Fox Denies Pro-Life Super Bowl Commercial Featuring Abortion Survivors

Wow. FOX is showing their true colors when it comes to the importance of life inside the womb.

A pro-life organization known as Faces of Choice wants to air a commercial ahead of the 2020 Super Bowl, which would feature the stories of a few different abortion survivors.

FOC leaders said that they have attempted to purchase ad time during the Super Bowl for more than six months, but FOX has continuously ignored them.

Life News reports:

Their powerful new ad premiered at the March for Life last week, and it featured the stories of more than a dozen people who survived abortions.

Lyric Gillett, the 28-year-old founder of Faces of Choice and producer of the ad, said they have a shortened version ready to air during the big game.

“Every great human rights movement in history has been anchored in the stories and the faces of its victims,” Gillett said.

“That’s what we aim to do; we simply want to tell their forgotten stories and there’s no larger mega-phone than the Super Bowl,” she continued. “After months of correspondence with the Fox network, we are asking for a definitive answer immediately.”

She said they are tired of getting the runaround. Gillett said they provided all the necessary documentation to FOX and answered its legal team’s questions, but the network still did not give her an answer.

This week, her organization and My Faith Votes launched a campaign urging pro-lifers to contact the network and ask for a final decision on the ad.

“With less than a week to go until the big game, time is of the essence and we are asking for one of the last remaining time slots available,” Gillett added. “Just give us an answer and let us have the opportunity to tell the world these stories, to show the faces of choice.”

They asked people to email Fox Corp. SVP, Standards and Practices Barbara De Santis, VP, Commercial Clearance Maryana Dezarlo, SVP, Ad Sales Jim Reeder, and EVP, Corporate General Counsel Claudia Teran. The pro-life organizations also began a petition here.

My Faith Votes CEO Jason Yates declared, “Fox Sports needs to hear from thousands of pro-life Americans, today. There’s no time to wait.”

If the network refuses to run the spot, Gillett encouraged pro-lifers to shut off the commercials during the Super Bowl and take time to watch the abortion survivors’ stories instead on YouTube. Find the video here.

Abortion survivors pose a vital question to abortion activists through the new ad, “Can you look me in the eye and say I should have been aborted?”

Well pro-choicers, could you do that? I know as a pro-lifer, I sure couldn’t. Every life matters.

The abortion survivors featured in the ad include the following: Dr. Imre Téglásy (1952, Hungary); Paula Page (02/24/54); Miriam “Penny” Hopper (11/29/55); Denisha Workizer (7/11/76); Melissa Ohden (8/29/77); Jennifer Millbourn (9/02/78); Jennifer Callender (7/18/80); Claire Culwell (3/06/88); Hope Hoffman (8/12/91); Josiah Presley (10/07/95); Asiimwe Ronald Williams (9/25/97, Uganda); Dona Marie Mendoza (Philippines); Jaylyn Schoch (8/15/03); and Zechariah Hagan (10/20/13), one of the first abortion pill reversal survivors.
