Tim Tebow is a champion on and off the field. The son of missionaries to the Philippines, Tebow is the football phenomenon that almost wasn’t. During her pregnancy, Tebow’s mother Pam was informed that she had contracted dysentery from bad drinking water and that her child would be severely handicapped. She was advised to abort the baby. Pam and her husband Bob refused the suggestion and the rest they say is history.
You would think that such a story would be a source of encouragement and inspiration for millions. It makes perfect sense that such a story would be broadcast in a commercial to be aired during this year’s Superbowl. Who would not want to celebrate life in such a fashion? Well the list of pro-abortion groups who are incensed at this ad and CBS’s decision to air it is long and illustrious.
One of the more notable interviews on the Tebow ad controversy aired on the O’Reilly Factor this past Tuesday evening. Mr. O’Reilly had as his guest Jehmu Greene, president of the Women’s Media Center. It was interesting to note her complaint about the ad. Watch the following clip:
So according to Ms. Greene, and those whom she represents, the ad is objectionable because celebrating life denies women of their rights? If there is one thing that Ms. Greene illustrates by employing such vacuous statements is that there is not one shred of logic, or moral gravitas that favors abortion on demand. The people who support unrestricted abortion are offended by this ad because the message is clear: abortion is murder. If they cant take the heat then get out of the kitchen and spare the lives of millions of unborn innocents in the process.
I congratulate the Tebow’s and the Focus on the Family organization for wanting to air this ad. I hope that millions will see that life is precious. Too precious to be murdered by the abortion doctors saline solution and suction tubes.
