Take Action: NBC Refuses to Air Pro-Life Ad during Super Bowl

NBC will not air a pro-life ad during the Super Bowl, even though it considered a sexual ad from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

The pro-life ad, created by CatholicVote.org, portrays President Barack Obama as a pre-born baby. It features images of a child in uterous set to music and reads:
"The child's future is a broken home. He will be abandoned by his father. His single mother will struggle to raise him.

"Despite the hardships he will endure, this child will become the first African-American president."
Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, said: "In reality, these 41 seconds do more to inspire than the hundreds of other Super Bowl ads that use sex and alcohol to wow viewers. It's ironic that producers pull out the rule book when they want to police traditional values."

While the life ad was rejected because it is political, PETA simply was told to make a few edits to its ad.

Please ask NBC to welcome life-affirming advertising. To contact NBC Click Here.
