About Us


The purpose of Illinois Choose Life, Inc. is to promote the creation of a Choose Life specialty license plate in the state of Illinois.  When this Choose Life license plate becomes available, Illinois Choose Life will promote awareness of its availability and of the benefits of selecting the Choose Life plate.


The benefits of the Choose Life license plate are the opportunities created to encourage and assist adoption of children in Ilinois.  The funds generated from sales of the Choose Life license plate will become available to homes for unwed mothers, pregnancy help centers, adoption agencies, and organizations that provide help for foster and special needs children.
