FALL RIVER -- A television ad urging teenagers to abstain from sex has
been deemed inappropriate for young children by some networks on
Comcast Corp. cable television and will not be seen on several
channels geared to younger viewers.

The spot, sponsored by the Catholic Social Services program, ACTION,
which stands for Abstinence Challenging Teens in Our Neighborhood, was
supposed to run on cable stations in seven communities in southeastern
Massachusetts. An official with Comcast said the decisions were up to
the individual networks and not the cable company.
