Deadline Extended! Please buy your “Trust Women: Respect Choice” license plate today!

UPDATE: The deadline has been extended until Thursday! We need you to purchase your “Trust Women, Respect Choice” plate today in order to show the Virginia legislature that Virginians do care about protecting reproductive rights. We still need to pre-sell 200 plates before the deadline of Thursday, January 21st. Please buy yours today!

“Choose Life” license plates have been on the street since last spring, and have already raised more than $9,500 for so-called “crisis pregnancy centers,” many of which spread medically inaccurate information.

We decided to do something in response. It’s time for a pro-choice license plate to hit the roads of Virginia!

NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia is excited to partner with Planned Parenthood Advocates of Virginia and announce that we are now accepting applications for the “Trust Women, Respect Choice” license plate! Click here to learn more about this effort.

They only cost $25, $15 of which goes directly to supporting Planned Parenthood’s preventive-health efforts!

But to get a pro-choice plate on the roads, we need to receive 350 pre-orders before we can bring a proposal for the plates to the General Assembly.

Please order your plate today! The deadline is January 21st.

Follow the instructions below to pre-order your license plate.

1. Download the application to pre-order your license plate and mail it to us:
The Virginia League for Planned Parenthood (or VLPP)
Attn: Courtney Jones
201 N. Hamilton Street
Richmond, Virginia 23221

2. Pre-pay for your license by sending a check made out to The Virginia League for Planned Parenthood (or VLPP), along with your application. Or submit payment online through PayPal(see information below).

There are three different pricing levels:
1. Non-personalized plate: $25
2. Retaining a personalized plate: $35
3. Requesting a personalized plate: $35

We must have applications and payment for all 350 pre-ordered license plates to get the new plate to qualify. (If we don’t reach 350 applications, your money will be refunded.)

3. Help us spread the word. To reach the required 350 pre-ordered plates, we need every pro-choice Virginian to purchase one, so please send this email to your friends.

Do you have questions about the application? Don’t know whether you can have a special interest plate on your vehicle? Click here to see the DMV’s Frequently Asked Questions document. If you do not find the information you are looking for, contact Emily@naralva.org, and we will respond to your inquiry as soon as possible.

Here’s to starting 2010 with a pro-choice license plate!

Tarina, Emily, and Krista
