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.
