National Petition to Approve the New Jersey "Choose Life" License Plate
We are happy to announce that as of December of 2010, due not only to your support but also a favorable court ruling by the Federal Third Circuit Court of Appeals, we finally have the plate on the roads of New Jersey after 6 years of legal battles handled by the incomparable lawyers of the Alliance Defense Fund (www.telladf.org), a group of dedicated attorneys who specialize in First Amendment cases. We hope that those of you who signed the petition who live in New Jersey will get this life-saving plate and that you will tell your friends about this plate that promotes the loving choice of adoption for an unplanned pregnancy. As of this writing, we have over 500 plates on the road, but we hope in the years to come that we can match Florida's 45,000 plates. Your tax-deductable membership fee to The Children First Foundation, a state requirement to get the plate, goes to help over 60 pregnancy resource centers and maternity homes in the state of New Jersey. If we can get 50,000 plates on the road, that will raise $1 million each and every year for these centers who receive no tax support at all. We thank each and every one of you for your support, and we hope that you will continue in your interest in this loving program.
May God bless you.
The Children First Foundation
Petition Background (Preamble):
IMPORTANT BACKGROUND INFORMATION
The Children First Foundation (CFF), a non-profit organization whose purpose is to promote and support adoption as a positive choice for unwanted pregnancies or newborns, is the official sponsor of the Choose Life License Plate in New Jersey. This nationwide specialty plate helps support women who choose life and adoption.
To date, the "Choose Life" License Plate has been approved in 25 different states: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee and Virginia. Since the year 2000, approximately 500,000 plates have been purchased or renewed nationwide, raising over $11 million dollars throughout the country for hundreds of pro-life agencies that help women who maturely and courageously choose life and adoption for their unwanted pregnancies and newborns.
Unfortunately CFF’s plate has been unconstitutionally blocked by the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission since 2003, and CFF has been forced to take legal action through its lawyers with the Alliance Defense Fund. For more history on CFF’s efforts to get the Choose Life plate on the road in New Jersey, go to:
You can help get the New Jersey "Choose Life" License Plate approved by signing this important petition today and by forwarding it to family, friends and colleagues.

Thank you so much for "Taking a Stand for Life." This is a grassroots effort, and we greatly appreciate your time, support and prayers for the approval of the "Choose Life" License Plate in New Jersey.
I support CFF's application for a New Jersey "Choose Life" Specialty Plate as pictured above.
