Clear Channel Lifts Ban on Abortion Clinic Radio Ads
Clear Channel lifted its ban on radio advertisements from the Wichita reproductive health clinic South Wind Women's Center on Tuesday. The ads were originally banned in July for divisive content, although they promoted general reproductive health care services for women with no mention of abortion.
