Women's Groups Attack Tim Tebow and Mother for Pro-Life Super Bowl Ad

Women's groups are attacking Tim Tebow for a pro-life ad to air during the Super Bowl. The ad was purchased by Focus on the Family, with the theme Celebrate Family, Celebrate Life. Tim will appear with his mother Pam, who made the decision not to abort her baby, Tim, during a difficult pregnancy...and that baby grew up to be a great Florida Gator quarterback. See a video below with interviews of Tim's fellow Florida University students.

NOW (National Organization for Women) has also voiced their objections. The following quote is from Jehmu Greene, president of the New York-based Women's Media Center.

“An ad that uses sports to divide rather than to unite has no place in the biggest national sports event of the year - an event designed to bring Americans together,”
The pressure is on CBS to refuse to air the ad. So much for free speech. You have a healthy young man, standing beside his mother, talking about (maybe - haven't seen it) how much it means to him that his mother gave him life - and the ad isn't worthy to be seen? Much of the disdain for the ad is pointed toward Focus on the Family, a "Christian" group that is a magnet for Liberal abuse.

The point is, every woman has a choice by law, but when life is the choice, the sharks come out to feed. Tim Tebow has choices, and one of those choices is to make his own decisions about the morality of aborting a baby. He has the right to make the ad, and when it airs, it will speak the mind of millions of men and women. This young man refuses to be quieted. It is a strange day when we have to defend saving a human life.
