Special license plates; TRUST WOMEN/RESPECT CHOICE.  Authorizes the issuance of revenue-sharing special license plates bearing the legend: TRUST WOMEN/RESPECT CHOICE. The annual surcharge for these plates would be $25, instead of the standard $10 for most other nonrevenue sharing special license plates. For each set of plates issued (after the first 1,000 sets), $15 will go to Planned Parenthood to provide women's health services in Virginia. Read the Bill »

I don't have any problem with this particular license plate, but I do think that this business of political license plates needs to be slowed. Get a bumper sticker.

Let's hope the Senate finds it in their heart to Trust Women/Respect Choice.

The men of the House of Delegates feel that they can decide where the funds from these plates go. They don't even trust women enough to allow them to chose who gets their money. This is the only time I can ever remember the plate sponsor not getting to chose where the special funds go.

It's sad that our culture allows a license plate that suggests that trusting women justifies murder. I'll never get a chance to trust the woman or man they are aborting. It's rather a sick choice if you really think about what is real. I choose not to trust a woman that thinks the choice of murder is right one. I will pray you choose adoption.
