Supreme Court refuses to hear Illinois "Choose Life" license plate case, left ruling in place
The court left in place a federal appeals ruling that Illinois officials were within their rights in trying to keep viewpoints on abortion off Illinois license plates.

After gathering 25,000 signatures in support, the group pressed Secretary of State Jesse White to allow the creation of the anti-abortion-themed specialty license plate, following the lead of surrounding states with "Choose Life" plates.

"It's a bitter pill to swallow, I'll tell you that. It was a shock," said Jim Finnegan, president of Choose Life Illinois. "When you have people in Hammond, Ind., coming to work in Chicago driving with one of those plates on their car, and someone in Belleville coming out of Missouri with them on, it just looked like we had a chance to get this heard."[..]

Finnegan said his group intends to ask the Supreme Court to reconsider its decision.
