One Super Bowl Ad You Won't See
NBC has chosen not to run an anti-abortion ad by CatholicVote.org.
The ad does NOT show any negative or disturbing images, and the only sound is violin music. I think the ad honors our President and especially the mother and grandparents who lovingly raised him.
On Sunday, there will no doubt be plenty of beer ads during the Super Bowl. How many women will be beaten by their drunk husbands during and after the game? How many children will be belittled by drunk parents during and after the game? How many people will drive home drunk after Super Bowl parties, injuring or killing themselves or others in accidents? How many people will call in sick Monday morning because of a Super Bowl hangover? Year after year NBC has no problem running numerous ads that promote alcohol and drinking. I guess, in their chosing to not run a pro-life ad, NBC is at least being consistent: beer ads aren't pro-life.
