Silenced: DC Radio Station Pulls Pro-Life Ad Off Air

"One of the surest signs that a policy message like ours is effective is its opponents’ pushing to silence it."

By Dr. Susan Berry

The Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) says Washington, D.C. radio station WTOP has pulled its paid-for ad off the air after receiving complaints from listeners.

The national pro-life organization’s paid advertisement urges the redirection of taxpayer funds from abortion business Planned Parenthood to other federally qualified healthcare centers that provide more comprehensive care.

The ad script is as follows:

“It’s a fact: Planned Parenthood is America’s largest abortion business …nearly a million abortions in the last three years.
Its executives were caught on tape bragging about selling baby body parts.
 Under federal investigation, Planned Parenthood spent thirty million last election on political activism, not women’s healthcare.
It’s time for Congress to act. It’s time to redirect Planned Parenthood’s funding to community health centers that provide comprehensive health care to women, not abortions." – Paid for by Susan B. Anthony List
“Susan B. Anthony List has learned from Washington, D.C. radio station WTOP that it will discontinue airing our paid advertisement regarding taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood,” said SBA List president Marjorie Dannenfelser. “This regrettable response to our radio spot on one of the lead topics in the current national debate is shameful for a First Amendment institution like WTOP.”
