    I'm not a fan of Focus on the Family/James Dobson, but CBS has the right to air any ad they want to. People who object are free to:

    1. Boycott the Superbowl and CBS network programming
    2. Boycott all sponsors on CBS

    I wish there were more organizations like FOF. They do a world of good and cost taxpayers ZERO.

    The letter calls on CBS to reject what the groups call an anti-choice ad that advances Focus on the Family's Agenda.
    I love how libs forget that choice means a person may choose NOT to do something. If the left is so pro-choice, then all options, including carrying a baby to term should be on the table correct? Oops, applying logic to a liberal argument, silly me.

    Pretty f-d up, when we live in a country where a little commercial celebrating life over death becomes so controversial.

    Tim Tebow surprised by Super Bowl ad controversy

    The former Gators quarterback says he doesn’t regret making the commercial.


    MOBILE, Ala. — Tim Tebow has been surprised by the controversy surrounding his anti-abortion ad that will air during the Super Bowl, but the protests from women’s groups have not caused him to regret his decision to film the ad.

    “I definitely didn’t think it would have this much hype and definitely that much buzz, but it’s something I believe in and I’ll stand up for,” Tebow said.

    Tebow filmed the 30-second ad with his mother, Pam, for the group Focus on the Family. The ad’s theme is “Celebrate Family, Celebrate Life.” On Monday, several women’s groups — most notably the National Organization for Women and the Feminist Majority — asked CBS not to air the ad during the Feb. 7 Super Bowl broadcast. In a Facebook note Tuesday night, former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin criticized those women’s groups.

    Anybody catch America Live with Megyn Kelly today? I'm so glad I recorded it. I'll use it for a smile when I need one. Gloria Allred came on to tell America that Mrs. Tebow is lying or at least omitting a very important fact. Allred was quite animated and confident in her indignation.

    Allred informed us that the Philippines had laws against abortion then. A woman having an abortion could be jailed for years, the doctor who performed an abortion could be jailed for years and those laws still exist to this day. Allred insisted that Mrs. Tebow was being dishonest by insinuating that she chose life for her son ignoring the danger his birth posed to her. Allred believes Mrs. Tebow had her son so she wouldn't go to jail and to not say so is dishonest. Allred was pretty pissed about the whole thing.

    You gotta love Kelly. She let Allred have her say and then she informed Allred that she'd done a little research. Filipino law stated then as it does now, that an exception exists that allows abortions where the mother's life is clearly in danger, as was Mrs. Tebow's by her doctor's admission.

    That hit Allred with a fastball right between her eyes. "I've never seen that exception... even if it does exist, Mrs. Tebow has to be honest about all the facts sounding the birth..."

    Kelly asked her, "What do you want her to say?"

    I am so glad I recorded this.
