Pro-life organisation, Faces of Choice has been denied a commercial place during the Super Bowl ads.
After initial approval of the story board months ago, the Fox legal department then used delay tactics to censor the pro-life ad.
Lyric Gillett, founder of Faces of Choice said, “We were told over and over again ‘you’re going to get an answer’, but we never got anything.”
Eventually, after months of follow up Gillett was informed that the advertising slots had sold out.
“I think it’s very clever what they’re doing. If they directly said ‘no’ then we could say ‘this is asinine, look at the suitable ad that Fox rejected’, but they haven’t directly said ‘no,’ they’ve ignored us, wasted our time, refused to give an answer and refused to either give us clearance or simply say ‘no,’” Gillett said.
When asked about her motives for creating an ad featuring abortion survivors, Gillett explained, “We simply want to tell their forgotten stories and there’s no larger mega-phone than the Super Bowl.”
