7. It's about breast cancer. The ad features breasts. I am not sure there
is an issue there.

If the ad was for furniture or laundry detergent your point would be stronger.

The appeal to sexuality is relative. Should they have appealed to ones emotions with tragic tales of cancer? Should the ad be a sterile unemotional appeal for cash?

I agree that there is some implied sexuality, but I do not find it offensive or manipulative in the least.
