Drop the pro-life tag

I am writing in response to the article about ending some of the Florida state specialty car tags. It seems logical to me that the state should and would end the "Choose Life" tag.

Without taking a pro-life or pro-choice stance, it is evident that this tag violates separation of church and state. The money earned from selling these tags goes to pro-life organizations. The majority of these pro-life organizations are religious based. Therefore, these religious organizations are using a state agency to raise funds for their cause.

So before we start eliminating specialty tags related to education, I think we should eliminate tags that infringe on our Constitution.
