Media Outlets Reject Controversial Pro-life Ad

Ad Feedback

Three major U.S. newspapers are refusing to run a pro-life ad, calling it too controversial.

The ad by Heroic Media features a hand holding a 20 to 24-week-old pre-born baby.

Above the baby is a quote saying, "This child has no voice, which is why it depends on yours, speak up."

Lifenews.com reported that The Chicago Tribune , USA Today, and Los Angeles Times said they feel the image of the baby is "controversial."

The controversy stems from the ad not specifying "whether the child was alive or dead," according to World Magazine.

Heroic Media Executive Director Joe Young said media outlets need to be willing to put a face to abortion.

"The fact remains, children who are unique individuals -- never again to be duplicated -- are being killed in the most violent way imaginable," he said.

The ad was released last week after the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.
