In a lawsuit filed by the ACLU on behalf of pro-abortionists, a federal judge ruled that it was unconstitutional for North Carolina to issue pro-life license plates unless they also issued ones appealing to abortion proponents. A North Carolina Fox affiliate reported:
“U.S. District Court Judge James C. Fox ruled on Friday that North Carolina cannot produce or distribute the ‘Choose Life’ plate. Judge Fox concluded, ‘The State’s offering of a Choose Life license plate in the absence of a pro-choice plate constitutes viewpoint discrimination in violation of the First Amendment.’ The American Civil Liberties Union of North Carolina Legal Foundation had filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina in Sept. 2011 on behalf of North Carolinians seeking a specialty license plate that supports a woman’s right to reproductive freedom.”
It’s “viewpoint discrimination” if the state doesn’t issue “Choose Death” plates as well? How is it unconstitutional not to issue such license plates? Where in the First Amendment does it mandate that every viewpoint be allowed equal representation? If that’s the case that the First Amendment mandates that every viewpoint be given equal representation, than what about prayer in schools, teaching creation in schools or hanging the Ten Commandments in court rooms?
