Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton today announced the appointment of seven members to the Choose Life Advisory Committee, which helps the Office of the Attorney General administer funds raised by the sale of Choose Life specialty license plates. The funds are used to promote adoption as an alternative to abortion.

“I’m pleased to appoint these talented and passionate individuals who share my commitment to protecting the sanctity of life and dedication to improving the lives of Texas children,” Attorney General Paxton said. “I’m grateful that they’re volunteering their time to help plan and carry out efforts to promote adoption in Texas, and bring families across our state the most wonderful gift of all: the love of a child.”

Choose Life specialty license plates, created in 2011 by SB 257, went on sale in November 2011. Funds from the account are distributed via a grant application process that is administered by the OAG, with the advice of the Committee.

Committee members include:

Judy Canon – Midland

Carol Everett – Round Rock

Lois Kerschen – Lubbock

Matt Kouri – Austin

Julie Stobbe – The Woodlands

Lisa Luby Ryan – Dallas

Cheyenne Weable – Rockwall
