Salutation: Dear Senator/Representative _______________
The Honorable ___________
Please support a bill to create a "Choose Life" specialty license plate in Oregon during the next state legislative session beginning in January 2015.
The "Choose Life" plate would send a wonderful message that promotes compassionate alternatives to abortion, including adoption, and it would raise funds to help pregnant women experiencing crisis pregnancies.
The Choose Life license plates have been very successful in many other states. Currently twenty-nine states and the District of Columbia offer these plates, raising over $19 million for the cause. The plate is extremely popular with over 900,000 plates being sold or renewed since the first plate went on the road in Florida in 2000.
I ask that you commit to seeing that the Choose Life license plate becomes a reality in Oregon.
