Appeals Court Considers Request for Pro-Life License Plates in New Jersey
But the effort is causing some legal headaches as well. Anti-abortion groups in several states are suing to demand plates bearing the message: "Choose Life."
In a case before a federal appeals court Tuesday, New Jersey officials argue the slogan does not meet their program's guidelines. The Children First Foundation, a New-York anti-abortion group, says the state is violating its free-speech rights.
Federal courts around the country have split on the issue. The three-judge panel did not indicate when it would rule on the New Jersey case.
