Super Bowl Commercial

During the Super Bowl, this year, CBS is selling 30-second ads for around $2.5 million. Focus on the Family bought a spot to air a pro-life message.

Tim Tebow and his mother Pam will tell a personal story. When she was pregnant with Tim, she was diagnosed with amoebic dysentery and she went into a coma. The treatment she received could damage or kill an unborn baby. The doctors advised her to abort the baby. Her and her husband, being strong Christians and missionaries to the Philippines, chose to keep the baby.

Tim was born as a healthy baby and has grown up to be one of the top college football players of all time. He is the first sophomore to win the Heisman Trophy, which is an award to the year's best football player.

Though Focus on the Family has not released the details of the message they will air during the game, they did let the word out about doing the spot. This knowledge has sparked an outrage from various left-wing feminist and pro-abortion groups. These groups are demanding that CBS refuse to play the ad. Their reasoning, as quoted from The Arizona Republic newspaper, "which critics say is likely to convey an anti-abortion message." Duh, you think! Why do you think a strong, pro-life group, like Focus on the Family would pay that kind of money?

We all need to support CBS for showing the ad, if the continue their current position.

"Pro-Choice" appears to only be a good thing when the pro-death leftists are deciding your choice for you. To them, CBS should not have a choice. The viewers should not be presented with a Pro-Life choice. Only pro-death or anti-life conclusions are acceptable.

  1. How exciting! I can't wait to see it. I was walking into Walgreens the other day and noticed out of the corner of my eye that one of the gossip magazines, maybe PEOPLE?, had Sara Palin and someone else (didn't look long enough) with the headline, "We're Glad We Chose Life" and she was holding her son with Downsyndrome. I meant to stop back by the shelf and look at it or buy it, but I forgot. At least a couple people with pro-life messages are getting mainstream attention for it.
    The week before last was National Right to Life week and our church had a sermon about abortion. I, of course, was called out halfway for a crying baby, but heard some amazing and heartbreaking statistics at the beginning. You can hear it at satisfiedinjesus.org.
