Dear Friends,

Great News! HB 1020, the Choose Life Specialty License Plate to promote adoption has passed the Arkansas legislature and was signed into law by Governor Huckabee on March 4, 2003. It took effect on July 16, 2003, and the plates will be available in September 2003.

Official Choose Life License Plate Mike Huckabee Rose MimmsI hope that you will consider purchasing an official Choose Life Arkansas vehicle license for the rear of your car when it becomes available through the Department of Finance and Administration. You can download an Order Form here in Adobe PDF format.

The Choose Life specialty vehicle license plate will cost an additional $35.00 each time you renew or purchase vehicle license. This fee consists of a $10.00 handling charge that will be paid to the Department of Finance & Administration and the remaining $25.00 will go into a special Adoption Assistance Fund that will help women choose adoption. A 2% administrative fee will be assessed for each plate sold to offset any government expenses for the distribution of the funds to qualifying agencies.

Before the plates can be issued a $6,000 set-up fee must be paid to the Dept. of Finance and Administration, and at least 500 plates must be requested.

Arkansas Right to Life conducted a petition drive to determine support for the Choose Life license. To help raise the DFA set-up fee, Arkansas Right to Life has front bumper promotional Choose Life plates available for a $20.00 donation.

For more information please call or email the state office at 501-663-4237 or artl@artl.org. Thank you.

Thank you for your interest in helping to promote adoption to women in crisis pregnancies.

Sincerely,
Rose Mimms
Executive Director

Choose Life – It Happened!

That’s right, we can now save lives, help women avoid the heartbreak of abortion, and help adoptive families have babies to adopt in Arkansas.

How can you help? By purchasing an official state-issued Choose Life specialty license plate you show support for life while also generating funds to promote and assist women to choose adoption.

What’s the cost? The Choose Life specialty license will cost an additional $35 per year, every year, $25 of which goes to the Choose Life Adoption Assistance Program Fund.

Who gets the money? Qualified non-profit organizations that provide services to the community that include counseling and meeting the physical needs for pregnant women who are committed to placing their children for adoption. Funds shall not be distributed to any organization that charges women for services received, or any organization that is involved or associated with abortion activities, including counseling for or referrals to abortion clinics providing medical abortion-related procedures or pro-abortion advertising.
