A collective of Women’s groups have their collective panties in a bunch over an ad that is set to air on CBS during the Super Bowl.
The ad is about Pam Tebow who on a mission trip to the Philippines became ill and was recommended by doctors to terminate her pregnancy at that time. Mrs. Tebow chose to keep the baby and eventually gave birth to two-time national champion Florida quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow.
Tim Tebow himself has handled the situation with class…
“I know some people won’t agree with it, but I think they can at least respect that I stand up for what I believe,” Tebow said. “I’ve always been very convicted of it (his views on abortion) because that’s the reason I’m here, because my mom was a very courageous woman. So any way that I could help, I would do it.”
The women’s groups are afraid that this will convey a pro-life message. So what if it does? There’s a word for people who want to silence the opinions of their opponents. It just escapes me at the moment. If you don’t want to hear a pro-life message then don’t watch the ad. It really is that simple. If you want your own ad pony up the money to get it played during the Super Bowl.
Not to mention this is one of the problems I have with abortion. If Pam Tebow terminated her pregnancy we would not have had one of the greatest collegiate athletes of all time, even though I’m not a fan. For each abortion that is committed you could be preventing the world from the person who goes on to cure cancer. But no, you’d rather deprive someone of that opportunity just because it doesn’t fit into your lifestyle.
The ultimate act of selfishness.
