Much ado about nothing - The Tebow ad

"Focus on the Family" spent nearly $3 million for a 30-second television ad, aired during the Super Bowl.  In a minimalist black-and-white setting, Pam Tebow talks about her love for her "miracle baby" son, star Florida quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner, Tim Tebow.

Son tackles mom.  Mom and son hug and smile.

That's it. 

Feminists created a nationwide, month-long huff and stink because, although they claim to be more "tolerant"  than those provincials who do not agree with them, what these feminists  really are is not so much "pro-choice," but "no life."

Pam and Tim Tebow, Focus on the Family Super Bowl television ad:



Writing today for BigJournalism.com, Susan Swift, speculates on the rationale for "pro-choice" feminist groups like NARAL, NOW and Women's Media Center spending such an inordinate amount of time demonizing Pam Tebow for her choice not to abort her son in 1987.

"If I were to guess, the reason is that these "aborto-fanatics" (my term) cannot respond in kind.  Focus on the Family shows the triumph of choosing life.  How Mrs. Tebow's choice made a "we" out of "me."  What can NOW show?  What proud accomplishments can NARAL highlight?  A massive body count and the millions it has paid the abortion industry.

NARAL typically trumpets its "safe and legal" abortions.  So, why not a thirty-second spot showing one of these "safe and legal" abortions?  Or a tour of an abortion clinic?  Show pride in your work, NOW and NARAL!....

Or perhaps a more poignant commentary showing the legacy of abortion, akin to Mrs. Tebow's.   Maybe a commercial depicting an empty rocking chair, as a young woman's voiceover explains "I chose to terminate my pregnancy at 3 months; I'm proud I chose to continue my life plans and avoided the emotional experience of choosing adoptive parents for my baby boy."  Cut to an empty laboratory as a mother's voice proclaims "thirty-five years ago, I aborted my daughter; next week she would be publishing her research on a revolutionary cancer treatment.  Fortunately, I didn't have to pay her graduate-school bills." A wilted bouquet tied with tattered hanging tulle:  "Today would be my daughter's wedding day, except I chose to abort her 25 years ago.  I'm relieved I didn't choose to celebrate that special day."

Congratulations to CBS and the Super Bowl for  the brief time-out from the game to celebrate Tebows' focus on their family.
