The pro-abortion legal group that posted an offensive ad celebrating abortion has apparently dropped it, as it no longer shows up at YouTube.
The Center for Reproductive Rights posted the ad with the intro: “To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade we didn’t buy a ruby. Instead, the Center for Reproductive Rights asked Mehcad Brooks of the USA Network’s “Necessary Roughness” and HBO’s “True Blood” to prepare a special video message just for you.”
Now, YouTube says, “The video has been removed by the user,” when someone attempts to watch it.
Pro-life blogger Jill Stanek tells LifeNews on Twitter, “Thank @MehcadBrooks agent” for the video’s removal.

After the video came to light, Stanek wrote:
Offensive much? Were producers that stupid as not to see the video makes one of our points? Of course creepy cads love abortion.
Is there any feminist out there who won’t be insulted by this video? Or will they try to laugh it off? And blacks? Will they, too, shrug off the stereotype?
Noted Ryan Bomberger of TooManyAborted.com:
The Center for Reproductive Rights, like Planned Parenthood, certainly understands its main demographic. “Happy 40th Anniversary, Baby” ironically uses a man (who is normally treated as persona non grata) to pitch abortion.
The fact that CRR use a black man just screams irony. With the black abortion rate as high as it is and black fathers as absent as they are, it’s just sick to see Mehcad Brooks shill for the number one killer in the black community, and the killer of 55 million plus since ’73.
