image for Mackenzie Phillips' "Abstinence Begins at Home" PSA Spot Considered too Controversial?
"Remember girls," said Mackenzie Phillips in her PSA spot. "Abstinence begins at home."

Los Angeles, California - The 10-second public service announcement (PSA) featuring Mackenzie Phillips standing in front of a giant poster sized photograph of now deceased father, John Phillips, engaged in an innocent kiss on the cheek was pulled by all of the major networks today, save one.

Phillips recorded the PSA before her appearance on Oprah and launching her book promotion, so TV executives are claiming they had no idea what the message was about until they already scheduled it to be aired on Saturday morning TV. A slot reserved primarily for children's programming.

"We saw the word abstinence," explained a spokesman for the networks. "And assumed Phillips was advising young girls to abstain from sex altogether. Not just with their dads."

Network executives say they are not necessarily opposed to getting the message out that incest is bad, only that using a PSA spot on Saturday morning TV is the improper venue.

"That kind of stuff belongs on an afternoon TV talk show slot," continued said a spokesman for the networks. "More kids are at home watching TV then."

ABC TV executives, however, said they would continue to do the responsible thing and run the controversial "Abstinence Begins at Home" Mackenzie Phillips PSA spots only during reruns of "The World's First Pregnant Man" episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show.
