California to Offer New Pro-Abortion License Plates

California to Offer New Pro-Abortion License Plates


California lawmakers are attempting to pass a new bill that would give citizens access to pro-abortion license plates, according to The Mercury News.

State Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson (D-Santa Barbara), is the sponsor of the new bill. She explained what it aims to accomplish: “SB 309 will provide a way for Californians who are deeply troubled by the federal attack on women’s rights and health care to take their values ‘to the street’ while providing a vital funding mechanism for California’s network of reproductive health care providers.”

The cost of getting one of the license plates would be $50 in the first year and less in subsequent years. The fee would go to fund pro-choice efforts.

The bill has yet to be passed in the state Legislature and signed by Gov. Jerry Brown, but both California’s Legislature and Gov. tend to lean pro-abortion. To go into effect, there also needs to be at least 7,500 pre-paid orders for the license plates.

Pro-lifers are disappointed in the bill and argue that it is unfair for California to offer a pro-abortion license plate and not a pro-life one.

Other states offer pro-abortion plates, but most also offer pro-life ones. 

Wynette Sills, director of Californians for Life, acknowledged that pro-lifers have an uphill battle in the state. She even said that the chance of the state allowing a pro-life plate is “an impossibility--barring a miracle.”
