The full press release can be read at the link below, but the gist of the story is summarized in this paragraph:

CHICAGO, Jan. 22 /Christian Newswire/ -- On Friday, a ruling was handed down from the Northern Illinois District Court allowing the pro-adoption message “Choose Life” to be an option for specialty license plates in the State of Illinois. Citing First Amendment protection, Judge David Coar ruled in favor of Choose Life Illinois (CLI), explaining that their message is constitutionally entitled to be on Illinois license plates. In Judge Coar’s Memorandum it states that “…the Secretary of State is ordered to issue the ‘Choose Life’ plates.” CLI, a pro-adoption organization, had filed the lawsuit against the Secretary of State, Jesse White, claiming that the process by which the “Choose Life” specialty license plate was disapproved in Illinois was “viewpoint discriminatory” in violation of the First Amendment and, therefore, unconstitutional.
