Abortion advocates protest plans for pro-life ad on Super Bowl broadcast

January 27, 2010

Feminist groups have expressed outrage that the CBS television network will broadcast a pro-life advertisement during its Super Bowl broadcast. The ad, sponsored by Focus on the Family, features the testimony of a woman who recalls her decision to continue a pregnancy under difficult circumstances, giving birth to an infant child who would grow up to be Tim Tebow, the All-American quarterback for the University of Florida. A feminist group said that it was improper for CBS to give air time for such a "strident anti-abortion rights message" during the football broadcast.

    Hmmm... so much for the current secular mantra about "reducing the number of abortions." Apparently THAT goal is only operative when the reducing is done by contraception. But becoming pregnant and then choosing to not to abort the baby? How "strident" even to suggest such a thing!
