Tim Tebow’s Super Bowl Ad will “Celebrate Family, Celebrate Life”… Pro Abortion Groups in Arms over Pro Life Commercial

 

Pro-abortion groups do not what Heisman trophy winners Tim Tebow’s ad to bee seen or heard. Tim Tebow walks the walk …

There is a controversy at the Super Bowl and it has nothing to do with any of the players from the Indianapolis Colts or New Orleans Saints.

All eyes and Gator Nation will be tuned in on Tim Tebow’s decision to star in a Super Bowl ad slated to air on CBS on Feb. 7 that will focus on “Celebrate Family, Celebrate Life.”  CBS’s decision to go with the commercial  has sparked controversy from Women’s groups that are pro-abortion to stop the ad. The Women’s Media Center and over 30 other liberal and women’s advocacy groups sent a letter to CBS, “… we urge you to immediately cancel this ad and refuse any other advertisement promoting Focus on the Family’s agenda.”

The ad spot was purchased by Focus on the Family, a conservative Christian organization that places emphasis on marriage and parenthood.

The Associated Press reported this week that the ad’s theme will be “Celebrate Family, Celebrate Life,” with Pam Tebow sharing the story of her difficult 1987 pregnancy — instead of getting an abortion she decided to give birth to Tebow, the now-famous quarterback who went on to become a Heisman Trophy winner, leading the Gators to two BCS wins.

If you do not know the Tim Tebow story, Jim Hofts, the Gateway Pundit has a synopsis of it via Big Government.com. (VIDEO)

Tim Tebow was born on August 14, 1987 in the Philippines to Bob and Pam Tebow, who were serving as Christian missionaries at the time. While pregnant Pam suffered a life-threatening infection with a pathogenic amoeba. Because of the drugs used to rouse her from a coma and to treat her dysentery, the fetus experienced a severe placental abruption. Doctors expected a stillbirth and recommended an abortion to protect her life. Pam carried Timothy to term, and both survived- via Wikipedia.

      The ad is about Tebow’s mother making a CHOICE, isn’t that what the pro-choice crowd wants? A woman made a choice, but not the one pro-choice wants women to know about.

      Ladies—with all due respect—I don’t think Superbowl Halftime (w/a Male-dominated viewing audience) is the right venue to air such an important and controversial Ad as this.

      There is a time & a place for everything—& this isn’t it.

      To all the pro-abortion types out there.

      With all sincerity, why were you not aborted?

      It is all relative. Many past Super Bowl Ads have offended me. They do not conform to my value system but … I either watch them or … take the opportunity to quickly get myself a cuppa tea and a goodie before the game comes back on.

      Prostitutes want to choose what
      they do with their bodies too!

      NewGirlBoson-With all due respect to you-I don’t know why not? Why is the ad controversal to you? This is about choosing life, why is that controversal? I wish I would have heard more messages like that before I made the worst decision of my life 20 years ago. Many ladies feel that way, I know them!

      Waaterboy, the next time you get pregnant you can make your own choice. I don’t think your mother was given one.

      #5, I cannot imagine any rational person being “pro-abortion”. I am pro-freedom, generally speeking that includes one’s own say so of their own body. Also, some have different belief structures than more right winged conservatives…we might believe the soul takes up residency upon birth.

      Our family, a large extended one and clan like lived on one 55 arce truck/nursery farm. Also we did share cropping, syrup making etc. The real dirt poor people. Yet, surprize, we had a medical doctor for a family friend. He was a kind person and treated us like 100% people.

      Abortion was illegal at that time. This doctor did countless abortions. Compassionatley trying to save the lives of young women from death by coat hanger, a hot tool, poisonous laxitives, suicide, or late night barber shop parlor’s. This doctor, doing something I could never do, sure enough could explain the compassion involved; explain bazzar circumstances…some reasons fade with changing social acceptance, all deadly real to the unfortunate. And no one can know the value of all reasons in anothers head.

      The doctor supposedly did these abortions free of charge, not that that makes the practice glamorous.

      There are serious abuses of abortion. Where the majority are protected with freedom, not nearly everywhere agreed, but everytime somewhere — will be the “abuse”. Religion and finger pointing/life and freedom taking, has far more blame in history than rights of choices for all.

    13. Rusty Bridges on January 29th, 2010 10:48 am

      This commercial is just saying “what if”, do with it what you will. If it saves someone from greif later in life it is worth that much. Nobody is damning anybody for abortion, go take a leak for 30 seconds and don’t watch it.

      What have we become when the first response to an accidental pregnancy is kill it instead of using proper birth control beforehand WTF?

      Julie, God bless you and heel you. I know someone close who is troubled from that same decision.

      Rather ironic that the PRO-CHOICE crowd is AGAINST the choice of LIFE rather than DEATH.

      Tells us a lot about what their agenda is really all about and its pro-abortion, not pro-choice.

      One sides interest in labeling or rights restriction, does not make the same better for the other side.

      The earlier battle, seems to me, is the defeat of liberals. Fractioning out again at this time, will split what we have found in common.

      I think “pro-abotion” an accusation, “pro-choice” an attempt at understanding. Any Freedom, never once without cost.

    17. NewGirlBoston on January 29th, 2010 9:00 pm

      Chosing LIFE is fine, I applaud that and respect that. I get that. What I posted was that I don’t believe Superbowl Halftime is the right place or time to air the Ad.

      Regardless of what country- here or anywhere around the World- I do not believe any Governmental body has the legal right to tell a Man or Woman what to do with their own body. Period.

      There is no right or wrong answer here- this is only my viewpoint. I support life. And I also support a Woman’s choice. I do not support late-term pregnancies and each circumstance is different so please do not preach to me. I have a right to my opinions and I am not necessarily “Pro-Abortion”. A Zygote is a Zygote- I do not think aborting a fetus with a heartbeat is justifiable either but I also stand by what I said above. As a woman, it’s MY BODY, MY CHOICE and no one else’s business except the Biological Father also responsible for the pregnancy. He has a right to some input also. Still not his body though.

      Please don’t preach, chastise or scold though bc that is a little OT—the thread was as titled above. Is this an appropriate place for an Ad like this?? Would there be so much controversy if it was? Obviously not. This is such a devisive issue so I really don’t even like discussing it with uber-Conservatives. You can call me & others like me Pro-Abortion- that is a negative spin that is not accurate. That is not the true or technical definition of Pro-Choice.

      Thank you

    18. NewGirlBoston on January 29th, 2010 9:01 pm

      #17—*** meant do not support late-term abortions, not pregnancies

    19. Rupzip on January 30th, 2010 12:00 pm

      Tim Tebow stands for what he believes. And this is offensive?

      Why is this different than those who believe in beer or outlandish behavior?

      I don’t like Coors Light,but I’ll bet there will be a commercial about it. I can watch it. I can turn away. But their commercial is their right to try to sway me away from my beer.

      A good post on this can be found be found at”

      #19- You have a valid point but also I never said or inferred that I would find an ad like this “offensive”. It’s not.

      Simply said Superbowl halftime wasn’t the time or place for it, IMO but maybe I am wrong. Airing Tebow’s Ad would however provoke many Women like myself to keep questioning this perplexing issue, which believe me- I do.

      As a female I have never been in the difficult position of having to even make this choice, and I’m thankful for that. Deep down inside I believe that if I ever were- I would most likely chose life.

      Sen.-elect Brown says he supports abortion rights

      WASHINGTON — Republican Sen.-elect Scott Brown of Massachusetts says he opposes federal funding for abortions, but thinks women should have the right to choose whether to have one.

      Brown tells ABC’s “This Week” that he disagrees with his party’s position that the Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion should be overturned.

      Brown says the abortion question is one that’s best handled by a woman, her family and her doctor. He also says more effort needs to go into reducing the number of abortions in the U.S.

      Brown has said the GOP shouldn’t take his vote for granted on every issue. He says he’s FISCALLY CONSERVATIVE but more MODERATE on social issues.

      Brown recently won the Senate seat long held by liberal Democrat Edward M. Kennedy, who died last summer.

      http://content.usatoday.com/communities/onpolitics/post/2010/01/a-scott-brown-republican-is-pro-choice-anti-tax/1?csp=hf
      ____________
      SM: well of course they are not. However, i do not have to agree with Brown on every issue. Would I vote for him to be my Senator? Probably not.

      Would I have supported him to kill Obamacare and alter Obama’s world. Hell Yes.

      Brown talks about lessing the amount of abortions, yet he is pro-choice. Kinda hard to do when the pro-abortion crowd do not want any info out there for people to see like the Tim Tebow commercial.

      Tim’s mom made a choice … too bad its not the one that the Pro-Choice agenda folks are pushing. That is why they are so upset.

      What a concept, a choice my be to be pro-life!
