  • I think its wonderful...there are so many ways that planned parenthood and other advocates for the choice of abortion tell all of us every single day that it really isnt a baby so its not so bad if one chooses abortion.So why not this ad just to show another side...women/girls still will be able to make up their own minds..

  • i am pro-choice. i do not have a problem with the ad. i think it can run. i am really open to people's opinions on things, and as long as they do not push anything on anyone else... i feel it is fine to shine a light on how they see a situation. it doesnt mean i have to agree, but it doesnt bother me to see this ad.

    also i dont think places like planned parenthood ever say things like" it really isnt a baby, go ahead and get abortions". i think they are a wonderful organization. and in my experience there goal was never to push abortion, but instead to provide knowledge about sex and ways to keep yourself safe. in order to prevent such situations as well as sexually transmitted diseases.

  • hubby and i were talking about it. i think the message of the ad is of a triumphant story. not necessairly a message of pro life, pro choice....it's a story of success and having hope. I am happy to hear it is still going to be run.

  • I think it's a beautiful and inspiring story and should be shared. Half naked women and glamourizing alcohol aren't an issue to people anymore, so I don't think this should be.
