Above ,Ohio Choose Life Bill signed into law  by  Ohio  Governor Bob Taft.



A recent national survey among teenage girls reported that 82% believe their unmarried peers should offer their babies for adoption if they don't want them. For teens and older women alike such a decision can be not only difficult but also expensive.

 The financial costs associated with a full term pregnancy are often too extreme for some women to bear. Many non-profit organizations and volunteers across the state of Ohio offer assistance to these women in their time of need. Assistance includes such things as maternity clothing, food, housing, medical expenses and transportation. If a woman choose to bring a life into this world and offer her baby for adoption, she deserves all of the assistance and caring we can provide.

The revenues generated from "Choose Life" license plates would service two easily identifiable needs in Ohio. First and foremost it would provide much needed revenue to continue assistance to pregnant women who are planning to offer their child for adoption and it would provide financial assistance to agencies involved in the adoption and counseling efforts.

 Please encourage your churches or organizations for  their SUPPORT .Promoting is great and beneficial for your county.If your organization is hosting a fair booth, this is a great time to spread the word! A radio spot announcement maybe.Newspaper ads!Please help spread the word in Ohio. What a wonderful mission project too.

 This wonderful effort offers another avenue of hope to these women and girls, through your local pregnancy care centers,  non-profit maternity homes, and non-profit  adoptions agencies and other centers in your county. 

What a testimony you are on the highway!

 Some have asked what happens if your county does not have a  pregnancy care center.Not to worry. The surrounding county that services your county may have the opportunity of the funds, so please purchase the plate to help them. Do not let that discourage or stand in the way of the benefits of your purchase!

*Remember that each tag sold by exchange and or renewal ANNUALLY in your county will bring $20 into the Choose Life fund in Ohio then it goes back to your county where the tag was sold and will extend help to women and girls with pregnancy needs during an unplanned pregnancy, and offer the option of adoption for their unborn child. This is why it is important for everyone to help promote the plate throughout the year.

If anyone has the access to radio spot advertising  or billboards and sponsored ad's would be great to the cause of spreading the news of this wonderful organization and the benefits.

We are still hoping for commercial plate option. 

Are you pregnant and need help from caring people ?
