Tennessee must ensure that all residents can express their views equally, said Hedy Weinberg, Executive Director of the ACLU of Tennessee. The state cannot be in the business of limiting some speech while allowing other speech.
The legislature twice rejected an amendment that would have authorized a Pro-Choice specialty plate. The law in question makes a Choose Life license plate available to motorists for an annual fee of $35 over and above the basic cost of registering a car in the state.

In March, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against the ACLU and ruled that the anti-choice plate did not violate free speech rights. Earlier this month, the ACLU announced that it would appeal that decision to the U.S. Supreme Court and also asked the federal appeals court to postpone Tennessees production of the plate while the appeal is under consideration.
