of a pro-choice plate.
