Take Action: Pro-life Super Bowl Ad Sacked

From the NCR Daily Register:

NBC has refused to air’s new pro-life ad during its broadcast of this Sunday’s Super Bowl game.

According to a Jan. 29 press release from, “After several days of negotiations, an NBC representative in Chicago told late yesterday that NBC and the NFL are not interested in advertisements involving ‘political candidates or issues.’”

Brian Burch, president of, said in the press release, “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. We congratulate Barack Obama on becoming the first African-American President. And we simply ask people to imagine the potential of each human life.”

The 30-second ad has no graphic content nor even any direct references to abortion.

It features an ultrasound image of a baby in the womb and images of Barack Obama, along with a narration describing how the president’s mother chose to give birth to him and nurtured him as a single mother after his Kenyan-born father left the family, allowing Obama to grow up to become the nation’s first African-American president.

The pro-life ad can be viewed here at’s website, as well as here and here at the Daily Blog’s earlier posts regarding the ad. Article

I for one was disgusted that NBC not only pulled this commercial, but ran one not 10 minutes into the game for the soon to be released anti-Catholic movie sequel to "The DaVinci Code"; "Angels and Demons". I wrote an article on my blog and I haven't even started to get on NBC's case yet.

Don't forget to let NBC's advertisers that you won't be buying their products!

God Bless!
