LETTER: Right-to-Life ad disappointing

I’m writing because I’m so disgusted with the recent Nelson Right-to-Life ad.

I’m writing because I’m so disgusted with the recent Nelson Right-to-Life ad. Don’t you as a business have standards in your advertising? Or will you take money from anyone for an ad no matter how ignorant, hurtful and enraging it may be? Pro choice/pro life is a very touchy subject that people feel very passionate about. I also totally get edgy advertising it gets people talking about their issue, right? Free speech and all that sure But there’s tactfulness and class, none of which this ad is.

There are other ways to get their message across than the picture of the smoking, drinking pregnant woman they chose (and you approved of). I am not one to complain or write letters but I personally look poorly at you for approving it as a business. By the way, that ad is being discussed on Facebook in different posts. I know it’s not just me who is disappointed in you as a business.

Morgan Barton, Nelson
