About 100 members of the local pro-life community gathered for a rally Sunday Sept. 26 in Kettering to kick off the Dayton 40 Days for Life campaign. Bryan Kemper, from Stand True Ministries of Troy, was the speaker at the rally.
A Georgia lawmaker is looking to offer a new license plate for the state.
It's sure to be one of the more controversial and most talked about amendments offered in the next legislative session.
"If we have pro-life," says State Senator Gloria Butler, "then we should also have pro-choice."
Butler, a Democrat from Stone Mountain, tells WSB she tried offering an amendment to sell pro-choice tags when the legislature passed the bill to offer "Choose Life" license plates.
Her effort failed.
Now Butler is considering trying again. It's because of a recent ruling from a judge in North Carolina who decided that that state cannot sell "Choose Life" tags without also offering "Pro Choice" plates.
"That's the driving force behind (my consideration)," Butler says.
The Senator says offering the new plates would be the right thing to do and would generate new revenue for the state.
"We should not have one segment of the population to speak that has a different point of view on an issue," she says, "and not allow the other segment of the population to speak."
Butler says she still does not know if she will, in fact, offer the amendment, but she is strongly thinking about it.
