MADISON, Wis. — The Wisconsin Assembly is poised to pass a bill that would create anti-abortion license plates that would generate money for adoptions.
The Republican measure would create plates that read "Choose Life" and feature an image of an infant's footprint. Purchasers would have to pay both the annual $75 vehicle registration fee and a $15 special plate fee. They'd also have to pay another $25 that would go to Choose Life Wisconsin Inc., a corporation that anti-abortion groups Wisconsin Family Action and Pro-Life Wisconsin have set up to funnel money to crisis pregnancy centers' adoption programs.
The Assembly is scheduled to vote on the bill during a floor session set to start Thursday afternoon. Republicans control the chamber, making passage all but certain.
