  • no, i wouldnt care. im pro-choice and i dont see anything wrong with women knowing there options & abortion should be normalised because, it is normal. but im a hypocrite because if they played a pro-life commercial it would bother me.

  • if they are allowed to play abortion ads they would need to be allowed to play prolife ads as well.

  • I have no problem with pro-life ads either. I have no problem with someone who is about to get an abortion being required to see the ultrasound. It's a medical procedure, the patient should be able to handle being well infromed of EVERYTHING that is going on.

  • I have no problem with pro life or pro choice ads. My stand on abortion won't be changed so it doesn't affect me, but people should hear both sides of the issue. Educated, not told which one is best.

  • I've never seen a pro-life ad. I don't know that anyone would be brave enough to run these adds on EITHER side.

  • I have seen pro life ads. I would have to see the above mentioned ad to make a decision. I am very much pro life but if the commercial is about informed decisions then it may be okay... I would really have to see it.

  • I see all these shows on TV about teens having babies, it's crazy. I think it would be great to see some shows with girls telling about their experience of having an abortion. If they were really serious about cutting kids having sex and unwed mothers they would be happy to show this type of show. Of course they don't really care. The more poor unwed mothers there are the more people there are on welfare and the more votes the Dems get.
