P&G productsA couple of recent TV commercials from the maker of dozens of recognizable, household brand names are drawing the ire of a pro-family group.

Monica Cole, director of OneMillionMoms, describes the commercials in question.

"Procter & Gamble had a 'Head & Shoulders' advertisement of a teen going to prom – and it just so happens she's going to prom with another female," she explains. "We ask companies just to remain neutral, [and this] wasn't necessary."

She adds that 1MM is also asking that Procter & Gamble cancel its Gillette ad featuring "a father and a child transitioning" to celebrate Father's Day. Cole argues that such commercials are unsuitable for children.

Cole, Monica"They're airing during family time; they're airing even during baseball games that we know children are watching," she tells OneNewsNow. "We find it extremely offensive and inappropriate, and [we're] hoping Procter & Gamble will get the message."

Cole says that instead of having a relaxing time enjoying television, parents are being forced to explain these two "twisted" commercials to their children who are very likely confused after seeing them.

According to the 1MM director, it's clear who Procter & Gamble supports; she adds that these particular ads promoting the homosexual and transgender agendas ultimately push conservative Christian families to the company's competitors.
