Stepping onto the soapbox.

Wednesday, February 3, 2010

At the risk of offending some readers - (actually TOO bad) I am re-posting this from MNMom because no group that says women cannot make rational choices when they are pregnant should be given a forum as large as the Super Bowl audience. 

CBS cleared the way to subject nearly 100 million people to Focus on the Family’s extreme agenda by agreeing to air its new pro-life ad during the Super Bowl.

Focus on the Family has an unmistakable anti-choice, anti-birth-control, anti-sex-education, anti-gay agenda. If that wasn’t bad enough, its views on women are just plain insulting and dangerous. For example, its web site urges women facing an unintended pregnancy to seek “wise advice” because “the hormones and extreme emotions of pregnancy make reasonable decisions more difficult.”

CBS still has time to change course if enough of us apply pressure. Urge CBS to drop Focus on the Family’s ad.

You can go to the NARAL site and sign their petition.

Or you can Email CBS by going to and scrolling to the bottom and clicking the "feedback" link.

Here's what I (and she) sent:

"I am respectfully asking you to drop the planned Focus on the Family ad during the Superbowl. Pandering to their extreme agenda during a family/recreational event is shameless. I will avoid the Superbowl, and all other CBS programming until I hear your decision has been reversed. I may be one person, but I will spread this message and urge others to do the same."
I mean, they allow fear and hate advertising, but not this???

Farts are funny...

Thanks for the link!
I'm all for free speech, but allowing this during the Superbowl is wrong, wrong, wrong.
