Shouldn't MTV Be Pro-Life?

Get this. MTV has pulled a pro-life ad, claiming that the makers of the ad are too controversial or something. Because, you know, MTV doesn't like controversy at all. For over a year the former music video channel has run this ad from Heroic Media.

But MTV is now refusing to run this ad saying, “Upon further review, it was hard for us to separate some of the recent tactics of the organization behind the ads themselves, so we have opted to not accept them for air at this time,” said Jeannie Kedas, Senior Vice President MTV Networks, in a statement.

By "recent tactics," MTV is referring to billboards that highlight the crazy high abortion rate in the African American community. Oddly enough, MTV is gearing up for some kind of partnership with Planned Parenthood. Quid pro quo? I wonder.

But think about the incredible hypocrisy here. Planned Parenthood kills little African-American babies at a higher rate than they kill white babies. Heroic Media points out this fact. MTV gets outraged at Heroic Media. Does that make sense? It doesn't unless one understands that the agenda here by MTV isn't truth or saving black babies. It's silencing the truth.

But the thing I don't understand is that if MTV were smart they'd be promoting adoption and the pro-life cause. Hey, just a business suggestion to MTV folks. Your customers are young people. Methinks it would be in your best interest to promote the birth of lots and lots of them. Think about it. Because many babies grow up to be idiotic teenagers who for a short while will somehow think MTV is cool. Promoting abortion on your channel isn't just wrong. It's bad business. You're actually promoting cutting your demand. Duh!

But sadly, it would seem MTV is run by pro-abortion ideologues.

You're right in saying this truly is a "pro-abortion" decision. If they actually held a "pro-choice" position, they would allow outreach commercials from all groups. The commercial itself doesn't even voice an opinion one way or the other, so what they're really complaining about is the affiliation. They are terrified that a young "stupid" girl will be tricked into going through with the pregnancy and end up giving birth to one of those "problems" that is "causing all the problems in our country". How does this not correspond with the line of thinking that inspired Mein Kampf? MTV? More like NTV...N for Nazi, that is.

This is a network that is aimed at young people, who are overwhelmingly pro-life, run by middle-aged people who are overwhelmingly pro-choice. It's no surprise. They don't want any more "indoctrination" of kids to the pro-life side. It's a puzzling decision, in a way, given the popularity of "Teen Mom." You'd think they would want to widen their pool of applicants for the show.

Yes it's a bad business model for MTV. And teacher's unions that donate to pro-abort politicians and planned parenthood allowed in school clinics... Truly a mind numbing string of conflicts of interest.

The real secret is that they are bunch of cold, calculating racists. The less black babies, the less crime, the less social problems, the less welfare money. They just hide their racism under the glorious mantle of personal liberty. No poor, black child can afford the junk they hoc on MTV, so who cares?
