Pro-Life Commercial Deemed Too ‘Controversial’ By CBS, CMT and Hallmark
LINK /

A pro-life commercial created by the Susan B. Anthony List (SBA) has been deemed too “controversial” by several television channels, including CBS, the Country Music Channel (CMT) and the Hallmark Channel, which has previously aired gay marriage ads.

The 30-second spot shares, “Five decades of medical breakthroughs. Every age group has more opportunity to live except one. The unborn still fall victim to outdated laws.” During part of the narration, SBA shows ultrasound images of preborn babies.

“Science tells us that at fifteen weeks these babies have fully formed faces. They smile. They yawn. They feel pain,” the ad continues.

“Isn’t it time the law reflects the science?”

CBS has rejected the ad, arguing that it violates their guidelines and is too “controversial.”

“Issue-oriented advertisements that are designed for the purpose of presenting views or influencing legislation on issues that are controversial by general public consensus are unacceptable,” CBS wrote in an email to the SBA List, which was reported by The Daily Wire.

CMT, a channel that some could potentially see as friendly, also denied the commercial over its “controversial” content.

In a letter to SBA, CMT wrote, “While we do accept political and issue-based ads on a case-by-case basis, issue-oriented ads that are designed for the purpose of presenting views or influencing legislation on issues that are controversial by general public consensus are unacceptable.”

The Hallmark Channel, which came under fire for airing a gay marriage ad and aired a Christmas movie featuring a gay couple, argued that the ad was essentially too negative as the channel wants its audience to always have a “positive experience,” as reported by The Daily Wire.

In a Twitter post, SBA responded, “BIG MEDIA corporations like @CBS and the @hallmarkchannel BANNED our pro-life TV ad, claiming it’s too ‘controversial.’ The right to LIFE is NOT controversial!”

The group then shares that its audience and supporters can share the ad directly from Twitter.

The ad was made as part of a $2 million campaign in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to hear an abortion case out of Mississippi, which bans abortion after the 15th week of pregnancy and many think could potentially overturn or limit Roe v. Wade.

Though the ad has been denied by Hallmark, CBS and CMT, it’s scheduled to air on Bravo and Lifetime, as well as the Washington D.C. market.

Link to the ad, sorry don’t know how to post video

Liberals only like science that proves a man is a girl and a girl is a guy. They don't give shite about science that says a baby is actually a baby.

Not surprised. I've wondered for a while if this was being done without a news about it. I'm sure it has been, but glad to start hearing about it. Christians need to step it up for sure.

The Hallmark one is sad but not surprising now with their new radical head.

CMT needs to be called out on them blasting their gay flag logo, and how anti-Christian they are. Sadly Christians will need to up the "Christian-phobia" push now that dems da new rulz.

But they'll have some f@g in a dress on a commercial telling me why I'm evil and not inclusive.

Couldn't be farther from the truth. I will not discriminate at all when I inclusively tell any idiot of any race, gender, color or identity to frick off.

Big tech and the MSM act as the government's censorship bureau, by doing through the back door what big government cannot do under the Constitution.
