Wonder what you would find if you frisked the controversial and shocking Focus on the Family Super Bowl advertisement featuring Florida quarterback Tim Tebow and his mother?
Answer: Another question… What was all the hype about?
Wow… Granted, this is one of the two advertisements that will be shown, but really? This was what the far-left “pro-choice” organizations were fussing over? After seeing this advertisement, they will have one of these reactions: “Man… I feel pretty stupid now and should have waited until I saw the ad first to open my mouth” or “Eh, they still mentioned ‘celebrate life’ at the end of the ad and this a total outrage!”
Overall, I think it is safe to say that this advertisement is simply advocating the choice to choose life, not advocating to end abortion completely. Once again, the far-left “pro-choice” organizations prove that they aren’t actually “pro-choice”… They are just pro-abortion.
Ed Morrissey – from Hot Air – gives you all something to think about tonight when you’re watching the Super Bowl commercials:
Besides calling her Heisman Trophy winning son a “miracle baby,” the ad never discusses explicitly the heartbreaking choice offered to Pam Tebow during her pregnancy. For that, the ad refers viewers back to Focus on the Family. Just remember that this was the commercial that infuriated feminists when you’re watching the GoDaddy commercials and skimpily-dressed women selling beer.
Although, there is nothing wrong with those type of commercials, haha.

Turns out the actual game-time advertisement featuring Tim Tebow and his mother was a funnier version of the first one posted above. You can’t go wrong with a Super Bowl ad where Tim Tebow tackles his own mother:
HAHA! Great twist to the advertisement that will once again throw far-left liberals off their rockers, but as Hot Air points out… They already have:
Pff, got to love liberal, feminist bloggers… Apparently there is no humor with them.

Wow! After the second Focus on the Family advertisement aired during the Super Bowl, Ed Morrissey – from Hot Air – and I gave two different predictions. While I agreed with his assessment, he predicted that the far-left would gripe about making light of domestic violence, while I predicted that they have absolutely no sense of humor. Well folks, the National Organization for Women (NOW) has proven us both right:
Unable to gain any tradition by calling the Focus on the Family Tim Tebow Super Bowl ad extremist or over the top, pro-abortion groups today are offering a new dig on the commercial. The president of NOW and other abortion advocates claim the ad promotes domestic violence.
In an attempt to fall in line with the humorous nature of most Super Bowl commercials, the Focus on the Family in-game ad shows Tebow tackling his mom and his mother playfully scolding him for interrupting her.
In remarks that are raising eyebrows from pro-life advocates, NOW president Terry O’Neill said that bit of the ad glorified violence against women.
“I am blown away at the celebration of the violence against women in it,” she told the Los Angeles Times. “That’s what comes across to me even more strongly than the anti-abortion message. I myself am a survivor of domestic violence, and I don’t find it charming. I think CBS should be ashamed of itself.”
Haha, not only is NOW completely off base and out of touch, they are enormous hypocrites too. I don’t recall NOW or any other feminist organizations erupting in outrage over this video:
Oh yeah! I forgot… Sarah Palin is a conservative woman and feminist organizations only stick up for women who hold the same political views and values.
