HGTV has canceled a new reality television show, Flip It Forward, that was scheduled to debut on Home and Garden Television this October, after learning the stars of the show are pro-life. During the program, brothers David and Jason Benham would be helping families purchase dream homes they otherwise couldn’t afford.
Home and Garden Television has decided to cancel the show after pro-abortion activists outed the brothers as pro-life. The pro-abortion group People for the American Way tagged the brothers as “anti-choice” extremists in an article on their web site and includes comments one of the brothers made about God abhorring abortion.
The network confirmed it was dropping the show, saying on its Facebook page: “HGTV has decided not to move forward with the Benham Brothers’ series.”
I am upset that you cancelled Flip It Forward. This good program would have helped people in need get the home of their dreams.
The abortion or religious views of the hosts of the program shouldn't matter and have no bearing on their ability to fix-up a home in a way that would make it beneficial for a family in need or their ability to make an HGTV show fun for viewers.
We the undersigned strongly oppose your decision to cancel the show and urge you to reconsider your decision!
