Anti-Christian, Pro-abortion Feminists Storm Super Bowl

Fans rooting for Planned Parenthood to win the Super Bowl have mounted a campaign to intimidate CBS Sports to cancel a pro-life Christian commercial featuring football superstar Tim Tebow.

UPDATE 2/5/10: Planned Parenthood Rebuttal for Super Bowl Ad

UPDATE 1/28/10: Debate with Focus on the Family (video):

-- From "Super Bowl ad featuring quarterback Tebow, mother riles abortion rights groups" by Hank Stuever and Emily Yahr, Washington Post Staff Writers 1/27/10

Florida quarterback prodigy Tim Tebow will appear in a 30-second ad purchased by the conservative group Focus on the Family that is scheduled to air during the nation's biggest football game on Feb. 7 on CBS.

Never one to be shy about touting his Christian beliefs (starting with those Bible chapter-verse references inscribed in white letters on black smudges under his eyes during games), Tebow will appear in the commercial with his mother, Pam, who reportedly will tell one of the Tebow family's favorite stories: How, after severe complications arose in her 1987 pregnancy, she declined medical advice to have an abortion. Her fifth child -- Tim -- was born and went on to win the Heisman trophy in 2007 (and is rarin' to go for the 2010 NFL draft).

After learning of the ad late Monday, Women's Media Center (speaking on behalf of the National Organization for Women, the Feminist Majority Foundation and other organizations) asked CBS to pull the ad. It also questioned how and why the network, which used to forbid "advocacy" advertising, agreed to air Focus on the Family's spot, which is valued at $2.5 million to $3 million.
