Super Bowl

Most of you know that CBS accepted an ad from Focus on the Family sharing the Tebow story. I am not a Tebow fan as far as football is concerned but as a person, I admire him and his family. I think that their story is a compelling one. I think that the message of life should be proclaimed from the highest heights. That is not the issue. The issue is whether it should ever be allowed to be aired on TV during the Super Bowl. Did FoF pay for the ad? Yes! End of discussion. Yet that isn't the end of the story.
The National Organization for Women and the Women's Media Center are all up in arms about the ad. Why? They claim that they don't want it aired due to the fact that FoF isn't who it claims to be. Also, this ad, to them, seeks to divide the country during a game that supposedly is unifying. Are the Saints and the Colts fans unified? I think not! However, the real reason that they don't want the ad aired on TV is that they don't want women to be informed. They don't want women to know that there is something other than abortion for them, no matter what the diagnosis is. Abortion always ends in death 100% of the time for the baby. The doctors aren't always 100% correct in their diagnosis. Abortion also does something to your soul and spirit that cannot be undone. The wound can heal but there will always be a scar left behind.
NOW and Media Center buy your own space and make your own ad. Quit trying to silence others views on this issue. The first amendment is still applicable as far as I know so let FoF express the opinion! Why don't you take a look at some of the ads that have half naked women in them prostituting themselves for money to sell beer, cars, and soft drinks. That does more damage to women than Mrs. Tebow's story will ever do!
