Welcome to Pennsylvania Choose Life, Inc.
Membership for PA Choose Life is $44.00 per year for the first year. The membership fee includes the PA Choose Life License Plate. After covering the costs incurred from the Department of Transportation for the manufacture of the plates the rest of the $44.00 fee will go directly to the Homes for Women in Crisis Pregnancies in Pennsylvania. In the future, members will be able to view fund distribution via the PA Choose Life website.
We would ask that you renew your $20.00 membership fee each year at the time of your vehicle registration. PA CHOOSELIFE will send you a reminder card separately from your Penndot Registration. Your annual support will continue to fund these homes in the years after you have received your PA CHOOSELIFE specialty plate.
BACKGROUND: The volume of unexpected and often unwanted pregnancies in this country has been a continuous problem for years. Evidence of this is apparent in the sheer volume of pregnancies terminated annually.
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 Pennsylvania 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 Pennsylvania. 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.
The Choose Life plate may be purchased for any non-commercial automobile or trailer.
