Heroic Media, a national pro-life organization, says that three major newspapers, The Chicago Tribune, USA Today, and LA Times, all rejected the pro-life ad pictured above as “too controversial.” Live Action News reports:
I am disturbed that these papers would run article after article promoting the notion that abortion is a victimless act without consequences,” [Heroic Media Executive Director Joe] Young said. “The fact remains, children who are unique individuals – never again to be duplicated – are being killed in the most violent way imaginable and they feel the excruciating pain of that death.
Apparently, it was the photo of the unborn baby — at 20 to 24 weeks — that offended the publications. The Chicago Tribune only agreed to run the ad after the photo was changed to a child in the womb and the ad was clearly marked as an advertisement.
The advertisement is designed to support the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Act, which would prevent abortions after 20 weeks when the unborn child can feel the pain of being aborted.
