WILL HILLARY CLINTON OK “CHOOSE LIFE” LICENSE PLATE?

The following letter was sent today to Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton by Catholic League president William Donohue:

Hon. Hillary Rodham Clinton

U.S. Senate

476 Russell Senate Office Building

Washington, D.C. 20510

Dear Senator Clinton:

Your remarks of January 24 on the subject of abortion are quite welcome.  In particular, I welcome your quest for a “common ground” and your strong support for programs that promote adoption.

In light of your position on this subject, I am requesting that you formally endorse the effort by the Children First Foundation to get the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to approve a “Choose Life” license plate.  Unfortunately, the DMV, which has issued plates for various non-profit organizations, has denied the “Choose Life” license plate because it is deemed too controversial.  That is why this issue is currently before the courts; a decision by the U.S. District Court in Syracuse is not expected until August.

The Children First Foundation is a pro-adoption organization based in Eastchester, New York.  Without question, it represents the values and policies you recently embraced.  To have your support for this measure would mean a great deal to many New Yorkers, and that is why I am respectfully urging you to endorse it.

Sincerely,

William A. Donohue, Ph.D.
President
