In deciding to air a Focus on the Family ad during the Super Bowl, CBS executives have effectively outed themselves as anti-choice and anti-woman.
As an ob/gyn, I would never tell a football coach how to lead a team to the Super Bowl. So I’m mystified and frustrated that CBS is letting someone who knows nothing about my job tell Super Bowl viewers how to handle a complicated pregnancy.
Funny that even though CBS changed their policy towards advocacy ads they rejected an ad for a gay dating website saying it “is not within the Network’s Broadcast Standards for Super Bowl Sunday.”
When pregnant with son Tim, Pam Tebow was in the Philippines and became ill with amoebic dysentery. Early reports indicated that she was faced with a choice of continuing the pregnancy at the risk to her life. That appears not to be true.
More Super Bowl ad talk, this time from a bunch of guys. And Obama’s attempt to destroy government, one fetus at a time…
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.
