The Women’s Media Center (WMC) today launched a video campaign entitled “C-B-S = Cancel Broadcast Sexism.”
A coalition of women’s groups is calling on CBS to immediately pull an anti-choice advertisement sponsored by Focus on the Family now set to air during Super Bowl XLIV.
The common denominator in ads like Pam Tebow’s is that the woman at the center is being celebrated for her bravery in making a specific choice—and that if she didn’t have the right to choose, then she wouldn’t be a hero at all.
It may look like a gossip mag, but today’s news roundup has gone totally Hollywood!
CBS yesterday approved the script for a Focus on the Family anti-choice ad to be aired during the superbowl, despite the network’s own written policy against advocacy ads.
Human rights advocates stated that a pledge signed last Friday by religious leaders that they won’t abide by laws supporting gay marriage or abortion “perpetuates the fallacy that equality and religious liberty are incompatible and that civil rights are another burden on religious people.”
After attacking James Dobson and Mitt Romney for not being anti-abortion enough, American Right to Life has set its sights on a new high profile target: ex-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
Not surprisingly, Focus
on the Family doesn’t support the one thing that would help reduce the number
of abortions in this country – comprehensive sex education.
How long is sex education going to be marginalized, hindered, or just ignored?
James Dobson is finally stepping down as Chairman of Focus on the Family so the organization can “appeal to a new generation.” But Dobson is far from retiring. And the organization still has its sights set on the same far right, religiously conservative goals.
