Liberal Logic - NOW's Reaction to Tebow Ad

The over-hyped Tebow family ad has now aired. The ad was nothing more than mom talking about almost losing her baby. It was playful and sweet. The ad was done to draw attention to the website; it never mentioned abortion. Towards the end of the ad, it looks like Tim has tackled his mother. It was a playful lighthearted family moment.  

Since the pro choice people who were screaming about this ad can't admit to having egg on their faces this is what they come up with:

In remarks that are raising eyebrows from pro-life advocates, NOW President Terry O'Neill said that bit of the ad glorified violence against women.

"I am blown away at the celebration of the violence against women in it," she told the Los Angeles Times. "That's what comes across to me even more strongly than the anti-abortion message. I myself am a survivor of domestic violence, and I don't find it charming. I think CBS should be ashamed of itself."

Abortion advocate Amanda Marcotte had this post on Twitter that has drawn a reaction from pro-life advocates:

"Hey Mom! Tried to kill you from the womb and failed. How about a blind side tackle? Violence against Moms."

One of the saddest parts of this is there was another commercial for a candy bar (snickers I think) with Betty White, who was shown to be tackled and brought down into the dirt, but NOTHING was said about this. On the newscast I saw after the game, they named this the most popular commercial of the game. Apparently, tackling little old ladies is fine with them.

This only proves that their complaint is really against a woman who chose life. Pro abortion advocates refer to people as Anti-Choice, what is closer to the truth is that they are anti-life.

I love how ridiculous they are making themselves look, and everyone I know are rolling their eyes at these people.
Tebow's mother made a choice, and according to NOW, she made the wrong one.

Girl: NOW continues to marginalize themselves via this fool Terry O'Neill. This ludicrous take on the Tebow ad just completely discredits NOW and hammers their credibility on any issue going forward.

Recall just a month or two ago when Gen. Tony Cucolo came out with a new policy calling for penalties when soldiers within his Iraq command got pregnant (and as a result his unit strength suffered when the pregnancy interferred with them carrying out their duties), and Terry O'Neill called the guy stupid.

NOW's comments and the other comments are completely ridiculous. If you are pro choice, you should be supporting a woman's right to choose what is best for her.

Violence against women? Pah!

So I guess by that logic all of the football players should be in jail for assault. They tackle each other all the time.

NOW lost all credibility - for all time - when it stood by Bill Clinton, an alleged serial abuser of women, an alleged rapist of Juanita Broderick, and a man who glibly lied under oath to cover up his shameful pattern of conduct against women in order to weaken a woman's harassment case against him. They may as well have elected Bob Packwood President of their organization. One cannot support Bill Clinton and be pro women's rights. They sold their souls, and that's the end of them.
