New York Court Gives Choose Life License Plate a Victory | DF Senior Legal Counsel Jeff Shafer told LifeNews today that he’s glad the appeals court has now sided with the Choose Life plates. “Pro-adoption organizations have the right to a specialty license plate on the same terms as any other organization, and the court’s decision affirms that,” he said. “The state is not authorized to censor The Children First Foundation for its life-affirming viewpoint, but it has gotten away with doing so for 10 years now since the application was first submitted.”
