Planned Parenthood of the Heartland failed to prevent a pro-life license plate from being offered in Nebraska earlier this year, so now they're proposing a license plate of their own. They've unveiled a "My Body, My Choice" license plate for those people who think a woman's body consists of two heads, four arms, and twenty toes.
The Choose Life plate cleared the legislature by a landslide vote of 35-5 and Governor Pete Ricketts (R) said “It symbolizes that you’re not alone,” he said. “And it says Nebraska is a pro-life state.” Lauren Williams, an advocacy strategist for Planned Parenthood Lincoln South Health Center, felt otherwise, saying “Our response on this issue is that Planned Parenthood does not believe taxpayers should have to subsidize political statement license plates, and we are disappointed the legislature felt otherwise."
In a statement released Thursday, they seemed to feel just fine with taxpayers subsidizing political statement license plates.
'My Body, My Choice’ license plates are an opportunity for Nebraskans to voice their own opinion on issues of women’s health – opinions that don’t necessarily reflect the opinion of the governor, lieutenant governor and some senators,” said Meg Mikolajczyk, associate general counsel and senior public affairs manager for PPHeartland. “After all, the majority of Nebraskans and Americans overall believe that a woman should maintain her right to reproductive choice as established under Roe v. Wade.
The license plates are now available online, but take a little longer to print - and an extra $70.
