One of the Vote No 67 Campaign advertisements has been rejected by Hulu, the online streaming video service.
“According to our advertising bylaws, we are not able to accept ‘ads that advocate a controversial political or other public position,” wrote a Hulu ad representative to the Vote No on 67 Campaign.
“I was on my daily run when I was attacked, and beaten and raped,” says “Amanda” in the rejected ad. “What I’ve been through is one of the many reasons I oppose Amendment 67. When I was at the hospital, I was offered emergency contraception. Amendment 67 could ban abortion and emergency contraception, even in cases of rape or incest. Of course, we all want to protect pregnant women, but Amendment 67 isn’t the way.”
Trouble is, this ad is factual, and Hulu has been running spots on numerous other political issues.
I contacted Hulu seeking an explanation for why this ad is unacceptable and will update this post when I hear back.
Amendment 67 is the “personhood” amendment on this year’s election ballot.
