Tea Party candidate’s anti-abortion ads banned from YouTube, not TV
The candidate behind the ads, Missy Reilly Smith, aligns herself with the Tea Party movement. She is running for D.C. delegate.
Smith, who is not supported by the D.C. Republican Party, formerly ran an anti-abortion advocacy group.
Local television stations will air the ads because the Communications Act of 1934 forces broadcast outlets to offer airtime to candidates, according to the report.
Smith speaks in a voiceover in the commercials.
“I was told it’s not a baby. They lied to me. They exploited me. Then I learned the truth, and I’ve suffered for years,” she says. “And believe me, I am angry. My heart has been ripped out. Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Norton — they all support the murder of babies and the abuse of women by abortion. It’s time to make child killing illegal again.”
Her ads can be viewed on Digital Journal.
