Forbid the airing of a graphic anti-choice ad during the Super Bowl

Radical anti-choice leader Randall Terry, of Operation Rescue, the man who cheered the murder of abortion doctor George Tiller the same day he was shot in his own church, is attempting to air ads for his presidential candidacy in 40 states during the Super Bowl, featuring bloody, aborted fetuses. Laws in these states mandate the showing of every political advertisement within 45 days of a primary election, so NBC stations will have no choice but to show the ad.

Tell FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski: Randall Terry must be prevented from hijacking our airwaves with gruesome ads and exploitation of pregnant women to promote his hate-filled agenda. Such a tasteless attempt to insert extremist views into the unsuspecting eyes of millions of Americans during what is normally the country's most-watched sporting event should be stopped.

Letter to
Chairman, Federal Communications Commission Julius Genachowski
I've signed this petition asking you to prevent Operation Rescue leader Randall Terry from airing abhorrent political ads in 40 states during the Super Bowl. Please step in and stop this from happening.

Prevent the airing of graphic political ads during the Super Bowl

Radical anti-choice leader Randall Terry, of Operation Rescue, is taking advantage of a loophole in state election laws in up to 40 states to air a graphic ad featuring bloody, aborted fetuses during the Super Bowl. The law states that any political advertisement within 45 days of an election cannot be prohibited from being aired, so stations have no choice but to show the ad. Such a tasteless attempt to insert one's narrow-minded view into the unsuspecting eyes of millions of Americans during what is normally the country's most-watched sporting event should be stopped.

Please prevent the airing of any ad that uses gruesome violence and exploitation of pregnant women to promote a hateful agenda.
