CNN's Textbook Refusal

CatholicVote.org had plans to air their pro-life video on CNN .  The video that was refused airing during the Super Bowl has met a similar fate at the hands of CNN execs. Briane Burke writes that CNN has refused the pro-life video that they’d planned to air after President Obama’s first State of the Union Address.   “Their (CNN’s) excuse”, an executive of a prominent commercial ad agency, said “is a textbook answer for a network that does not want to run your ad.”

Burke states, ““CNN and others simply don’t like the obvious conclusion of our ad – there was no ‘choice’ for abortion back in 1961. Thankfully, we had laws then safeguarding unborn children – laws that protected the life of a future president who tragically is unwilling to fight for those same protections today.”

Hope springs eternal! Life’s that important.  “All is not lost.”  Burke says, “CNN’s refusal will only create more attention for our ad, which has been widely discussed even among abortion groups like NARAL and nationally-syndicated columnist Ellen Goodman. The ad remains a viral hit on the Internet with over 1.6 million views on YouTube.”
