The ad that ND refused to run

The student newspaper of the University of Notre Dame–the Notre  Dame Observer–refused to run this version of an ad regarding the scandal of Joe Biden being awarded the Laetare Medal. Both the student head of advertising and the paper’s editor in chief referred to the subject of the photo as “fetal tissue.” and said that they were “uncomfortable” with running the photo in the ad–but with no other explanation as to why this photo is objectionable.  Those sponsoring the ad were forced to go with an ad that showed the grave site of aborted babies instead, to be published in the Sunday, May 15th edition.
