Nevada Could Soon See 'Values Life' Specialty License Plate

(AP) - Motorists could soon buy specialty license plates proclaiming "Nevada Values Life," although state officials and Planned Parenthood have warned of possible lawsuits because of the overtly Christian anti-abortion charity that will receive a portion of the proceeds.

A panel of lawmakers voted last month to approve the proposed specialty license plate, which is expected to feature a baby's face along with the "Values Life" text. Proceeds will benefit Women's Resource Medical Centers of Southern Nevada.

State lawyer Matthew Mundy warned that similar plates in other states have attracted lawsuits, although he said he thinks the proposal is in the clear because the license plate design isn't promoting religion.

The Department of Motor Vehicles said it's consulting with lawyers about Planned Parenthood's concerns, but otherwise will move toward the design phase.
