PC double standard on abortion ad for Super Bowl

The Associated Press reports that the National Organization for Women, The Feminist Majority, and other groups are objecting to a Focus on the Family television ad featuring University of Florida quarterback Tim Tebow and his mother that is scheduled to run on CBS during the Super Bowl.

CBS reportedly has approved the unpublished script for the ad, apparently creating concern among the pro-choice media. Though the precise content of the ad is apparently unknown, Mr. Tebow and his mother are well-known opponents of abortion (due to an illness, Mrs. Tebow was advised to undergo an abortion when she pregnant with Tim.)

The story quotes Terry O'Neill, the president of the National Organization of Women as saying the ad is "...Extraordinarily offensive and demeaning...It is offensive to hold one way out as being a superior way over everybody else's."

Ms. O'Neill's position typifies the politically correct, passive/aggressive mindset. Namely, if she finds your perspective to be incompatible with her own, you are wrong-minded, and must not be heard. And, she is right, because, well, she said so. Even if she is holding her "way" out as superior to "everybody else's.

Other MSM writers can find an even less substantial basis for objecting to the advertisement. According to the article, Gregg Doyel of CBSSports writes that he doesn't want to hear about abortion on Super Bowl Sunday, calling the Big Game "the holiest day of the year" and stating that "February 7 is simply not the day to have that discussion."

For the politically correct class, abortion is a topic that should never be discussed because, well, there is just no moral justification for it (the discussion.) And for the folks afraid of the discussion, there is simply no convenient time to converse on the matter. Case closed. PC is a one-sided language.
