Idaho residents will have the opportunity to support moms and babies through their license plates in 2021.

On Tuesday, Republican Gov. Brad Little signed a law allowing the creation of “Choose Life” specialty license plates in the state, the AP reports.

The pro-life license plates will be available beginning in 2021 at a cost of $35, according to the report. A portion of the cost will be donated to pregnancy resource centers and other nonprofit organizations that help mothers choose life for their unborn babies.

Choose Life America is the organization behind the pro-life license plate project. According to the organization, since 1996, 33 states and the District of Columbia have passed laws allowing the “Choose Life” license plates.

Proceeds from the sales of the plates have resulted in more than $28 million in donations to pregnancy resource centers and adoption agencies throughout the country, the group states on its website.

In the past, abortion activists have tried to challenge the license plates as “state-sanctioned speech,” but, in 2016, North Carolina won a long court battle involving its “Choose Life” license plates. In the case, the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the pro-life license plates are constitutional.
