The Pro-Death agenda in New York

From New York News Day...

In arguments Monday over a growing national phenomenon, New York state tried to put the brakes on a lawsuit accusing it of unconstitutionally banning the phrase "Choose Life" from customized vehicle license plates.

New York Assistant Solicitor General Jennifer Grace Miller told the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that the phrase was an anti-abortion message that might lead to road rage if it were put on vehicles.

A lawyer for the pro-adoption group Children First Foundation Inc., Jeff Shafer, said the state attorney general's office was trying to defend the state for rejecting speech it did not like.

"They turned it down because of the message," he told a three-judge panel. "They disagreed with the message."

Judge Dennis Jacobs suggested that allowing the phrase on license plates would open the forum to many expressions, some dangerous.

In other words, if people are reminded that Life is a choice one can make, bigots might be violent, therefore society should surrender to the idiocy and censor what those bigots oppose. Why even have laws if that's the way you want thing to work?
