"Fox has said 'yes' to drag queens and 'no' to abortion survivors. Celebrating sexual fantasy while denying the value of every life... could the soul of America be any more lost?"
January 30, 2020 — The following quote may be attributed to Dr. James Dobson, President of the James Dobson Family Institute, regarding the apparent decision of Fox Sports to run ads featuring drag queens during Super Bowl programming while ignoring a pro-life ad submission:
"For decades, I've enjoyed watching the Super Bowl with family and friends. When the cleats hit the field for the greatest sporting event of the year, most of America tunes in to watch the action. When play stops, it's possible that even more Americans focus their attention on the television. In fact, I know some people who only watch the Super Bowl for the commercials.
"This year, families may want to rethink their plans, or at least keep the remote close at hand. I've learned that on Sunday, Fox plans to broadcast a commercial featuring drag queens. I hope I don't need to explain to parents why their young children might be troubled or confused at the sight of men dressed up as women.
"It amazes me that Fox would choose to transform the Super Bowl from a family-friendly event into an opportunity to promote a gender ideology that goes against the most basic biological realities, as well as the sincerely held religious beliefs of millions of Americans. To say I'm disappointed would be a huge understatement.
"What's worse, news reports suggest that Fox has refused to approve a pro-life commercial produced by Faces of Choice for Super Bowl Sunday, one in which abortion survivors tell the world that they are precious human beings who deserve a chance to participate in the ultimate contest—life.
"So there you have it. Fox has said 'yes' to drag queens and 'no' to abortion survivors. Celebrating sexual fantasy while denying the value of every life... could the soul of America be any more lost?
"I urge you to make your voices heard. Contact Fox and demand that they prioritize family entertainment and the value of life over harmful gender ideology and sexual fantasy. Also, please consider signing the My Faith Votes petition in support of Faces of Choice.
"There is such a thing as truth. Let's stand for it."
