Planned Parenthood announces release of new license plate

Planned Parenthood of the Heartland announced Thursday a new license plate will soon be available to the public stating "My Body, My Choice."

In a press release, Planned Parenthood of the Heartland said it submitted 263 applications for the license plate on Dec. 26, surpassing the state's requirement of 250.

The press release states the license plate was created to balance out the "Choose Life" plates that were approved this year.

“‘My Body, My Choice’ license plates are an opportunity for Nebraskans to voice their own opinion on issues of women’s health – opinions that don’t necessarily reflect the opinion of the governor, lieutenant governor and some senators,” Meg Mikolajczyk, associate general counsel and senior public affairs manager for Planned Parenthood of the Heartland said in the release.
