CBS Does the Right Thing for Super Bowl XLIV
IconI am so proud of the CBS Television Network.  There's been a ridiculous furor over a planned Super Bowl ad featuring college football star Tim Tebow, funded by Focus on the Family.  It recounts the story of Pam Tebow's pregnancy in 1987.  After getting sick, she ignored doctors' recommendations to abort her fifth child, and gave birth to Tim Tebow, who went on to win the 2007 Heisman Trophy and guide the Florida Gators to two BCS championships. This should be an inspirational story for women.  Not according to NOW (the National Organization of "I don't know what kind of" Women), NARAL, and other organizations which support women killing the babies in their bodies if they wanna.  These "feminista" types generally call themselves "pro-choice."  Well, it looks like they're not too happy about the promotion of women who don't make the choice to kill their baby. When a woman's inspirational story of making the choice to avoid an abortion to take the risk of giving birth to her child becomes controversial in a culture, that culture has degraded to a horrible point.  It is frightening to me that NOT killing the baby in your body is controversial, but killing the baby in your body is not controversial. Here's my idea:  let's make an ad for the "pro-killing baby" feminista types.  Show a brief clip of the baby being macerated and then shift focus to a happy woman who's celebrating that death and her resulting freedom. Then let's make an ad for a woman who doesn't want her baby who goes to term and gives the baby to a stable family - a married mom and dad -- for adoption, and shift focus to a happy woman who's celebrating that life and her freedom. Then, let's vote.
