EWTN To Air Pro-Life Obama Ad on Superbowl Sunday that NBC Refused to Air
Irondale, AL, January 30, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The pro-life ad NBC refused to air during the Super Bowl can instead be seen on EWTN Global Catholic Network this Sunday Feb. 1, beginning at 5:30 p.m. ET and continuing through midnight ET.
The ad, sponsored by Fidelis and catholicvote.com, centers around the theme: “Life: Imagine the Potential.” It shows an ultrasound of an unborn child, and then the words: “This child’s future is a broken home. He will be abandoned by his father, his single mother will struggle to raise him. Despite the hardships he will endure. This child will become the 1st African-American president. Life, imagine the potential.”
It will begin airing during “Faith Bowl II,” an annual Family Theatre made-for-television special, which analyzes the role that the Catholic/Christian Faith plays in professional and collegiate sports. This year, Major League Baseball’s Mark Loretta of the Los Angeles Dodgers will guest along with former professional soccer player Antonio Soave.
The pro-life ads will continue throughout EWTN’s Sunday evening lineup, including the shows with popular series Hosts Father Benedict Groeschel and Father John Corapi, and will conclude at midnight ET.
EWTN also aired the powerful ad several times during its extensive coverage of the March for Life, an event which has been boycotted by virtually every mainstream media outlet in the country, despite the fact that every year it is Washington, D.C.‘s largest march.
