Why Won't Hulu Air An Ad By A Rape Survivor?

This week Hulu refused to air an ad by a rape survivor opposing Colorado’s Amendment 67. Amendment 67 would ban abortion, emergency contraception, and common forms of birth control. Now there is a campaign to demand that #HuluLetHerSpeak and run the rape survivor’s story.

Colorado is fighting one of the worst ballot measures in the country this November. Amendment 67, also known as "Personhood", would give a fertilized egg the same rights as an adult human.

Abortion would be illegal in all instances, even cases of rape, incest or to save the life of the mother. Many common forms of birth control, including the IUD and emergency contraception, would be illegal.

The No on 67 campaign submitted an ad from a rape survivor asking people to oppose Amendment 67. Hulu has declined to run the ad. Hulu claims they don't run ads that "advocate a controversial political or other public position."

So why not an ad from a rape survivor asking voters to oppose something as terrible as Amendment 67, which would have given the women's attacker more rights to her body than her?

Here is the request sent by the No on 67 campaign to Hulu asking them to reconsider their decision not to air the campaign's ad:

Hey Hulu, it's 2014. It's OK to talk about ladyparts, including abortion. Because women are under constant attack and the only way they can fight back is if they talk about it.

Want to do something to stand up to Hulu and all those others attacking the rights of Colorado's 2.6 million women. Go hear, learn more, take action.
