Tim Tebow and His Parents
You're probably aware by now of Focus on Family's sponsorship of an ad scheduled to air during the Superbowl featuring Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow and his mother speaking for the cause of life.
Tim's mother experienced a life-threatening parasitic infection while pregnant and serving as a Christian missionary in the Philippines with her husband. Against medical advice, she refused an abortion and both she and her unborn son Tim survived the treatment for the infection. (22 year old Tim is now 6' 3" and 240 lbs.)
Controversy swirls around CBS for their decision to accept the ad(s), which have not yet been seen, but reportedly do not explicitly mention the word "abortion."
Last year, Catholicvote.org prepared pro-life ads to be aired during the Superbowl which were refused by NBC on the grounds they were too controversial. One pro-life ad featured an image of President Obama - nearly 2 million people have viewed the rejected ad on You Tube.
All kinds of pressure is being brought to bear on CBS to reject the ad. Stay tuned.
