Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life Praises Court Ruling Allowing Tennessee's "Choose Life" License Plates


Priests for Life




“That ‘Choose Life’ license plates in Tennessee could bother the ACLU and Planned Parenthood so much that they tried to have a court ban the plates only shows the depths of the pro-abortion mindset,” states Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life.  “Life is a precious gift to be promoted and cherished, not an ‘issue’ to be countered by an opposing viewpoint.”

Fr. Pavone’s comments are in response to a decision Friday by the U.S. Court of Appeals’ Sixth Circuit allowing Tennessee to offer license plates that read “Choose Life.”  The state legislature voted in 2003 to sell the plates, with half the profits going to the state and half given to dozens of specified groups that offer counseling and financial assistance to pregnant women.  The ACLU and Planned Parenthood had previously obtained an order to enjoin production of the plates. 

“The Court of Appeals ruling restores common sense,” declares Fr. Pavone.  “The right of a state, a driver, or anyone else to say ‘choose life’ should never be called into question.”

Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit
