New York, NY (LifeNews.com) -- The ABC television network is coming under fire from a leading pro-life group for censoring a political radio ad that criticizes Barack Obama's pro-abortion voting record. National Right to Life hoped to run the ad during the nationally syndicated Sean Hannity radio program.
The ad asks Obama when he will apologize for calling the group "liars" for pointing out how he misrepresented his votes in the Illinois legislature against bills that would require medical care for babies who survive failed abortions.
Two nonpartisan groups, FactCheck.org and PolitiFact.com have verified NRLC's claims as true -- leading the pro-life group to produce the ad.
On Friday, NRLC received notice from ABC Radio Network that it would not air the ad during Hannity's radio program.
In an email to National Right to Life, ABC Radio Network executives claimed the ad, "while supporting aspects of a Pro-Life position, weighs more heavily toward electioneering."

How can they do that to a groups’ ad? They paid for the airtime.
UGH! Well hopefully Hannity will air it on his program anyway.

That’s okay, they let Obama get half an hour all to himself in primetime. They’re Fair and Balanced.
It would seem that Hannity would have the final word on this, wouldn’t he?
Shoot. If anybody is engaging in “electioneering”, it’s ABC.
Why Hannity’s program? They’re preaching to the choir. It needs to paly during primetime.
It would be nice if he used it instead of bumper music for the entire show.
Hannity is a broadcaster. He doesn’t working in the sales department.
Oh pshaw! Obama doesn’t lie. Ask John McCain.
Astute observation. Playing it during a show when undecideds are listening makes more sense.
And abc doesn’t want to get involved in “electioneering.” Nope. No way. Uh uh!
You left off the part Barack Obama worked so hard to protect, the induced labor which forces an alive preemie to be born too soon to survive without heroic medical attention. That wasn’t a bad thing, to Barack Obama.
I agree, and I was wondering the same thing.
Yeah. Isn’t that a joke?
Hey...No free speech anymore. Only liberal indoctrinations are allowed. This ain’t the America your parents grew up in. It’s on it’s way to becoming the United Socialist States of America.
