Washington,
DC (LifeNews.com) -- NBC is coming under fire from pro-life advocates
for rejecting a television commercial a pro-life group hoped to run
during the Super Bowl. The ad shows a beautiful picture of an unborn
child during an ultrasound and asks what would happen if President
Barack Obama had been a victim of abortion.The
commercial, a popular one in recent weeks within the pro-life movement,
is sponsored by the pro-life Catholic group Fidelis and its CatholicVote
web site.After
several days of negotiations, an NBC representative in Chicago told
the group late yesterday that NBC and the NFL are not interested in
advertisements involving "political advocacy or issues."Brian
Burch, president of the pro-life group, told LifeNews.com he is upset
that NBC officials rejected what he calls a uplifting and positive
pro-life ad."There
is nothing objectionable in this positive, life-affirming advertisement.
We show a beautiful ultrasound, something NBC's parent company
GE has done for years," Burch said."We
congratulate Barack Obama on becoming the first African-American President.
And we simply ask people to imagine the potential of every human life,"
he told LifeNews.com
Burch
said NBC told Fidelis that they do not allow political or issue advocacy
advertisements. But
that's not what they told PETA," he said about the network's
recent decision to reject an ad from the animal rights group. "There's
no doubt that PETA is an advocacy group. NBC rejected PETA's
ad for another reason altogether."According
to an email posted on the PETA web site, Victoria Morgan, Vice President
of Advertising Standards for Universal, said, "The PETA spot
submitted to Advertising Standards depicts a level of sexuality exceeding
our standards."Morgan
also talked about edits that need to be made" in order for the
PETA spot to run during the Super Bowl.Burch
responded to that rejection further by saying, "NBC claims it
doesn't allow advocacy ads, but that's not true. They were willing
to air an ad by PETA if they would simply tone down the sexual suggestiveness.
Our ad is far less provocative, and hardly controversial by comparison.""The
purpose of our new ad is to spread a message of hope about the potential
of every human life, including the life of Barack Obama," Burch
told LifeNews.com. "We are now looking at alternative venues
to run the ad over the next several weeks."The
ad aired on BET in Chicago on Inauguration Day and it has become an
Internet sensation with over 700,000 views in seven days. The CatholicVote
ad was in the top 10 "most viewed" category on YouTube on
Inauguration Day last week.The
ad says: "This 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 1st African-American President." The
television spot, the first of several ads in new campaign launched
by CatholicVote.org, concludes with the tag line, "Life: Imagine
the Potential."The
CatholicVote.org web site is a project of the Fidelis Center for Law
and Policy.ACTION:
