  • I think it is a good commercial but doesn't really belong in the superbowl. I mean yes a lot of people will be watching and all around the world at that, but I don't associate non-abortion commercials with the superbowl....jmo

  • I'm glad that it was rejected. it's offensive, misleading, and I'm sooooooooooooooooo glad NBC rejected this emotional black mail add. and why are they implying that only blacks get abortion?

  • I think that is a beautiful ad. It proves a good point, and I am not one bit surprised that nbc refused to show it

  • I think that it would have been perceived as biased. There would have been major speculation and I think that, in many ways, it goes against Obama's proposal about this topic as he is not pro-life politically. I also think that if pro-choicers, myself being one of them, would have attempted to air a pro-choice ad, especially during an event as high profile as the Super Bowl, there would have been a major uproar. In this case I think that NBC made a wise decision in their refusal so as not to start an uproar.

  • Or they could have referred to one of those fetuses that went on to rape and murder. There are many different endings to this story...

  • To me it shows NBC is anti- catholic not about race but faith.
