CBS has approved a commercial sponsored by Focus on the Family to run during the Super Bowl. The ad does not take a subtle approach to getting the pro-life message out; instead it asks viewers to imagine if college football star Tim Tebow's mother Pam had aborted him.
Pam recounts that after getting sick during a mission trip to the Philippines, doctors recommended she abort her fifth child, Tim. If she had followed their advice, the logic suggests, Tim would never have won the Heisman Trophy, Florida would never had won two football championships, and Pam wouldn't have her wonderful son. The ad misses the point that Pam Tebow was still given a choice between risking her health and having the baby, or following the doctors' recommendation for an abortion. But leaving aside the merits of the argument, do you think the ad should run during the Super Bowl?
