Wed Feb 3 2010 (Updated 02/07/10)CBS to Air Ads Attacking Abortion During Super Bowl
Wed Feb 3 2010 (Updated 02/07/10)Protest in Front of CBS Affiliate in San Francisco
After thousands of emails from women and men who believe in women's choice, CBS still refuses to withdraw the anti-abortion ad they plan to air on February 7th.
In the past, CBS had a stated policy to reject all ads it deems controversial. "Controversial" organizations included MoveOn.org, and even the United Church of Christ. The liberal Christian church's sin was to suggest that their church would model tolerance. Their objectionable slogan? "Jesus Didn't Turn People Away. Neither Do We".
The Feminist Majority Foundation said that after protests of the anti-abortion ad, CBS announced they had loosened their policy. But, the foundation reports, the network then quickly rejected an advertisement because it featured two men watching football and engaging in a kiss.
Activist group the South Florida Raging Grannies answered a call issued by the Women's Media Center to respond to the network's plan to run the anti-choice ad. The Grannies created a video with new lyrics to the tune "Three Blind Mice" that criticizes what the Grannies say is the network's hypocrisy. Members of groups including the San Francisco Bay Area Raging Grannies, CodePink, World Can't Wait, Revolution Books, Bay Area Coalition for Our Reproductive Rights and others sang the Florida Grannies' composition in front of KPIX-TV in a protest on February 4th.
